    West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper has commented on the announcement that West Lancashire is to be placed in Tier 3 level restrictions from midnight tonight, she said:
    “I very much welcome any interventions to stop the spread of Covid-19 which protect the health and wellbeing of my West Lancashire constituents, and saves lives.

    “While the restrictions are welcome in terms of reducing contact to bring down the spread of the virus, what is not welcome is the manner in which this whole fiasco has been handled, and the complete lack of resource being provided to support the restrictions.

    “Residents and businesses have been left in limbo all week with Government leaks indicating what might happen, but no decisions made upon which to plan.

    “I am still unclear on what financial support is coming to West Lancashire to support the new restrictions, have the council been given extra funding to start the food hubs again? Have the police been given extra resource or powers to enforce the measures?

    “As with many decisions being made by Government, they haven’t thought about or planned fully for the consequences.

    “West Lancashire needs to be supported by central Government with funding and resource so that constituents’ health and safety is protected.”

    It’s not like Brexit at all. This is a pandemic and things change as the situation is constantly evolving.

    Not a pandemic, numbers far too low - it was downgraded in March to an epidemic.

    You need to leave the glue to when your building Airfix models!

    It IS a pandemic!

    An Epidemic is a disease that affects a large number of people within a community, population or region.

    A Pandemic is an Epidemic that’s spread over multiple countries or continents.

    In simple terms, a pandemic is an epidemic that has traveled.

    Do you have a source about it being downgraded?
    According to The World Health Organisation It was declared a pandemic in March and it is still classed as a pandemic. Stop peddling fake news during these dangerous times. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/COVI...inside%20China.
