Speaking on BBC Radio, Professor Peter Openshaw, a member of the New and Emerging Respiratory Virus Threats Advisory Group (Nervtag), said the number of cases and deaths from COVID-19 in the UK very alarming now. “It is unacceptable to have such a strong infection happening at the moment… I think hospitals in many parts of the country are really barely able to cope,” he said. When I talk to people on the front lines, I think that hospitals will not be able to bear it if the rate of infection continues to increase. Public health measures need to be taken immediately. There is no reason to delay.” According to him, taking immediate measures to “reduce the rate of infection” is the key to having “a wonderful family Christmas where we can all get back together”.

In the past week, the number of infections in the UK increased sharply, with 52,009 cases on October 21 alone, the highest in the past 3 months. Worryingly, in the UK appeared a sub-variant AY.4.2 of the Delta strain.
