Alan McGuinness at Sky News tweets: "Boris Johnson suggests England may not go back to the regional tiers system when lockdown is eased. "It may be that a national approach, going down the tiers in a national way, might be better this time round, given that the disease is behaving much more nationally," he says. The PM adds he is "keeping an open mind" on the subject, noting "it may be that we will go for a national approach but there may be an advantage still in some regional differentiation as well"."

  • Unclear what 'behaving much more nationally' means. May indicate the changes in cases, hospitalisations are becoming more uniform across the country, rather than localised spikes.
  • If this is the case it is likely to result in a more prolonged lockdown, with the whole nation having to wait in full lockdown to wait for cases/hospitalisations in the most hard-hit areas to decline before restrictions can be removed, rather than some regions moving out earlier than others.
