UK lowers Covid alert level to 3

Observer Report

The United Kingdom’s chief medical officers have agreed to lower the Covid alert level to 3, which means the epidemic is in general circulation, from 4, which means transmission is high or rising exponentially.

“Thanks to the efforts of the UK public in social distancing and the impact we are starting to see from the vaccination programme, case numbers, deaths and Covid hospital pressures have fallen consistently,” the UK’s four chief medical officers said in a joint statement.
