UK must act fast to stop cases



Around 4.5 million people could be told to self-isolate due to a surge in Coronavirus cases, according to a new report.

For the second day in a row, confirmed Covid-19 cases rose above 3,000 yesterday with the Government confirming that children will not be exempt from the “rule of six” restriction measures starting on Monday.

A Whitehall source told the Sunday Telegraph that millions of the people including those with underlying health conditions, the old and the overweight could be contacted after a “risk model’ was discussed at a virus meeting.

It comes as the Government sent an alert to care providers urging them to “take the necessary action to prevent and limit outbreaks” after an increase in infections.
