According to the Coronavirus pandemic data released by the British government on the 30th, there were 24,405 newly confirmed cases in the UK in a single day, and the cumulative number of confirmed cases was approaching 990,000; there were 274 new deaths, and the cumulative number of cases exceeded 46,000.
At present, various levels of pandemic prevention measures are adopted in various parts of the United Kingdom to respond to the second wave of pandemic.
The government has repeatedly stated that it will avoid adopting the national lockdown measures in the first wave of pandemic . The severity of the second wave of pandemic far exceeded expectations, and the implementation of a nationwide blockade may be inevitable.
The British Government’s Emergency Science Advisory Panel issued a report on the 30th and pointed out that the severity of the second wave of pandemic far exceeded expectations.
It was previously estimated that the number of new cases in the UK every day in October will be about 12,000 to 13,000, and the daily increase in the number of confirmed cases in the past two weeks will be more than 20,000. There are still many asymptomatic infections that have not been tested. The number of newly infected people may be between 40,000 and 70,000.
In the past week, the number of new patients in the UK may reach more than 200,000, and the number of people infected with Coronavirus pandemic in the second wave of pandemic was four times as many as expected.
The British government once estimated that in this winter, 85,000 people in the UK will die because of the Coronavirus. In the next one or two months, if the new coronavirus spreads according to the current infection rate, that is, between 1.1 and 1.3, the death cases in the next two months will greatly exceed the estimate.
A scientific consultant from the University of Warwick in the United Kingdom pointed out that the current three-level pandemic prevention system in England has not played a big role.
If the government does not take unified actions across the country, the UK’s infection rate will hardly fall below one. The fierce momentum of the second wave of the pandemic is difficult to contain.
The Mayor of London Sadiq Khan also called on the central government to take phased nationwide blockade measures as soon as possible, but received no response.
At present, London is in the second level of England’s three-level pandemic prevention warning, which is a higher risk.
London’s pandemic prevention risk level may be upgraded to the third level in the next two weeks. At that time, bars and other service establishments may be prohibited from operating.
