60,000 Britons May Die Due to Possible Failure by NHS ‘to Cope’ With Upcoming COVID Challenges

In April, David Nicholson, former head of the UK’s National Health Service, warned of far-reaching consequences due to the backlog of medical care caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Britain’s National Health Service (NHS) may be “unable to cope” with a possible combination of seasonal viruses and COVID-19 this winter that may kill at least 60,000 people, a new report has warned.

The survey from the Academy of Medical Sciences suggested that flu and RSV (respiratory syncytial virus) hospital admissions and the death toll could be twice as high as compared to a “normal” year, something that may coincide with a surge in coronavirus infections.
