1. Antibody levels fall 'quite rapidly'

Immunity against coronavirus may only last a few months after infection, according to researchers at Imperial College London. They say the number of people testing positive for antibodies fell by around a quarter between June and September, with the biggest drop in those over 65. They're warning everyone to adhere to guidance on hygiene, social distancing and so on, even if they've already had the virus. The researchers say their findings don't scupper hopes of a vaccine, which may prove more effective than a real infection. Read more on the hunt for a vaccine.

2. North 'needs road map out of lockdown'

Fifty-four Conservative MPs have written to Boris Johnson warning him he cannot leave people under tier three restrictions in northern England "with no end in sight". They want to see an exit strategy from the PM, and a Northern Economic Recovery Plan to guarantee investment in job creation and big infrastructure projects. Warrington is the latest area to enter the highest level of restrictions - see what that means and what support it brings. There's also a warning today that Northern schools are facing the greatest disruption during this time.

3. Covid 'has thrived on discrimination'

A report commissioned by Labour and led by social justice campaigner Lady Lawrence has blamed decades of structural discrimination for the disproportionate impact coronavirus has had on black, Asian and minority ethnic communities.

She's made 19 recommendations for ministers, but a government spokesman said it was important not to automatically assume disparities were "evidence of discrimination or unfair treatment".

4. DIY fireworks warning

Many public Bonfire Night and Diwali events have been cancelled this year due to Covid, and doctors are warning people against attempting their own firework displays at home instead. Plastic surgeons fear there will be a big increase in injuries, especially to the eyes and hands. They say the potential risk is too high and could put further pressure on the already stretched NHS.

Five things you need to know about the coronavirus pandemic this Monday morning. We'll have another update for you at 18:00 GMT. 1. 'No alternative' to England's second lockdownBoris Johnson will tell MPs later that coronavirus deaths could be twice as high over the winter as they were in the spring unless he - and the whole country - acts now. He'll insist it was "right to try every possible option" at a regional level first, but nationwide action is now non-negotiable. Despite criticising the time it's taken to get to this point, Labour MPs are expected to vote in favour of the lockdown on Wednesday.
