Comments by Leicester City mayor, Peter Soulsby

  • Government has not yet defined the boundary of the city lockdown
  • It has been very difficult to get data out of the government

This just adds to the lack of comforting news from the UK in dealing with the outbreak in Leicester, but let's not forget that there is still a political agenda even when it comes to the coronavirus pandemic. Soulsby is the incumbent mayor and he is from the Labour party so take the "bad government" comments above with a pinch of salt in any case.
