Health authorities in the UK have registered 4368 new corona cases in the last 24 hours, over 450 more than Sunday.
The number of infections has been increasing alarmingly recently and is now in line with the numbers from the beginning of May when the epidemic seemed just past its peak in the country.
Chris Whitty and Patrick Vallance, key government advisers, outlined the spectre of 50,000 new cases every day in mid-October if it continues.
According to them, this means that a month later, more than 200 patients a day will die from Covid-19.
The death toll now rose by eleven to 41,788. In total, nearly 400,000 Britons have currently contracted the dreaded virus.
In order to prevent further spread, measures are being tightened up in more and more places. Prime Minister Boris Johnson hopes to avoid another nationwide lockdown.
However, Health Secretary Matt Hancock said that decision might be the last resort. Four regions in Wales will be closed on Tuesday.
