Covid horror: WHO chief calls for return of masks as pandemic ‘nowhere near over’


Earlier this week, health minister Lord Kamall said that the Government was focussing on bringing the backlog down, but added: “If it gets to a point where it is affecting the backlog then clearly measures may well have to be introduced.”

Government statistics show that, in England, there has been a steady rise in cases since the end of May.

Accordingly, hospital admissions with those testing positive for coronavirus have increased. As of July 13, there were nearly 14,000 patients in hospital with the virus.

Unlike other nations, the UK has benefited from a high vaccination rate. More than 93 percent of people aged over 12 have had a first dose, and over 87 percent have had two doses – far higher than the 70 percent recommended by the WHO.
