ALL of England could face tough Tier 3 restrictions by Christmas as coronavirus cases continue to soar, scientists have warned.
The Government’s Sage advisory body has warned that by mid-December, virus rates all over the country will soar past the levels seen in areas already put into the “very high” category.
The latest government modelling overseen by Sir Patrick Vallance shows more than 25,000 people will be in hospital with Covid-19 by the end of November.
The revelation came as the UK recorded its highest daily coronavirus death toll since May, with a further 367 fatalities and another 22,885 cases confirmed.
The number of deaths is the highest daily figure since May 27, when 422 were reported.
