UK city of Leicester could be the first to face local lockdown after virus surge

The central English city of Leicester could be the country's first to face a local lockdown due to a rise in coronavirus cases, the UK's Home Secretary Priti Patel said Sunday. The Midlands city recorded 658 new cases in the two weeks up to June 16, many linked to fresh outbreaks at food production plants. Patel told the BBC that there have been 'flare-ups across the country in recent weeks, in just the last three or four weeks in particular'. 'For local outbreaks, it is appropriate to have local solutions in terms of infection control, social distancing, screening and many tools,' she added.
