Lancashire & # 39; will be placed under Covid curfew tomorrow & # 39;


Lancashire is said to be put under a coronavirus curfew tomorrow, according to reports, as Newcastle revelers spend one final night on the town before their own restrictions come into play.

The drinkers came to watering holes in the northeast tonight after Matt Hancock confirmed the area will experience a curfew in pubs and bars starting tomorrow at 10 p.m.

Around 9.2 million Britons have been subjected to stricter local lockdown restrictions due to a surge in coronavirus cases, but that number could soon surpass 10 million.

According to Sky News, new restrictions are expected to come into effect soon for Lancashire, with the exception of Blackpool, which are the same as those in the northeast.

The city of Preston as well as cities such as Blackburn, Burnley, Lancaster and Morecambe are expected to be included.

Lancashire as a county has a population of more than 1.2 million, with around 140,000 people living in Blackpool.

The Health Secretary confirmed that people in Newcastle and six other agencies are now banned from interacting indoors or in gardens with anyone outside their own household or with support bubbles, with Lancashire likely to face similar rules.

According to LancsLive, locals should also be told to only use buses and trains for important journeys such as work, school and health appointments.

It is not yet known why Blackpool is likely to be exempted from otherwise statewide restrictions.

Pubs, bars and restaurants in all affected areas of the northeast – Northumberland, North Tyneside, South Tyneside, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Gateshead, Sunderland and County Durham – are only allowed to offer table service.

The Gateshead Arms' Sean Southern told MailOnline the business impact of the new restrictions.

He said: "We used to be open until 12.30pm, then we reduced it to 11pm because of Covid and now we're told we have to close at 10pm.

“These hours are absolutely crucial to us and probably our busiest time for those who want to have a few drinks before going further or going home.

What are the new restrictions for the northeast?

Matt Hancock announced in the House of Commons that Northumberland, North Tyneside, South Tyneside, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Gateshead, Sunderland and County Durham will be subject to new restrictions from midnight to help curb the spread of the virus. The new restrictions are:

  • Residents are not allowed to come into contact with other people outside of their own household or support the bubble in private homes and gardens
  • Pubs, bars and other hospitality establishments can only operate table service
  • Leisure and entertainment options between 10 p.m. and 8 a.m.

It was also recommended to adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Not coming into contact with other people outside of your own household in other public places
  • Only to use public transport for essential purposes, e.g. B. to school or to work
  • Go on vacation only in your own household or support Bubble
  • Avoid attending amateur and semi-professional sporting events as a spectator

The health minister said they were necessary to stop the virus from spreading and prevent another lockdown.

“There are a couple of bars in the area that have closed in the past few weeks, so we have recently taken over both these customers and our regulars.

“Things seemed to be getting better, and then suddenly last night we were told that there were going to be big changes and that we didn't really have time to prepare.

"People forget that closing at 10 p.m. also affects employees who might want to pick up a few extra hours."

The seven agencies have around 2 million people, only three of whom – Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Sunderland and Gateshead – are officially on Public Health England's most up-to-date watch list. The council presidents argue they need tougher action across the region to prevent a full lockdown and save lives.

Announcing the drastic new measures in the House of Commons from midnight, Mr Hancock said, “I know the whole House knows that these decisions are having a real impact on families, businesses and local communities.

“I can tell all concerned that we do not make these decisions lightly. We agree with local councils that we must follow the data and act, and the data says we must act now to control the virus and keep people safe. I know the people of the northeast will come together to defeat this virus and we must defeat it. & # 39;

He added, “We have seen in terms of infection rates in parts of the Northeast. Sunderland, for example, now has an incidence rate of 103 positive cases per 100,000 population. In South Tyneside, Gateshead and Newcastle the numbers are all over 70. & # 39;

In the UK, there are currently around 9.2 million people in intervention areas, including parts of Greater Manchester, Leicester and Scotland. But neither Middlesbrough nor Hartlepool in the northeast, two other agencies officially designated as hotspots by Public Health England, have been affected by the tough new measures.

The announcement comes amid fears that thousands of students returning to university in the region could cause cases to increase even further. Around 40,000 students are expected to return to Newcastle University and nearly 20,000 to Durham University in the coming days.

The rising number of infections in London and Leeds has led to warnings that the cities could soon be heading in the same direction as the North East with additional restrictions. And in North Yorkshire, "full emergency mode" was declared after cases rose 167 percent in the first week of September.

But the increasing requests for swabs as children return to school and workers return to their desks have made what is known as the "world-leading" testing system incapable of handling them. Baroness Dido Harding announced today that the demand for Covid tests is up to four times the system capacity.

