On Wednesday, 1564 patients of the corona virus died in Britain, with the epidemic killing 84,767 people in the country so far. These 1564 people died within 28 days of being infected, the worst figure since the epidemic last year. 47,525 more infections have been confirmed in the country while in London since early December. The number of admitted patients has declined for the first time.
Meanwhile, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson warned that there is a considerable risk of acute pressure on intensive medical capacity in hospitals. In the liaison committee of the House of Commons, Johnson said that the situation in the National Health Service is ‘very, very difficult’ and the pressure on personnel is ‘very high’. He once again called on people to follow the lockdown rules.
