The Joint Biosecurity Centre has recommended the Covid-19 alert level for the UK be increased to Level 4, meaning transmission of the virus is “high or rising exponentially”, the UK’s chief medical officers have said.
This means transmission of the virus is “high or rising exponentially”.
The number of people being admitted to hospital with coronavirus in England is the highest since June as new infection rates across the UK triple in just three weeks.
It comes as a further 4,368 cases of coronavirus were lab-confirmed in the UK as of 9am on Monday, according to the latest Government figures.
This also means the seven day rolling average of new infections has risen from 1,339 on September 1 to 3,929 as of today.
