LONDON, Oct. 20 (Xinhua) -- British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Tuesday said that Greater Manchester will move into tier three, the highest of COVID-19 restrictions, from midnight on Thursday.
The prime minister, speaking to a virtual press conference at Downing Street, said that Greater Manchester will receive 22 billion pounds (about 28.48 billion U.S. dollars) of a support package.
The latest development came after the British government and Manchester leaders failed to agree on extra funding.
