Covid cases rising

The COVID Diaries – 236 11th December

Reports are indicating that Covid-19 cases are rising in parts of England, including London. Scientists are asking people to rethink Christmas plans and ignore the easing of Covid rules to avoid more areas being placed under tighter restrictions. 

Over the Christmas period, three household “bubbles” can come together between 23 and 27 December, but experts are warning that just following the rules may not be enough, leading to a third wave of infections with just weeks to go until mass vaccinations protect society’s most vulnerable.
