In the last 24 hours, 41,299 new infections and 217 deaths from covid-19 have been recorded in Great Britain. The health authorities report, yesterday’s bulletin reported 33,865 positive cases and 293 deaths.
The alarm: “Christmas could be problematic”
“Christmas could be problematic” in Britain, where there is an increase in Covid-19 cases. The British government consultant and British Deputy Head of Health, Jonathan Van-Tam, told the BBC, speaking of “potentially problematic winter months”. To avoid a new lockdown, according to Van-Tam it is necessary to show “caution during the winter months, but particularly in the next 2 months”. How we celebrate “Christmas also depends on how cautious we are,” he warned. The way the community behaves is therefore fundamental, but also “vaccination programs”. To find oneself “in calmer waters” it will be necessary to wait for “spring”, while now it is still “the time to run,” he said.
Stating that many in Great Britain behave as if the emergency was over, Van-Tam urged to be “careful, very careful. It’s not over yet and the vaccines, the boosters, are really important.” Speaking of vaccines, the expert is referring not only to the one against Sars-CoV-2, but also to the one against the flu which “has never been so important”. Finally, he noted, “we currently have very few restrictions in society and that means all other winter respiratory viruses will return.”
