Covid deaths hit 223 – highest since MARCH – amid fears of winter restrictions

COVID deaths hit 223 today – the highest since March.

The spike comes amid fears of fresh restrictions this winter, as infections topped 43,738.

It comes amid a frantic push to administer as many booster jabs as possible to avoid a fourth lockdown.

No 10 has hinted that masks, working from home, and Covid passports may need to be brought in this winter.

Ministers are increasingly worried about the number of new cases which is hurtling towards 50,000 a day.

Hospital admissions are also rising although only steadily, and currently remain below last month's levels.