The Prime Minister today advocated that the British "save Christmas" by following his "rule of six" and warned that the lockdown will only be tightened if Britain does not "flatten the camel's hump". Ministers have been forced to fend off allegations that chief medical officer Chris Whitty is pushing for a two-week national lockdown.

However, leading experts have insisted that the current surge in Covid-19 cases is nowhere near as large as it was during the darkest days of the crisis in March and April. One told MailOnline: “We are nowhere near the peak. & # 39;

Coronavirus cases, hospital admissions and deaths are rising, government figures announced today. Another 3,395 Covid-19 infections and 21 deaths were recorded – numbers that have soared in a week. And 194 newly infected patients had to be hospitalized in England, a rate that has tripled in 14 days.

In other coronavirus developments today:

  • The test fiasco has hit almost every school in the UK. Up to 25,000 teachers in England have already been forced to stay home and self-isolate.
  • Testing by Tsar Dido Harding revealed that the UK's coronavirus testing system is in chaos and demand is four times greater than capacity.
  • Boris Johnson said members of the public should not report their neighbors for violating the "six point rule" unless they have large parties, which is in direct contradiction to the advice of his own home secretary.
  • Offices could close in two weeks if the rule of six coronavirus cases is not removed as Londoners are warned that the capital is facing a curfew to allay fears of a second wave.
  • Coronavirus cases could spike over 30 million today as India dominates the daily infection rate with 93,000 cases recorded daily.
  • England and Wales record 21 more coronavirus deaths and announce a further 3,395 Covid-19 cases.

Newcastle City Council's Mr Forbes told BBC Radio 4's Today program that his team had sent proposals to the Department of Health to close pubs and restaurants at 10 p.m. and to ban socializing outside their bubble.

He said, “We know from the persecution we are conducting that the three main areas we are watching the virus spreading right now are in pubs and bars, in people's homes … and in popular sports.

“In pubs and restaurants we asked for curfew at 10 p.m. or for all pubs and restaurants to close at 10 p.m. And we also asked for table service just to prevent people from congregating and standing around bar areas. It is much easier for people to maintain social distance when there is only seating.

"We have asked that people only have contact between households if they are in a social bubble and that people not contact people outside their own households or their own social bubble."

He said an exception to this rule is for extended family members who provide childcare. Mr Forbes said people need to understand that "if we don't get over it now, it will get out of hand".

"I think we should all be deeply concerned about the rapid rise in the number of coronavirus cases we've seen in the northeast over the past week," he said.

“And not just the rapid increase in numbers, but also the fact that the average age of those infected is increasing.

“Last week, 60 percent of the people tested were between 18 and 30 years old. This is now beginning to reach older age groups as well. We know that when it starts to hit the elderly, then you start getting hospitalizations and, unfortunately, mortality too.

"So we are now acting as a preventative measure to prevent the virus from spreading further and to ensure that we don't end up in a more restrictive lockdown here in the northeast instead."

London could be "weeks" away from further restrictions as the infection rate begins to double every two weeks. Redbridge in northeast London has the highest rate of coronavirus infections at 38 per 100,000. It is followed by Hounslow in the southwest with 34.6 per 100,000 and Barking and Dagenham also in the east with 31.5 per 100,000.

London Council chairman Cllr Peter John said he was "massively concerned" that authorities will be forced to impose further restrictions as cases "are one-way and are only accelerating". Kevin Fenton, PHE's director for London, has suggested that curfews could also be used in the capital.

The London boroughs have the power to order local closures. However, since people typically move between local authorities to work or study, it is not clear how this restriction would work.

A No10 spokesman told Sun: "Especially in London, no restrictions are currently planned. It is important that we urge people to remain vigilant and adhere to the rule of six.

"We will always check the transfer rate and whatever measures we consider necessary."

Leeds has been advised that the transfer has entered a "critical phase". Council Director General Tom Riordan said yesterday that they are in a "live situation" where cases are increasing. Dozens of regions in the UK, including Greater Manchester and Leicester, are already affected by local lockdowns.

North Yorkshire has been placed in 'full emergency mode', which means testing facilities have been redirected to areas of greatest need, nursing homes have been given extra support and the brakes have been applied to reopening day care services.

The North Yorkshire Local Resilience Forum, which includes emergency services, local authorities and the NHS, has identified Selby, Harrogate and parts of Scarborough and Craven as a matter of concern due to rising caseloads.

