And in chaotic scenes harking back to the darkest days of the primary wave of Covid, hospitals in England have been urged to unlock each doable mattress forward of the anticipated spike in sufferers.

Boris Johnson promised the tier allocation could be primarily based on ‘widespread sense’, with the JBC – a Whitehall physique that decides the whack-a-mole technique – utilizing a set of 5 standards to determine which areas want the harshest restrictions.
