UK anticipates new rise in coronavirus hospitalizations

The United Kingdom anticipates a new rise in hospital admissions due to coronavirus covid-19as indicated this Sunday by the CEO of the British Health Security Agency, Jenny Harries.

In statements made today to the BBC, the expert pointed out that “what is seen now (in this country) is mostly a rise of BA.4 and BA.5 omicron variantswhich are really driving this current wave (of cases).”

“It doesn’t look like the wave is over yet, so we anticipate that hospital admission cases will increase. And it is quite likely that they will surpass those of the previous wave of (the variant) BA.2″Harries commented, while admitting that “the general impact” this will have in the future is unknown.

That prediction is “concerning,” Harries noted, “because it affects the ability (of health services) to treat other diseases (as well as coronavirus cases).”

The CEO of the aforementioned public body recommended that citizens “continue with their lives normally, but in that cautious way”, encouraging them to “wash their hands regularly, maintain physical distance where possible and cover their faces with masks in closed and poorly ventilated places.