Richard Flinton, chair of the North Yorkshire Resilience Forum, has warned that there has been a "worrying spike" in some cases as he urged the entire county to "act now" to stop the virus from spreading.

Mr. Flinton said, “We thank everyone again for their many sacrifices. However, as we have seen nationally and globally, cases are on the rise again and the threat from the virus is a real and present one. & # 39;

“We know how quickly infection rates can change and we urge the entire county to respond with us now.

"Please show additional restraint and caution and take additional measures beyond what is required at national level so that we can try to avoid another lockdown here."

Government sources have told The Telegraph that Boris Johnson is desperately trying to address rising cases through a hospitality curfew. Downing Street officials insisted that all options were still on the table, despite warnings that it would be "devastating" to close pubs prematurely – as happened in Bolton.

The action comes amid warnings that schools could default to close in the coming weeks due to a massive lack of testing across the UK.

Dido Harding claims that the demand for tests is up to four times as high

Baroness Harding

Baroness Dido Harding (right) was grilled by MPs

The demand for Covid tests is up to four times the capacity of the system, Baroness Harding admitted today.

The Tory peer revealed the amazing discrepancy between the number of people who want tests and the ability to have them, as they claimed 27 percent had no symptoms.

Extraordinary. She said no one "expected" the "sizeable" surge in demand – although it was widely predicted – and accused SAGE of misunderstanding its estimates.

Lady Harding was dragged before MPs to explain the mess that has drawn thousands to be scrutinized.

She told the Science Committee that she didn't have exact numbers on how many people wanted tests. But she said phone calls and website visits indicated that there are "three to four times as many tests as we have available".

Lady Harding brazenly gave the money for the chaos, saying, "We have made our capacity plans based on SAGE modeling for what we should prepare for this fall."

Lady Harding confirmed the diagnostic test capacity is currently close to 243,000 a day – a figure the government hasn't released in over a week. Thousands of tests are being sent overseas for processing, she said.

She said the government is on track to increase capacity to 500,000 tests per day by the end of October – although that would cover all types of tests, not just whether people are currently suffering from coronavirus.

And she admitted that it won't be enough. "I'm sure we will need more as we go past the end of October," she said.

"Lockdown is the only thing we know works, to be honest," a government science adviser told ITV.

The dire prospect was raised amid fears that the disease is on the verge of spiraling out of control.

Although the number of cases has increased to nearly 4,000 a day, it has mostly been younger people who are less likely to be severely affected.

But now cases of Covid-19 among middle-aged people in England are on the rise and have increased over 90 percent in 14 days as the outbreak continues to worsen.

Public Health England (PHE) data shows 23.4 cases are now diagnosed for every 100,000 people between the ages of 40 and 49 – up from 12.4 at the end of August. And coronavirus infection rates nearly doubled in just a week for people in their fifties, rising from 10.9 to 20.

Boris Johnson faced MPs yesterday afternoon, telling the liaison committee that steps were needed to avoid a full national lockdown.

The Prime Minister told the committee: “I don't want a second national lockdown, I think that would be completely wrong for this country. We will do everything in our power to prevent this from happening.

“Can we afford it? I very much doubt the financial consequences will be anything but catastrophic, but we need to make sure we use the means we have planned to defeat the disease.

“When I see people saying and arguing against the rule of six that the government is restricting individual freedoms too much and so on, I understand that completely, I sympathize with it, but we have to, have to defeat this disease. & # 39;

Downing Street has not denied any reports that curfews could slow the spread of the coronavirus.

When asked about reports that a curfew might be imposed in London, a spokesman for Number 10 said, “We will continue to check the transmission rate.

& # 39; We introduced the rule of six to try to lower the transfer rate as it has been increasing lately.

"But as I said, we will continue to review this data and the scientific evidence."

Alarms, however, were triggered by early signs that hospital admissions are on the rise and that infections are becoming more common in the elderly.

The problems were exacerbated by the test system, which got into chaos after schools returned and showed high demand for children to be screened.

The Rhondda area in south Wales will be locked down after an increase in local coronavirus cases, the Welsh government said this afternoon.

Health Minister Vaughan Gething announced that the measures, which will be reviewed within two weeks, will take effect at 6 p.m. on Thursday.

With a population of around 240,000, Rhondda had a rolling 7-day case rate of 82.1 per 100,000 people.

As part of the measures, individuals are not permitted to enter or leave the Rhondda Council area without an appropriate apology.

People can only meet with members of their extended household outdoors, not indoors. All licensed premises must close at 11 p.m.

