Authorities on Saturday expressed concern over the spread of a new mutated corona virus in the United Kingdom as the infection rate continues to rise across the country. The meteor rise has caused hospitals, ICUs and wards across the UK to be filled with the virus, which has already been extended due to an increase in patients.
News agency PTI quoted officials as saying that evidence of a new strain of Kovit-19 was on the rise in the country from London, the southeast and the east of the UK.
Field hospitals built in the early days of the epidemic but later infested are being reactivated, the news agency Reuters reported.
According to the UK director of the Royal College of Nursing, the UK is “in the eye of the storm”. The death toll has risen to more than 74,000 since 53,285 new Covid-19 cases and 613 deaths were reported in the UK on Friday.
The government has confirmed that infection rates are rising faster than expected in these areas where the new strain is spreading and that stronger measures are needed to bring the virus under control.
The variant of the corona virus, which is 70% more contagious, is spreading rapidly in the UK. Prime Minister Boris Johnson has previously said that mutated virus strain is not considered to be the most dangerous or the most serious disease.
