Coronavirus: New figures show UK faces ‘impossible balancing act’

The daily confirmed figures for coronavirus cases have shown a significant jump in the past two days.

On Sunday they rose by nearly 3,000 and then on Monday by almost exactly the same again – the highest single day increases since May.

It means the UK is now seeing four times as many cases on average as it was in mid July.

And with the impact of the return of schools still to come – not to mention the re-opening of universities next month – fears are growing that cases and then deaths could start spiralling.