The “rule of six” imposed by Boris Johnson on Monday makes it illegal to hold large gatherings, although in Scotland and Wales children under the age of 12 do not need to be included in the figures.

Ministers have suggested following the example of Belgium, where an increase appears to have been approached with tight limits on gatherings and curfews.

A senior government official told ITV's Robert Peston that "there is no way we can wait for the death rate to rise before we act".

London's infection rate doubles every two weeks

The infection rate in London doubles every two weeks, warned the chairman of capital city councils.

Cllr Peter John told Times Radio he was "massively concerned" about further restrictions that would apply to the city in the coming weeks.

"Wir sehen derzeit in London, dass sich die Infektionsraten alle zwei Wochen verdoppeln", sagte er. "Es geht nur in eine Richtung und wird nur schneller."

Er warnte auch davor, dass die Testraten für London um ein Fünftel gesenkt worden seien, so dass die Behörden weniger in der Lage seien, aufkommende Infektionsspitzen zu stoppen.

Angesichts wachsender Bedenken könnte die Rückkehr von mehr als einer halben Million Studenten zu einem zusätzlichen Anstieg der Infektionen führen.

Ein No10-Sprecher sagte gegenüber Sun: „Speziell in London sind derzeit keine Einschränkungen geplant. Wichtig ist, dass wir die Menschen auffordern, wachsam zu bleiben und die Sechserregel einzuhalten.

"Wir werden die Übertragungsrate und alle Maßnahmen, die wir für erforderlich halten, immer überprüfen."

Regierungsdaten zeigen, dass die Zahl der Fälle in der Hauptstadt seit Ende Juli gestiegen ist, aber Ende August zu steigen begann.

Die meisten Fälle wurden bei den 25- bis 29-Jährigen verzeichnet, gefolgt von den 30- bis 34-Jährigen.

Sie fügten hinzu, dass die Regierung erneut prüfen werde, ob die „Sechserregel“ ausreichte, um die Situation in vierzehn Tagen zu kontrollieren – aber es gibt eine weit verbreitete Ansicht, dass Schulen nicht wieder geschlossen werden sollten.

According to reports, a senior science advisor said, “I think if we are to keep schools open we may need to seriously consider a variety of other measures to stop a big second wave.

"And we have to think about it now – what to start doing."

Der Gewerkschaftsführer Sir Keir Starmer war gestern gezwungen, die Fragen des Premierministers zu verpassen, weil es verspätet war, ein Coronavirus-Testergebnis für eines seiner Kinder zu erhalten, sagte sein Stellvertreter.

Angela Rayner, who stood in the mailing box for Sir Keir on Wednesday lunchtime, told Boris Johnson that she had received a message from "a man named Keir".

She told Commons: “Keir couldn't go to work and his children couldn't go to school today because his family had to wait for their coronavirus test results despite the Prime Minister's promise to get results within 24 hours.

"Keir has been able to do the right thing, isolate himself and work from home, but other people are not in that position – many of them are the very people who are getting us through this crisis."

Mr Johnson said he understood that a negative test had been returned for Sir Keir's child, adding, "I don't know why he's not here."

The Labor leader was advised to self-isolate Monday while awaiting the result of a test on a member of his household showing possible symptoms of Covid-19.

Less than half an hour before the PMQs began, Sir Keir said he was "very pleased and relieved that one of my children tested negative this morning".

On Tuesday it was decided that his deputy, Ms. Rayner, should take his place at Question Time.

The possibility of going tougher exists despite a major Tory backlash to the limitations of everyday life.

Justizminister Robert Buckland bestritt gestern, dass die "Sechserregel" Weihnachten effektiv absagen würde, nachdem eine Quelle in der Nähe des Erzbischofs von Canterbury Kritik an den sozialen Beschränkungen geübt hatte, die diese Woche auferlegt wurden, um die Ausbreitung des Coronavirus zu verhindern.

Speaking to BBC Radio 4's Today program, the Cabinet Secretary said: “Archbishop Justin (Welby) is making an important contribution to this debate and he is right to point out the enormous spiritual and social significance of Christmas.

“I don't think any of us in government wants to be Oliver Cromwell-esque – we want families to celebrate Christmas safely and happily, and we want our churches and other places of worship to join in the celebration. & # 39;

Mr Buckland added, "We are not going to cancel Christmas, but the 'rule of six' is clear and important and I think we have committed to and must adhere to it."

Gesundheitsminister Matt Hancock hat die wütenden Forderungen nach einer Befreiung kleiner Kinder von den Regeln in England zur Rettung von Weihnachten abgelehnt.

