Pound Slumps as England Set for Third Lockdown to Curb Virus Spread

Prime Minister Boris Johnson imposed a third national lockdown for England until mid-February to curb rising infections that threaten to overrun hospitals across the country.Unlike the previous lockdown in the spring, the UK will be "rolling out the biggest vaccination programme in its history," the prime minister said.The prime minister warned that while the vaccine would eventually lead to the lifting of many restrictions, there would be a time lag before the pressure alleviated on the National Health Service.Ahead of this decision, the prime minister had faced calls from opposition leaders to impose a new national lockdown to allow vaccines to be delivered.
