The Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) recently warned a "circuit breaker" national lockdown could help control the spread of the virus with increasing areas of the country put under stricter lockdown. Today, it was announced areas in the West Midlands, including Birmingham, will be the latest regions to move into Tier 3 restrictions.


Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick said that although COVID rates are in a "bad place in all parts of the country", the Government still does not want a second national lockdown.

Express.co.uk readers were asked between 4.11pm yesterday and 12.16pm today whether Mr Johnson should follow SAGE advice and enforce a national shutdown.

Out of the 4,607 people people who voted, a majority of 3,180 people (68 percent) said they did not think there should be a second lockdown.

However, 1,363 voters (31 percent) said they did think the UK should enter the toughest restrictions again.

And 64 people (one percent) said they did not know.

People also shared their views online as they rejected calls for another lockdown.

One reader said: "We already know how this goes.

"We have all already seen it and history is repeating itself except this time we really do know how prevalent this disease is."

Another person added they did not think lockdowns worked.