He was repeatedly pushed for the "unfair and inflexible" restrictions when making a statement in the House of Commons.

While Mr. Hancock insisted on understanding the "implications" of the rules, he said that "simplicity" was critical to their effectiveness.

Senior Conservatives have risen to urge the government to copy the Scottish and Welsh governments, which have stated that children under the age of 12 do not count towards the limits of gatherings.

Warum werden einige Bereiche gesperrt und andere nicht?

In Reaktion auf einen Anstieg der Infektionen werden lokale Gebiete gesperrt, wodurch das Leben der Menschen gefährdet wird.

Laut einem Sprecher von Public Health England gibt es keine spezifische Schwelle für die Infektionsrate, nach der eine lokale Sperrung ausgelöst wird, sondern eine Entscheidung der lokalen Behörden und der Regierung auf der Grundlage von Ratschlägen von Angehörigen der Gesundheitsberufe.

Die Fachleute beobachten Maßnahmen wie die Änderungsrate der Infektionsrate, die Anzahl der Fälle, die Nachfrage nach A & E und welche Bevölkerungsgruppe die meisten Infektionen aufweist, um zu beraten, wann und ob weitere Einschränkungen auferlegt werden sollten.

Der "nuancierte" und "maßgeschneiderte" Ansatz bedeutet, dass Beschränkungen in Regionen mit unterschiedlicher Anzahl von Fällen pro 100.000 wieder eingeführt werden.

Innenminister Priti Patel warnte am Dienstag, dass zwei Familien, die auf der Straße zusammenstoßen, gegen das neue Gesetz verstoßen würden.

She said that more than half a dozen people who stop chatting after accidentally meeting them would constitute a "mingling".

Lawyers asked if this was the case – but No. 10 offered assistance, saying, "You can expect the police to tell you to disperse."

Ms. Patel also said that she would report her own neighbors for any behavior she deemed "inappropriate" and at risk of spreading the virus.

The comments came after police complained that they had been left in the dark on how the tough restrictions could be enforced, without guidance and widespread public anger.

In a sign of increasing chaos, the government has stopped publishing daily capacity figures – the dates are now labeled "N / A". The exam of Tsarina Baroness Harding also faces questions. Ministers are calling for schools to be given "priority" and "quick" access to checks.

Although Health Secretary Matt Hancock previously boasted "Moonshot" plans to run 10 million tests a day, he is now rushing to create a "priority list".

When hospitals and nursing homes come first, however, the prospect of schools remaining in limbo increases. Teachers say 740 have already been forced to shut down or send children home because of so many having cold or cough symptoms.

Geoff Barton, general secretary of the Association of School and College Leaders, said school principals are required to order that the "bubble must stay home" if a student or teacher cannot get a test to prove they are negative.

"I think this is going to feel like a lockdown by default – it's going to be more frustrating for parents because there's no telling if it's going to happen," he told BBC Radio 4's Today program.

ASCL urged Mr. Johnson "to take on this situation personally to keep our schools and colleges open and to protect students and staff".

When asked if there was enough testing capacity, Mr. Johnson answered bluntly, “No, we don't.

"We don't have enough testing capacity now because in an ideal world I want to test absolutely anyone who wants a test right away."

He promised to do 500,000 tests a day by the end of October.

The most recent PHE data released on Friday clearly shows that cases in each age group are spiraling. People in their twenties - who are not as susceptible to the disease and likely to escape death or serious illness - are driving the surge with an infection rate of 46, which has doubled in the past three weeks

Public Health England (PHE) data shows 23.4 cases are now diagnosed for every 100,000 people between the ages of 40 and 49 - up from 12.4 at the end of August. And coronavirus infection rates nearly doubled in just a week for people in their fifties, rising from 10.9 to 20

Wann sollte ich einen Coronavirus-Test erhalten?

Menschen, die an Coronavirus-Symptomen leiden, sollten innerhalb von fünf Tagen nach Auftreten der Symptome einen Test erhalten, so der NHS.

Auf der Ratgeberseite heißt es, dass jeder, der an den Symptomen leidet – hohe Temperaturen, anhaltender Husten und Verlust seines Geschmacks- oder Geruchssinns -, so schnell wie möglich getestet werden muss.

"Wenn Sie Symptome haben, machen Sie so schnell wie möglich einen Test", sagten sie. "Sie müssen den Test in den ersten fünf Tagen nach Auftreten der Symptome durchführen lassen."

