Will Lockdown become localised?

UNIVERSITY NEWS LAST UPDATED : 28 MAY 2020

Centre for Brexit Studies Researcher David Hearne has shared his thoughts and views on Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the Test and Trace system, which kicks off in England and Scotland today.

With the aim of the system to lift blanket lockdown restrictions and move towards localised, targeted measures, David discussed if we could expect lockdown depending on the area you like in the coming weeks.

With more than 60 Conservative MPs defying Boris Johnson’s calls to ‘move on’ from the Dominic Cummings controversy, David discussed the potential impact Boris Johnson standing by his adviser and going against many backbench MPs could have on the Conservative Party.

The expert also discussed the latest in the Brexit process, and what advantages Northern Ireland could have access to.
