Bradford has been urged to move from Tier 3 restrictions to Tier 2 tomorrow when the government looks at the Tier system again.
The district will learn its fate tomorrow in the first rescheduling of the government level system to deal with the coronavirus.
Bradford Council has called for the move to Tier 2, and Philip Davis has backed the move to a tougher level.
On December 2, Bradford and the rest of West Yorkshire were placed under Tier 3 restrictions for attempting to transition and for a strict set of rules.
This means that while hospitality venues such as pubs and restaurants could be reopened, people were banned from indoors or in private outdoor settings, and Bradford City fans could not attend the Valley Parade.
Other areas placed in a slightly lighter Tier 2 were able to take part in meals or live sports, movies or theaters.
Like many places in Tier 3, especially West Yorkshire, Bradford has seen a significant drop in infection over the past fortnight, while Tier 2, especially in London, has seen an increase.
The government will announce tomorrow, Wednesday, December 30, whether there will be any change in the levels of the ongoing zones, and it was revealed yesterday that the capital city will move to Tier 3 after the rise of the Covid case.
The infection rate in West Yorkshire currently stands at 1,161.7 infections per 100,000 people, the national average for the seven days is 1 average6.3 compared to December 6, the most up-to-date, reliable statistic.
Shipley’s Conservative MP Philip Davis was a vocal critic of the lockdown and restrictions on the economy throughout the Covid-19 epidemic.
He believes it would be “absolutely right” to move West Yorkshire to Tier 2.
Mr Davis said: “As you know, I’m not a big fan of levels, but there’s absolutely no question about it,” Mr Davis said.
“If London could be in Tier 2 at the time of the first announcement, we are not in a worse position than they are and should be in Tier 2.
“Our rates were down at that time and their prices were going up, and London was running on Tier 3 first thing on Wednesday and that’s exactly what happened.
“Bradford’s rate has dropped and the ship is still even lower, so it would be completely unacceptable if we put it in Tier 3.
“If it was right for them, it is our right now; I hope we will be treated the same and that is what I have been saying and arguing over and over again. ”
Bradford Council Leader Councilor Susan Hinkcliffe has called for the district to be moved to Tier 2 to revive Bradford’s economy and protect it from immediate and future health effects.
He said: “We asked if the whole district could be moved to Tier 2.
“However, the relaxation that the government has done during the Christmas period is a cause for concern for public health professionals who have been warned while advising to impose more restrictions at this time.
“It simply came to our notice then. While we are relieved that the overall infection rate in our district is declining, we know from other regions how the infection rate may increase again.
“Our hospitals are tired of this second wave and still very busy No one wants to come back to this situation.
“On the other hand, our district has been under sanctions for months, and we are deeply concerned that leaders across West Yorkshire, as well as those who maintain extremely high restrictions, will have an impact on both our district’s economy and its well-being.”
“We have seen people losing their livelihoods, families being torn apart and young people being badly affected by the impact of both education and employment.
“It will inevitably have an impact on health for many years to come. That’s why we have asked to go to Tier 2 and have a lawsuit to do it.
“Whatever decision they make, we will ask the government to take the necessary steps to provide emergency financial assistance and support with a recovery plan to protect jobs and businesses at a critical time in our district.”
“We want those businesses that are allowed to open to take every step to protect their customers and ensure that they are open in a safe and secure way, and we urge every resident to do what you can to protect yourself, your family and your community.” ask Against the virus during this festival.
“Remember the hands, the face, the place and let’s think about those who are weak at this time and we try our best to keep them safe.”
Whatever happens on Wednesday, key staff have created a video to tell people to follow the guidelines to stop the infection.
The video, prepared in West Yorkshire, features doctors, police, firefighters, beanmen, road maintenance teams and teachers at the county’s local resilience forum.
In the video, Dr. James Thomas, Clinical Chair of Bradford District and Craven CCG, said: “I can only continue to come to work, see patients in surgery and at their homes, and talk to many on the phone, stay healthy.
“Please continue to follow the guidelines and let me help you. Let’s work together to protect us and our families. ”