Inmitten des zunehmenden Test-Fiaskos in England – mit Menschen in Viren-Hotspots, die keinen Zugriff auf Tupfer haben – wurde eine Meldung veröffentlicht, dass diejenigen, die nicht getestet werden können, es in ein paar Stunden erneut versuchen sollten.

Wer sollte auf Coronavirus getestet werden?

Der NHS sagt, dass jeder, der Symptome des Coronavirus entwickelt, einen Test bekommen sollte. Diese sind:

  • eine hohe Temperatur
  • Neuer anhaltender Husten
  • Verlust des Geschmacks- und Geruchssinns

Sie fügen hinzu, dass eine ausgewählte Gruppe anderer Personen ebenfalls auf Tests zugreifen kann. Das sind Leute, die:

  • Lebe in England und wurde angewiesen, einen Test zu machen, bevor du zur Operation ins Krankenhaus kommst
  • Gefragt von ihrem Gemeinderat
  • Nehmen an einem Pilotprojekt der Regierung teil

Wer sollte keinen Coronavirus-Test bekommen?

Matt Hancock hat behauptet, dass bis zu jeder vierte Test an Personen vergeben wird, die nicht dazu berechtigt sind.

Er sagte, er habe Geschichten von ganzen Schulen gehört, die sich für sie beworben hatten, nachdem dort ein Fall von Coronavirus registriert worden war, und von Menschen, die sie bekamen, weil sie in den Urlaub fahren.

Dafür sei das Testsystem nicht ausgelegt, sagte er. und es bedeutet, dass Leute, die einen Test brauchen, keinen bekommen können.

But he urged people with no symptoms to stay away from testing centers – despite acknowledging the reasons they might want to find out if they had Covid-19.

"What happened is that the demand has only increased massively in the last few weeks," he told MPs.

Professor Andrew Hayward, one of the government's SAGE experts, said that at this time of year, even before the pandemic hit, around half a million people could be showing symptoms like coroanvirus every day.

That would be well over the current government claim of around 375,000 testing capacity – although they have never done so many in a single day.

Prof. Hayward, Director of the Institute for Epidemiology and Health at University College London, said: “The rationale for this is, of course, that we would expect demand and capacity to be right in the fall and winter as the number of people doing this must rise quickly develop symptoms that could increase Covid.

"Some of our research has shown that, at least in winter, around half a million people develop symptoms that are typical of Covid every day – and that in a winter when there was no Covid – as you can see that capacity needs must increase dramatically if we want to keep up. & # 39;

Hundreds of schools have been partially or completely closed due to proven and suspected coronavirus cases, creating fears of a domino effect that resulted in parents unable to go to work and empty offices returned.

According to figures, more than one in ten children was absent from class last Thursday as the growing number of students and staff waiting for tests could affect parents' confidence in their children's return to school.

Dies geschah, nachdem Lehrer vor dem Bildungsministerium protestiert hatten und argumentierten, dass der Mangel an Tests und die Unfähigkeit von Mitarbeitern, Schülern und Eltern, an die Spitze der Warteschlange zu gelangen, die Rückkehr der Schulen zur Normalität verhindern.

One told the i that they could not book a test for their daughter online or over the phone on Sunday even though they tried every hour.

Her efforts included driving to a local test center that turned out to be closed and then to Gatwick, where there were no queues, but she was turned away for not booking.

Die Öffentlichkeit war aufgefordert worden, im Zweifelsfall Tests durchzuführen. Überprüfungen per Post ergaben jedoch, dass 46 der 49 Virus-Hotspots – darunter Bolton, Bradford und Oldham – keine Tupfer zu bieten hatten.

Preston, einer der drei Bereiche Tests ergaben, dass sie erst im Januar verfügbar waren – und 22 Meilen entfernt.

It has been reported that Mr. Hancock is considering making GPs “gatekeepers” to the system.

However, this could put a massive strain on operations, with complaints that appointments are already extremely difficult to access in many areas.

Long queues were seen outside testing centres yesterday, involving many desperate people who had failed to get an online appointment but turned up anyway.

Lines formed in Southend – but in a sign of general chaos – other test centers such as Leeds were almost empty.

Dr. Patrick Roach, Secretary General of the NASUWT Teachers Union, has called on the government to give the education sector priority in assigning tests.

In a letter to the school minister, Dr. Roach said the union had heard from around 600 students who were told to self-isolate in Bury and the situation was "increasingly out of control".

"Teachers, support staff, and children and adolescents cannot access tests that show symptoms of Covid-19," he wrote.

"Employers have trouble dealing with the effects and consequences."

