Fine for house parties as UK toughens Covid lockdown rules

Jan 22, 2021 07:51 IST

UK Home Secretary Priti Patel on Thursday announced a new 800 pound fine on anyone attending a house party of 15 people or more as she issued a warning against breaches of the country's stringent stay-at-home coronavirus lockdown.

Addressing a virtual briefing from 10 Downing Street in London, the senior Cabinet minister said the latest infection figures show that the UK is not "out of the woods" yet and therefore it is “absolutely crucial” that everyone follows the rules on social distancing.

As she revealed the daily Covid-19 death toll of 1,290, Patel warned the “small minority” who continue to break rules would face tougher fines and stricter police enforcement.
