Chris Whitty fears Brits won’t follow new restrictions if needed

Chief Health Officer Chris Whitty fears Britons will not follow the new restrictions if needed.

And he is more concerned with the Delta variant – which propelled cases to a one-month high yesterday – than the tension in Africa.

Another 50,091 cases were reported yesterday, an increase of 13% in a week and the highest since October 21.

Mr Whitty, said: “My biggest worry right now is if we need to do something more muscular, whether it’s a new version now or at a later stage, will we be able to bring it to life? Is everyone coming along?”

And he told a meeting of councilors: “It’s easier to be confident about people’s reactions in the first place than after two years of their lives being interfered with.”

But he is confident he will maintain support as long as the public feels “we are completely upfront about all the data”.

Another 50,091 cases were reported yesterday, up 13% in a week and the highest since October 21. There were 160 more deaths. However, the number of patients infected with the virus in hospitals has dropped to 7,633 – a decrease of 2,000 since the beginning of November.

Almost a third of Britons already have a booster and 80% are doubles.
