People 'more likely to have a cold than Covid' right now – how to tell the difference


Overall, the UKHSA (United Kingdom Health Security Agency) says there has been a 61 percent increase in the number of COVID-19 outbreaks compared to the previous week.

Speaking to The Telegraph, chief medical advisor of the UKHSA, doctor Susan Hopkins, said: “This week’s data shows concerning further increases in COVID-19 cases and hospitalisation rates, which are now at their highest level in months.

“Outbreaks in hospitals and care homes are also on the rise.” Doctor Hopkins here is highlighting how many of the new cases are as a result of people catching the virus inside hospitals as well as in society.

When will the sixth wave peak?

It’s hard to say when this wave will peak. University College London’s Professor Karl Friston says the current wave could peak at the end of October or early November, and not peak again until March when spring will be near.