He added, "We have reports that schools are unable to cope with a situation that is getting increasingly out of control."

The founder of Oasis Community Learning, which is responsible for 31,500 children at 52 academies across England, said 1,200 students were sent home in the first six days of the new school year.

Steve Chalke wrote in The Sun, "The reason for this is that either students or teachers have symptoms and cannot return until they get a negative test result."

Concern about the government's seven "lighthouse laboratories" and their ability to process results is growing due to staff and equipment shortages.

One MP said her constituents in Twickenham, south-west London, had been told to travel to Aberdeen to book a test.

Munira Wilson, Lib Dem health spokesman, said: 'We were promised a world-beating test and trace system but what we have at the moment is an utter shambles.'

Mr Johnson has berated Keir Starmer for failing to see him at PMQs today after the Labor chief announced that one of his children had a negative coronavirus test.

The Labor leader said he was "pleased and relieved" to be out of self-isolation after waiting two days for the outcome.

However, he skipped the Commons showdown that lunchtime, with Deputy Angela Rayner entering.

She spoke the & # 39; Keir & # 39; at the shipping box and said he had to miss work because he didn't get the result of a test on time.

But Mr Johnson pointed out that Sir Keir was now out of quarantine. "I'm not sure why he's not here."

The prime minister defended the Shambolian testing regime despite warnings that delays meant that schools are on the verge of becoming "unsustainable".

"Eighty-nine percent of those who did personal tests got (results) the next day," Johnson said. "We are working very quickly to process any test requests we receive."

In an effort to explain the root causes of the problems, Mr Johnson said: "The British people are understandably responding to this system with a huge surge in demand."

He insisted that "it is important that everyone follow the instructions on when to get a test".

Ms. Rayner urged the Prime Minister to deliver tests and PPE to nursing homes before winter.

"The prime minister has put his trust in Operation Moonshot, but NHS testing for multiple areas of high infection is nowhere on planet Earth," she said.

She asked, "Can the Prime Minister confirm yes or no, do all nursing homes in this country have weekly tests?"

Mr. Johnson replied, "Yes, to the best of my knowledge, nursing homes in this country should … weekly tests for all staff and tests every 28 days for those in the nursing homes, the residents of the nursing homes."

The Prime Minister also complained that Labor was playing "from the sidelines" as the government tried to tackle "one of the most difficult dilemmas" any government has ever faced.

Gavin Williamson, who appeared before the Education Committee today, announced that he had met the government Test & Trace Czarina Baroness Harding this week to insist that schools must have a "quick" screening available.

Covid cases occur in middle-aged people

The most recent PHE data released on Friday clearly shows that cases in each age group are spiraling. People in their twenties - who are not as susceptible to the disease and likely to escape death or serious illness - are driving the surge with an infection rate of 46, which has doubled in the past three weeks

People in their twenties – who are not as susceptible to the disease and likely to escape death or serious illness – are driving the surge with an infection rate of 46, which has doubled in the past three weeks

Covid-19 cases are on the rise among middle-aged people in England and have risen over 90 percent in 14 days as the outbreak continues to rise, official figures show.

Public Health England (PHE) data shows 23.4 cases are now diagnosed for every 100,000 people between the ages of 40 and 49 – up from 12.4 at the end of August. And coronavirus infection rates nearly doubled in just a week for people in their fifties, rising from 10.9 to 20.

The most recent PHE data, released on Friday, clearly shows that cases are increasing in every age group. People in their twenties – who are not as susceptible to the disease and likely to escape death or serious illness – are driving the surge with an infection rate of 46 that has doubled in three weeks.

Fear of a second wave is growing as the number of Britons diagnosed with Covid-19 daily surpasses 3,000 for the first time since May. Ministers have also been terrified by the mounting outbreaks in Spain and France and rising hospital admissions across the continent.

Hospital admissions – another way of measuring the severity of the pandemic – have doubled in England in the past nine days. More than 150 newly infected patients required NHS treatment on Sunday, compared to a seven-day rolling average of 52 on the last day of August.

“We always knew that with children coming back to school there would be a situation where people would need more access to tests. That is why we ensured these test deliveries to every school in England. That's why we opened the ordering system this morning so schools can order new tests and get them straight from the NHS, ”he said.

Mr. Williamson said he had emphasized to Lady Harding that testing should be a "priority" for schools.

