Britain is being swamped by yet another Covid wave – how can we stop them coming? | Kit Yates


We are at the beginning of another wave of Covid – the third in six months. Last week they finally overtook the BA.2 version of Omicron responsible for the most recent wave that the UK experienced, in March and April. It’s far from certain that we will see the same level of infections or hospital admissions that we saw in the previous two Omicron waves. Portugal is coming down from a BA.5 wave in which hospitalisations reached 80% of their previous Omicron peak. Another positive is that we are starting from a lower baseline than the most recent wave.
