Even with sensible people running things in regions, it would be very tempting for them to seek to undercut restrictions in other areas. If you've got lots of employers saying they're about to go under, it's not that irrational, as someone who wants to be re-elected to think, hey, they can stay open. Heck, if the region next door has locked down, you'll probably get a bunch of them come to your area to spend money in your local businesses. And it's not like, if hospitalizations take off near you, that the NHS in other regions will refuse to take your sick.
