NHS Confederation - Government must think carefully about next steps as COVID deaths rise

Danny Mortimer, chief executive of the NHS Confederation, responded to the latest mortality figures published by the ONS 

“Any rise in the number of deaths involving COVID-19 is cause for concern, and with reports of rising hospitalisations as the variant first identified in India continues to spread, the Government must think extremely carefully about its next steps.

“If this increase continues, it must be ready to adjust or reverse the timetable for easing lockdown. Given the warnings on the increased transmissibility of the variant, it is also vital that the Government goes further to overcome financial barriers to self-isolation in our poorest communities.”
