According to the Office for National Statistics (ONS) infections across England have doubled despite localised lockdowns.
In the week to 1 October the ONS said infections have surged by an estimated 17,200 each day in private households, or 120,000 a week, which is the equivalent of o.41% of the population.
Compared to the previous week of 18 to 24 September, this is a significant rise from 116,000, or 0.21% of the population.
In recent weeks coronavirus cases have “increased rapidly in recent weeks,” the ONS warned.
In a grim warning he warned “we are back to choices faced in early March,” just before the UK went into a national lockdown and Brits were told to “stay at home.”
Health chiefs and Dr’s have warned that hospitals in the North could run out of coronavirus beds within a week.
Hospital admissions have spike in parts of England which is becoming “very serious” as hospitals are nearing maximum capacity and face being “overwhelmed.”
“If we do not come together and take effective precautions, Covid will continue its explosion across the country; a devastating consequence of which could be the implosion of our NHS this winter.