“Just this week I met with Baroness Harding of Test and Trace and the NHS to highlight some concerns the schools had about the turnaround and to make sure the teachers can and can be tested as soon as possible able to return to teaching at the earliest possible time. & # 39;

Mr. Williamson dodged questions about whether the government could guarantee test results for schools within 48 hours but added, “As you can imagine, I have met with Baroness Harding to keep the importance and priority we have To emphasize In order to improve all of our schools and educational institutions, we must always ensure that rapid tests are available. & # 39;

Committee chairman Robert Halfon later told BBC Radio 4's World at One that he had been advised that schools would be a priority under Mr. Hancock's new program.

"As far as I know, schools will be on the priority list," Halfon told the program.

Education Department sources said they had little control over the provision of schools, suggesting that it was a "problem in the laboratories". “We don't do any tests. We don't monitor the tests. It's a DHSC thing, ”a source said.

An ally of Mr Williamson told MailOnline they had doubts about whether schools were the bulk of the additional demand, citing 1.6 million children returned in June and July and "we didn't see any of it".

The ally added, "There is definitely frustration."

Ministers first faced a crisis over testing early on in the first wave of Covid when a campaign by the Mail led to Mr Hancock vowing to deliver 100,000 tests a day.

That pledge was later raised to 200,000, then 500,000 by the end of October and now four million by next February under the ambitious 'Operation Moonshot'.

However, the system has been thrown back into chaos in recent days because demand for tests has massively increased, overwhelming laboratories.

The surge has resulted from a rise in daily cases, the return of schools, the rolling-out of regular swabs to care homes and an increase in outbreaks.

There were also rumors of logistical problems in laboratories.

As a result, there has been a deluge of complaints that people cannot access tests locally or that they have to wait too long to find out if they are positive or negative. Schools have been closed while teachers wait for results on sick pupils.

NHS leaders warn of a crisis in hospitals, with medics forced to stay away from work and operations cancelled.

Today's numbers showed that 221,192 tests including antibody and surveillance screening had been carried out in the UK in the past 24 hours.

That was a decrease from 227,075 yesterday, 231,969 on Monday and 250,839 on Sunday.

The last time it was lower than September 9, when only 209,609 were performed.

However, the government has not released a figure for total capacity since September 10 when it was claimed to be 374,917.

The Ministry of Health has refused to reveal how many people are trying to get swabs.

The number of people actually tested has increased 23 percent since late August, while capacity has increased 12 percent – although this is not currently known.

Sodexo, which operates the centers, has posted job advertisements for employees on the drive-and-walk-in sites as the UK prepares for a rising number of cases as the number of infections rises in people of all ages in England.

Labor MPs have called the test fiasco a "farce" and "unacceptable", while scholars admit they are seriously concerned that the government has not prepared for what they have known for months about what will eventually happen.

Professor Alan McNally, a geneticist at the University of Birmingham who helped set up a government laboratory in Milton Keynes, told BBC Breakfast yesterday that there are "clearly underlying issues that no one wants to tell us about".

He said, "I think there is an increase in demand (and) I think our reported capacity is very different from the actual number of tests that can be done in any given day."

Dr. Joshua Moon of the University of Sussex Business School added, “One of the deeper problems is why we see an acute shortage when the total number of tests per day is currently two-thirds of the testing capacity required by the government.

“I am particularly concerned about why the claimed capacity was so much higher than it actually was.

"Without a proper understanding of system capacity, a fundamental weakness is the ability to plan for the future."

In a round of radio interviews this morning, J.Justice Secretary Robert Buckland said testing capacity was "ramped up" to meet demand. He said Mr. Hancock would present the "priority list" "in the next few days".

Speaking to Sky News, Mr Buckland said, “I don't shy away from the current edition, but I try to explain that we have accepted the scale of the challenge instead of sitting back and pretending everything is fine. We are expanding the test centers, increasing the laboratory capacity and putting new laboratories into operation so that we can achieve this rapid processing. & # 39;

He added: “The fact that the government kept talking about the dangers of a second wave, the Prime Minister, all of us, at all times was absolutely focused on the dangers of the second wave – we saw what was happening in France.

“We absolutely believe that if we are to balance the restoration of the economy and schooling for the children in the fall, we all have a special responsibility to follow all of these guidelines – do everything possible to combat this virus . & # 39;

The test meltdown has occurred in the context of a surge in coronavirus cases, with fears the situation is on the verge of spiraling out of control again.

Brits could face an even tougher lockdown within two weeks if the rule of six doesn't eliminate coronavirus cases, it was claimed today.

Ministers and government officials insist that despite a wave of criticism, they are ready to take more draconian steps to stop the spread.

Options on the table can range from curfews to pubs closing – although it is clear that schools will remain open.
