Boris Johnson has warned Britons that the “only way” to avoid a new national lockdown is to follow the latest coronavirus rules. The prime minister, flanked by his chief medical and scientific advisers for the 100th coronavirus briefing from Downing Street since the start of the pandemic, said the UK faced a “critical moment” in the fight against COVID-19. England’s chief medical officer Professor Chris Whitty said there had been a “significant uptick” in the number of coronavirus patients in intensive care in northeast England, northwest England and London. “The direction of travel for both hospitals and intensive care is going in the wrong direction, particularly in the areas that have seen rapid increases in cases,” Prof Whitty said.Sky News YouTube Channel
