Hospital frontline: NHS “could be overwhelmed” by surge in Covid cases – BBC News
Boris Johnson has told the House of Commons there is no alternative to the four-week lockdown in England.
Some Conservative MPs are strongly opposed to the measure, saying it’s not justified and will cause immense damage to the economy.
But the prime minister warned the NHS could be overwhelmed if no action was taken, with medical staff having to choose who to treat.
Liverpool has the highest number of Covid patients in hospital in the UK and the NHS there is under severe pressure.
