The COVID-19 alert in the United Kingdom was on Monday raised to the highest level (5).
This means the National Health Service (NHS), the government-funded healthcare system is on the brink of collapse.
Under level 5, there is a risk of hospitals being overwhelmed. Stricter social distancing measures will now be enforced.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson will announce lockdown measures during an address at 8pm.
A statement by the government said the spread of the new variant of COVID-19 has led to rapidly escalating case numbers across the country.

Since the pandemic outbreak in 2020, the UK has recorded more than 2.71 million cases and 75,400 deaths.
