Top Scientists deliver stark warning about coronavirus
The UK could see 50,000 new coronavirus cases a day by mid-October without further restrictions, the government’s chief scientific adviser has warned.
Sir Patrick Vallance said that “would be expected to lead to about 200 deaths per day” a month after that.
Speaking at Downing Street alongside chief medical adviser, Professor Chris Whitty, Sir Patrick stressed the figures given were not a prediction, but added: “At the moment we think the epidemic is doubling roughly every seven days.
Professor Chris Whitty made clear that: if we do too little this virus will get out of control. But if we go too far we will do damage to the economy.
On Sunday, a further 3,899 daily cases and 18 deaths were reported in the UK.
Will the nation listen? Is the public following the rules? Should the community do more to help prevent the virus spreading?
