The government has agreed tougher infection control restrictions against the novel coronavirus ahead of the start of the school year, hoping to brake a resurgence in new cases.

Ministers decided on new rules to come into force from Tuesday, including limiting gatherings to 10 people rather than 20 previously. Sales of alcohol will be barred from 8 pm as will drinking in public spaces. Meanwhile sporting venues will remain closed to fans ahead of the football championship kicking off next week.
