A general comment from Dr Jeremy Farrar on the current COVID-19 situation in the UK.

Dr Jeremy Farrar, Director of Wellcome, said:

“This is perhaps the hardest UK policy decision of the last 18 months.  With cases and transmission increasing in the UK, and the new Delta variant now dominant, it’s crucial we wait and follow the data over the coming two weeks.  The important question is whether rising cases are leading to an increase in severe illness and death.  We know there is a time lag of several weeks between people first catching the infection, getting ill, going to hospital & ICUs, and dying.  Which is why we need to wait until as close as possible to 21st June, so we have all the data we need to make the right decision.
