NEWS | Three further COVID-19 cases recorded in Herefordshire as UK records 4,368 new cases

Public Health England has confirmed that a further three cases of COVID-19 have been recorded in Herefordshire, taking the total number of positive cases of the virus to 990 since the outbreak started.

In the United Kingdom, 4,368 new cases were recorded, with further restrictions expected to be announced by the Prime Minister as early as tomorrow.

Boris Johnson will chair an emergency COBRA meeting on Tuesday ahead of a statement on the next steps in tackling the coronavirus pandemic.

It comes on a day when the prime minister will also chair cabinet – and it is expected he will announce new measures designed to curb the number of COVID-19 infections.

“One thing he will do is reiterate his commitment to working together with the devolved administrations as one United Kingdom in response to the rising infection rates that we’re seeing across the UK,” the PM’s spokesman said.
