UK put off decision on Covid restrictions for two weeks
LONDON , 27 Oct. - (ANA). - British Ministers will not make a decision on Covid-19 restrictions for two weeks until the impact of half-term on infections can be seen.
The measures under consideration include restricting household mixing indoors this winter, as data modelling suggests that working from home and mandatory mask wearing might not be enough to avoid an increase in hospital admissions.
The United Kingdom (UK) reported 263 deaths on Tuesday, a higher number than any day since 3 March at the end of the second wave, when 315 were reported. - (ANA) -
