    “At this point, the seasons are against us,” U.K. Chief Medical Officer Chris Whitty says the country faces a 6-month coronavirus problem. The U.K. government’s Chief Scientific Adviser Patrick Vallance said the rate of infections could reach around 50,000 by mid-October without curbs. England recorded 3,105 new cases on Sept. 15. Vallance said the warning “is not a prediction but it is a way of thinking about how quickly this can change.” “Cases are increasing, hospitalizations are following. Deaths unfortunately will follow that, and there’s the potential for this to move very fast,” Vallance said.
