Breaking: Uk Will be Under Complete Lockdown Till December

Boris Johnson has been warned by his scientific advisers that the UK is facing a second wave of coronavirus even deadlier than the first as they urge the Prime Minister to impose tougher lockdown rules. 

The Government’s Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) has presented the PM with projections which suggest the peak of the second wave will be lower than it was in the first wave. 

However, the peak is expected to last for longer, with high numbers of daily deaths likely to continue for months, resulting in a ‘lampshade’ second wave. 

A source told The Telegraph: ‘It’s going to be worse this time, more deaths.

SAGE has separately warned that it believes all of England will have to be put into the top tier of restrictions by mid-December, putting Christmas get-togethers at risk of being cancelled completely. 

Government experts believe daily deaths could remain in the hundreds for months, long beyond Christmas and potentially into March. 

The number of people in hospital with Covid-19 is currently just below 10,000. 

Health chiefs believe the daily total could rise to 500 within weeks, still significantly below the 1,000-plus recorded during the peak of the first wave, amid fears that the Government’s tier system is not enough to get infections back under control. 

A further 367 deaths were announced yesterday, the highest daily number since May, with the official UK death toll now at 43,365.
