Team Udayavani, Dec 20, 2020, 7:00 PM IST
UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock has said the new mutant strain of coronavirus is “out of control”, adding that it is an “enormous challenge” to keep it under control.
“Cases have absolutely rocketed, so we’ve got a long way to go. I think it’ll be very difficult to keep it under control until the vaccine has rolled out,” he added.
According to HT, Hancock said he is “very worried” about the health service’s capacity to deal with the current crisis, saying there are currently 18,000 Covid-19 patients in hospitals, just below the peak seen during the first wave in March and April.
