Dr. Hilary Jones predicted that the UK could become a new country-a “hotbed” of the coronavirus. His words are quoted by RIA Novosti.
According to the doctor, soon Britain will face an extremely high incidence: perhaps 50 thousand SARS-Cov-2 infections per day will be recorded in the country. This will lead to the fact that the virus will continue to mutate rapidly. In this regard, Jones urged not to rely too much on vaccination programs for the population.
“Everyone says that vaccinations have helped, and this is true, there are fewer serious and fatal cases of the disease. And we would be in a great position if we were dealing only with the”alpha “mutation of the coronavirus, but now the”delta” variant is widespread in the country, which is much more contagious, ” the doctor explained.
According to the latest data, 27,334 cases of COVID-19 were detected in the UK. In the country, 64 percent of the adult population has been fully vaccinated.
