Weatherspun director Tim Martin warned that pubs and restaurants would be completely wiped out – with up to ten million jobs on the line.
The hospitality industry could be devastated if stricter local measures are introduced to fight the carpanvirus and the second national lockdown card, which lasts for two weeks, can be on.

TD Martin, director of JD Weatherspun, which employs 43,000 people in its pubs and hotels, said many small spaces have already been walled off since the first lockdown.
He said more sanctions would be “more horrific,” the Times reported.
Kate Nichols, chief executive of Lobby Group UK Hospitality, said around 900,000 workers in the industry were still at risk and their jobs were at risk because of Prime Minister Boris Johnson bringing restrictions on parts of the UK to fight the second wave. -19
Pub chains want Chancellor Ishii Sunak to continue the Farou scheme, which should slash beer tariffs by the end of October, as well as increase VAT.
Mr Johnson is currently looking at a “circuit break” closure that could effectively imply that the country has been in a national lockdown for two weeks, as the number of coronavirus cases has increased in recent days.
The number of new cases on Friday is at the top of four thousand.
London Mayor Sadiq Khan says additional measures in the capital appear to be a “growing possibility”.
Nick McKenzie, chief executive of Green King, which oversees 2,700 pubs, restaurants and hotels, said the government should expand the Fallu scheme and provide additional assistance to secure jobs.
He said: “The sector is struggling to survive – we are already seeing pubs in areas where there are additional restrictions, especially in Scotland.
“New measures, such as the 10pm curfew, will do more damage and will hurt city-centric pubs the most, especially in London.”
The recent brick-out-to-help-out project boosted the industry when Nichols said factories that were imposed on local locations had seen a 40-50 percent drop in business.
Nichols said: “Currently 900,000 people are still receiving the full furlough: the risk is that the furlough is finished in October and you need to start unnecessary discussions in the next few weeks.
‘In the fight for survival’
“We need a big discussion with the government about the necessary measures.
“There is no guarantee that this will be the only lockdown. We need a plan to get it in the next six months.
He called for an extension of the business rate holiday period and an increase in VAT exemption from 20 per cent to 5 per cent, which will end on January 12.
Emma McCarkarkin, chief executive of the British Beer and Pub Association, also called for a reduction in beer tariffs, which averaged around 54p.
The Treasury said: “We will continue to work in a creative and effective way to support jobs as we recover from the crisis.”
The coronavirus epidemic and the introduction of a lockdown plunged the economy into recession in March and April, with the economy shrinking by 20.4 percent.

Sanjay Raja, a UK economist at Deutsche Bank, said any further restrictions could push recovery beyond GDP.
“Strengthening restrictions is economically important. Strict social restrictions will depend on the recovery of the UK. This is because we expect the recent GDP growth to be short-lived, ”he said.
