Britain registers 892 more cases of coronavirus and 65 deaths

The British coronavirus outbreak is still on the rise, as officials registered 892 cases today, skyrocketing the average daily infection rate.

Ministry of Health employers say an average of 820 Britons are now affected daily by the life-threatening virus. The rate has risen since it dropped to a four-month low of 546 on July 8.

The numbers reinforce fears of a second wave in Britain, with Prime Minister Boris Johnson saying he was “deeply concerned” about the upsurge of affairs in the UK and other European countries that have eased tight lockdown measures. France warned today that it could lose control of Covid-19 “at any time”.

Officials today also announced another 65 coronavirus deaths, bringing the official number of casualties to 46,364. About 58 Britons now succumb to the life-threatening infection every day on average.

By comparison, 89 laboratory-confirmed deaths were recorded by Covid-19 yesterday, and 83 were registered last Wednesday.

The bottom line is that today, Aberdeen became the last city to shut down again when pubs, cafes and restaurants closed. Officials imposed severe new restrictions on 4.5 million people living in Greater Manchester and parts of Lancashire and Yorkshire last week to curb rising coronavirus rates.

In other developments today:

  • The massacre in Britain continued with hundreds of jobs cut at major street giants WH Smith and M & Co, meaning that the number of workers facing layoffs from the Covid crisis is now above 100,000;
  • One of the leading hair loss clinics in the UK reported an association between Covid-19 and hair loss after survivors complained that the disease left their locks in bushes three months after their battle;
  • Ministers declined the call to wear facial covers in schools when they reopen next month after pleas from unions to reconsider guidance;
  • Postponing quarantine measures at the border was a ‘serious mistake’ that allowed 10,000 infected people in the UK to accelerate virus spread, a key report by MPs warned.

ABERDEEN IS PUT AGAIN IN LOCKDOWN

Aberdeen was locked up again today because pubs, cafes and restaurants were closed and people were allowed to travel more than five miles from their homes.

Scottish Prime Minister Nicola Sturgeon said that 54 outbreaks have now been reported in the outbreak – double yesterday – and all catering establishments inside and outside should close today at 5pm.

She said the increase in the number of cases heightens fears that the Scottish government is “dealing with a major outbreak in Aberdeen, which may include some community transfer.” Residents were told not to enter each other’s houses.

It comes a day after the Queen and Prince Philip landed at Aberdeen Airport, where they were met by a driver and taken to the Balmoral estate, which is about an hour’s drive away. Their staff in Scotland have been quarantined for two weeks to minimize Covid risk, and the pair will remain there until early October.

The Aberdeen shutdown also comes just six days after parts of the North West of England were also placed under restrictions, with 4.5 million people in Manchester receiving £ 100 fines for breaking the rules.

Ministry of Health chiefs today announced that another 892 people have tested positive for the virus, bringing the moving seven-day average to 820.

By comparison, the rate was 802 yesterday – which was the first time it was 800 in more than a month. The price has been rising for more than two weeks amid growing fears of a resurgence.

Government statistics show that the official size of the UK outbreak is now 307,184. But the actual magnitude of the outbreak is estimated at millions, based on antibody test data.

The death data does not indicate how many Covid-19 patients have died in the past 24 hours – it is only the number of fatalities that have been reported and registered with the authorities.

And the figure does not always correspond to the updates of the home nations. Ministry of Health officials are working out a different time limit, which means that daily updates from Scotland and Northern Ireland are out of sync.

The count that NHS England announces every afternoon, taking into account only deaths in hospitals, does not match the DH figures because they work with a different admission system.

For example, some deaths announced by NHS England bosses will already have been counted by the Department of Health, which records fatalities “as soon as they are available.”

But the mortality curve is no longer fading as fast as it was, as the increasing seven-day average number of daily deaths has been since July 18 in the 1960s.

Infected patients can take several weeks to die, meaning that any spike in deaths will not be immediately apparent in government figures.

NHS England today declared 13 victims in hospitals across the country. Wales included two in all settings. No fatalities were registered in Scotland or Northern Ireland.

Separate figures – released yesterday – revealed that overall deaths in England and Wales are still below the numbers normally expected at this time of the year, based on an average of the past five years.

It’s like Aberdeen has been shut down again today as officials have announced that pubs, cafes and restaurants will close and people will be allowed to travel more than five miles from their home.

FRANCE CAN LOSE CONTROL OF COVID-19 AT ANY TIME

France could lose control of its coronavirus outbreak at any time, according to the country’s leading scientific body.

The Scientific Committee warned that a second wave was very likely in a report published Tuesday on the Ministry of Health website.

It said the situation was “under control, but precarious. At any time, we can end up in a scenario that is less under control. ‘

The warning came as authorities struggled with a sharp increase in new cases, which have seen more than 7,000 new infections in the past week, as well as an increase in the number of people receiving intensive care for the disease.

The global death toll of the coronavirus now exceeds 700,000.

Scottish Prime Minister Nicola Sturgeon ordered that all catering establishments inside and outside be closed today at 5:00 pm due to a cluster of 54 cases.

She said that the increase in cases heightens fears that Scotland is “dealing with a significant outbreak in Aberdeen, which may include some community transfer.” Residents were told not to enter each other’s houses.

It comes a day after the Queen and Prince Philip landed at Aberdeen Airport, where they were met by a driver and taken to the Balmoral estate, which is about an hour’s drive away.

Their staff in Scotland have been quarantined for two weeks to minimize Covid risk, and the pair will remain there until early October.

The Aberdeen shutdown also comes just six days after parts of the North West of England were also placed under restrictions, with 4.5 million people in Manchester receiving £ 100 fines for breaking the rules.

In other developments in Europe today, officials in France warned that the country could lose control of its coronavirus outbreak at any time.

The country’s top scientific body admitted that a second wave was very likely. It said the situation was “under control but uncertain”, adding, “We can enter a scenario that is less under control at any time.”

The warning came as authorities struggled with a surge in new cases, which have seen more than 7,000 new infections in the past week, as well as an increase in the number of people admitted to intensive care.
