According to reports such as the Guardian, a British daily on the 19th local time, the number of COVID-19 cases in the UK on the 19th recorded 48,703.

The daily average of the number of confirmed cases is 44,145, and the weekly average is the highest in the world, the Guardian pointed out.

In the UK, the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases and deaths within 28 days stood at 223, the highest in seven months.

According to the BBC, the number of confirmed cases from July to October of this year also reached 3 million.

As the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 is soaring, the burden on the public health service that the UK is proud of is also increasing.

The number of patients waiting for hospital treatment due to other diseases and other diseases stood at an all-time high of 5.7 million, the Guardian reported.

There are many views who doubt whether the loosened quarantine measures have caused such a crisis.

The UK has eased restrictions on wearing some masks since July.

The limit on the number of meeting people has also disappeared.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said that while the coronavirus remains a risk factor, he wants Britain to remain “one of the freest societies” in Europe with very limited restrictions.

In fact, according to the results of a study by Imperial University in London, UK, the response that British people ‘no longer wear masks’ was higher than those of people in other Western European countries such as Germany and France.

It is pointed out that in a situation where the effectiveness of masks to prevent infection is evident, measures to mitigate the use of masks may be the cause of the recent resurgence.

The UK has launched the world’s first COVID-19 vaccine.

In the UK, the rate of receiving more than one dose of the vaccine is 86.0% and the completion rate of vaccination is 78.9%.

According to the British Medical Journal (BJM), it was found that even if the second vaccination was completed, the immune effect was significantly weakened after about 6 months.

The UK was the first in the world to vaccinate, and the longer it has passed, the less effective it may have been.

As it is said that a mutated virus called delta plus accounts for 8% of new confirmed cases, there are also views that it is the cause of the increase in the number of confirmed cases.

The public and experts are dissatisfied with the government’s passive response.

Matthew Taylor, president of the National Health Service Coalition, a British medical group, said: “It’s on the brink.

Without great luck, you could be in serious trouble within the next three months.

We need to introduce those additional measures into Plan B right now,” he warned.

Professor Christina Paisle of University College London, UK, said: “The number of cases is increasing and hospitalizations are steadily increasing.

There is no infection control in schools.

“The government should immediately move to Plan B and expand vaccination,” he said.
