Highest number of UK corona deaths in more than six months

The number of corona deaths in Britain has reached the highest level in more than six months. Its about 223 deaths in one day. The last time a higher number was recorded on March 9, when 231 infected people succumbed.

Almost 50,000 new corona cases have been reported one day. A spokesman for British Prime Minister Boris Johnson expects a โ€œparticularly toughโ€ winter for care if the rise continues. According to the government, current measures are keeping the virus under control. A renewed introduction of corona restrictions, such as a mask duty and working from home advice, has not yet been discussed. But Johnson warned last month that such steps will be needed as healthcare becomes overloaded again.

Approximately 79 percent of citizens 12 years of age and older who qualify for vaccination are fully vaccinated.
