LMB joins the fight against COVID-19 - MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology 


 London today (Friday) declared a state of emergency following the spread of the corona virus, warning that hospitals are on the verge of collapse due to the load of inpatients. The announcement comes against the backdrop of record numbers of dead and infected people in the UK, where the corona mutation was first discovered, with the highest number since the outbreak being recorded today.

With the spread of the new and highly contagious strain of the virus across the country, Prime Minister Boris Johnson halted economic activity and brought about a faster spread of vaccines from any other country in Europe, in an attempt to put an end to the epidemic. "Hospitals are under more pressure than at any other time since the onset of the epidemic, and the rate of infection continues to rise at an alarming rate across the country," the prime minister announced.

Johnson further emphasized the dire situation in the hospitals. "National health services are under tremendous pressure, and we must work to protect them - both so that doctors and nurses can continue to save lives, and so that they can vaccinate as many people as possible as quickly as possible."

The death toll in the UK is the fifth highest in the world, approaching 80,000. In the last day, 1,325 citizens died within 28 days of receiving the positive test, shattering the previous record set in April.

At the same time, an additional 68,053 cases of infection were reported, another daily record, raising the number of diagnoses to close to three million, out of a population of about 67 million people across the UK.
