Preparing for a challenging winter aheadPreparing for a challenging winter ahead

A report from the Academy of Medical Sciences warns that the UK must prepare for a potential serious new wave of coronavirus infections this winter. The Academy calls for 'intense preparation' during July and August to reduce the risk of the NHS being overwhelmed, including:

  • Minimising transmission of coronavirus in the community, with a public information campaign, and tailored advice to high risk individuals and communities, and
  • Reorganising health and social care staff and facilities to maintain COVID-19-free zones, and ensure there is adequate PPE, testing and system-wide infection-control measures to minimise transmission in hospitals and care homes.
