Huge Questions for UK Govt After Spike in Virus Cases | Business News

By PAN PYLAS`, Associated Press

LONDON (AP) — The British government faced huge questions Monday over its coronavirus testing system after a tripling in the number of daily positive cases over the weekend that was blamed on a technical glitch.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock is due to make a statement to lawmakers later Monday after the opposition Labour Party asked the government to explain why the cases were not tabulated when they should have been.

The latest problems to afflict the U.K.’s test and trace program emerged over the weekend when public health officials revealed that a total of 15,841 virus cases weren’t tabulated from Sept. 25 to Oct. 2. The government said the “technical issue” was discovered Friday night and has now been resolved.

The unreported cases were added to the government’s daily new infections total over the weekend, boosting Saturday’s number to 12,872 cases and Sunday’s to 22,961.

Why didn’t you go to the emergency room sooner?

Was this all staged for attention?

Were you really that upset if you were able to “pose up” for a photo?

Sept. 27 (UPI) — Experts are predicting a surge in COVID-19 cases in the fall and winter months as new cases rise while some areas continue to lift restrictions related to the pandemic.

Murray added that changes in behavior due to easing of coronavirus
