Sky News published this video item, entitled “COVID-19: How many more Britons will die?” – below is their description.

As COVID cases surge across Europe, Ed Conway looks at how many more people could die in the UK if we are hit with a similar wave.

So far 167, 646 Britons have died in the pandemic – 16,163 of them since May.

Britain has high levels of vaccinations, especially among vulnerable groups.

Will that be enough to prevent a high number of deaths this winter?
