UK health officials concerned over latest COVID-19 surge

UK hospitals are reportedly being overwhelmed by the recent surge in COVID-19 cases, with health officials concerned there won’t be any reprieve felt for at least another 14 days.

It is being reported that government advisors are suggesting the current rate of infection could be as high as a 150,000 new cases being experienced every day in the UK, which is putting a huge amount of pressure on the NHS.

There are now more than 29,000 people in hospital beds in England due to COVID-19.

Health experts are hoping the rollout of coronavirus vaccinations will soon begin to ease the pressure.
