People in Birmingham won’t be allowed to mix with other households from Tuesday
Birmingham is now the city with the second highest COVID transmission rate
From Tuesday, households in Birmingham will be banned from mixing with each other, after having the second highest COVID-19 transmission rate in England.
This means that the whole of Birmingham, including Selly Oak and Edgbaston, will not be able to socialise with anyone outside of the people they live with.
Until Tuesday, people are simply advised to take precautions to prevent further transmissions.
Coronavirus infections have risen to 85.4 per 100,000 people, a significant increase from 35 the week before.
Whether this is due to students moving back into the city or actions from the city’s population is currently uncertain, but with one of the most affected areas of Birmingham being Edgbaston, this could have influenced decisions.
Andy Street, West Midlands Mayor, said: “The areas will now be escalated to an area of national intervention, with a ban on people socialising with people outside their own household.”
