COVID-19: Warning of Christmas surge of coronavirus

Englands Chief Medical Officer asked people to think carefully about socialising over Christmas, as cases surged past 78,000 on Wednesday 15 December.

Professor Chris Whitty said that daily COVID case records will be broken a lot over the next few weeks as the rates continue to go up.

And he also warned that these would translate into big numbers being treated in hospital in the coming weeks.
