UK Covid deaths soar by 30% in days as fears of new lockdown explode

CORONAVIRUS deaths in the UK have leapt by 30 percent in a week, as a fourth lockdown is rumoured to curb a spike in hospitalisations.

Coronavirus in numbers: UK cases rise by 29,547

On Saturday September 11, the UK recorded another 29,547 cases and 156 deaths within 28 says of a positive Covid test. The figures represent a 30 percent increase in fatalities from Saturday September 4, where 37,179 cases and 120 deaths were recorded.

In the week from September 4 to September 11, the UK recorded 1,103 deaths from Covid.

Hospitalisations have also increased, with figures from September 8 indicating there are currently 8,098 Covid patients in hospital.

While deaths and hospitalisations are rising, they are still much lower than they were in winter.

However, Boris Johnson is set to unveil the introduction of Covid jab boosters next week to avoid another lockdown.

The Prime Minister will announce his Covid Winter Plan for England on Tuesday after the Joint Committee on Vaccinations and Immunisation (JCVI) announce their findings on who should receive booster jabs.

A Government source told the BBC the Covid Winter Plan would emphasise how society planned to continue “living with” the virus throughout the winter and promote Covid and flu jabs.

The Times reported mandatory face coverings and working from home will be brought back in if there is a winter surge in infections.

As of writing, 89 percent of the population over the age of 16 have received a first dose of a coronavirus vaccine, while almost 80.8 percent have had both doses.
