BBC News published this video item, entitled “UK chief scientists warn of 50,000 new infections every day without tougher restrictions – BBC News” – below is their description.
Without further action to limit the spread of Coronavirus there could be 50,000 new cases every day in the UK by mid-October, according to the government’s chief scientists. Sir Patrick Vallance and Professor Chris Whitty say all four UK nations are at tipping point and they stressed the importance of respecting the health guidelines at all times. Officials have recommended that the Covid alert level be raised to 4 — which means the transmission rate is high or rising exponentially. They called it a 6 month problem. The prime minister Boris Johnson is to make a statement to the House of Commons to outline new restrictions in England — which may include ordering pubs to close at 10pm. Downing Street says the UK’s four nations have agreed to adopt a united approach as far as possible.
