The British government has moved London to its second-highest COVID-19 alert level.

Authorities seek to slow the exponential rise in infection rates across the country.

The government also increased the risk level in seven other areas, meaning millions of people will be barred from meeting socially with anyone from outside their households and they will be asked to minimize travel.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock told the House of Commons that he recognized these restrictions are hard on individuals and businesses, but says tough decisions are needed now to keep people safe.
