Health experts have warned that people can get both flu and Covid-19 at the same time, and the consequences can be deadly.Speaking at a media briefing on this year’s flu vaccine, Public Health England’s medical director Professor Yvonne Doyle warned that those at high risk of flu are most at risk of Covid-19, too.A new study funded by PHE found people infected with flu and Covid-19 at the same time are almost twice as likely to die as those with Covid-19 alone.With flu and Covid-19 likely to circulate at the same time this winter, experts worry the viruses could have a significant impact on health service demand, as well as rates of illness and death.They are urging people eligible for a free flu vaccine to get one.

All You Need To Know About This Year's Flu Vaccine
The research, looking at cases between January and April this year, also found those with co-infection of the two viruses were more at risk of severe illness. Most cases of co-infection were in older people and just under half of them died.That said, the likelihood of a person getting both flu and Covid-19 seems low. Of 19,256 individuals tested for both influenza and coronavirus, 58 people were found to have co-infection.Overall, 43% of cases with both Covid-19 and flu died, compared to 27% of those who tested positive for coronavirus alone. One caveat of the study is that it used data from people who tested positive for flu and Covid-19 from January to April this year. Professor Jonathan Van-Tam, the deputy chief medical officer for the Department of Health and Social Care, said at that point, the vast majority of Covid-19 tests were not being done in the community, only in hospitalised patients. “There are multiple, plausible reasons why it’s a bad idea to have Covid-19 and flu at the same time,” he said. People who have both need to stay in hospital for longer, have a greater risk of dying, and studies in mice have also shown “poor outcomes”. Related...
This Is How Covid-19 Is Spreading In The UK Right Now
Prof Doyle and Prof Van-Tam urged those eligible for the free flu jab to get one. Letters will be sent out to people this week encouraging them to book an appointment, with extra measures in place to keep people safe.Dr Nikita Kanani, a London GP and NHS Medical director for primary care, said flu vaccines may also be offered in outdoor settings, such as car parks, alongside drive-through vaccine services. The UK has one of the highest rates of uptake for the flu vaccine and, last year, two thirds of those eligible for it received one.Its effectiveness was 42.7% last season, said Prof Doyle, noting that while it might not prevent all infections, it does “take the edge off” if you’ve had the vaccine and then come down with flu.In England, influenza kills an average of 11,000 people each year. Last year’s flu season was considered “medium impact”, with low levels circulating in the community early on in the season, yet an estimated 8,000 people still died from it. Related...
When Will We Be Able To Ditch Face Masks?
Prof Doyle said there is some evidence to suggest flu and Covid-19 might compete with each other, meaning those who test positive for flu are less likely to test positive for Covid-19. The PHE study found risk of testing positive for coronavirus was 68% lower among influenza positive cases.Some people might take this as a sign that you could hold out hope of getting flu and, fingers crossed, you won’t become ill with Covid-19 if you come into contact with someone who’s infected. But this heeds a strong warning from Prof Doyle, who said: “If you get both, you are in serious trouble.”This year’s flu vaccine will be offered to 30m people in total. The children’s flu programme has been extended to cover kids in the first year of secondary school, and the vaccine will also be offered to household contacts of those on the shielded patient list.Later in the season, people aged 50-64 years old will be offered one. As the symptoms can be very similar, people who experience signs of flu or Covid-19 should self-isolate. You should only request a Covid-19 test if you have a new, continuous cough; a high temperature; or loss of or change to sense of smell or taste.Related...

Keir Starmer will pledge to put patriotism and family policy at the heart of his “new leadership” as he pleads with former Labour voters to return to the party.In his first big speech since taking over from Jeremy Corbyn, he will repeatedly contrast his own style and vision with that of his predecessor, stressing he will head “a credible opposition” that will “take the job seriously” to regain the electorate’s trust.Wrapping up Labour’s online ‘Connect’ event that replaced its annual conference, Starmer will emphasise his record on protecting national security during his time as Director of Public Prosecutions.With a vow to create a Britain that is “the best country to grow up in and the best country to grow old in”, he will emphasise both childcare and social care as central to the party’s mission to create sustainable change.Starmer will unveil a new plan for a national strategy to close the education gap between rich and poor pupils, as highlighted through the coronavirus pandemic, enforced through an independent body like the Children’s Commissioner.The central message will be that Labour has changed under his leadership by offering a competent alternative to Boris Johnson’s Tories, particularly to all those voters in ‘Red Wall’ seats who abandoned the party and ensured its worst electoral defeat since 1935.“I ask you: take another look at Labour. We’re under new leadership. We love this country as you do,” he will say as he makes the speech in Doncaster, south Yorkshire, where Labour lost a heartland seat to the Tories in December.“Trust takes time. It starts with being a credible Opposition. With taking the job seriously. That’s what we will do.“So, to those people in Doncaster and Deeside, in Glasgow and Grimsby, in Stoke and in Stevenage to those who have turned away from Labour, I say this: we hear you.“My vision for Britain is simple: I want this to be the best country to grow up in and the best country to grow old in. A country in which we put family first.“A country that embodies the values I hold dear. Decency, fairness, opportunity, compassion and security. Security for our nation, our families and all of our communities.”That vision will include “properly-funded public services” and a “world-class education which unleashes everyone’s potential”.Starmer allies told HuffPost UK that the aim was to draw a line under the last decade of Labour under both Ed Miliband and Corbyn, shifting away from “niche” issues that obsessed party members but had no resonance with the mainstream British public.Climate change will dominate the speech, with the Labour leader calling for “a greener, cleaner and fairer society”, in which policies are judged by what they do “for the planet tomorrow”.He will also stress a rebalancing of the UK economy away from London and big cities, towards smaller towns like those which voted Brexit.Starmer will call for “an economy that doesn’t force people to move hundreds of miles from family and friends just to find a decent job..one that truly works for all regions and nations of this United Kingdom, with opportunity and security in every part of the country and at every stage of our lives.”On industrial policy and jobs, he will argue the way forward is “working hand-in-hand with businesses and trade unions” to create high-quality jobs.Unite general secretary Len McCluskey, is among those to have warned Sir Keir that he could “steer the ship on to the rocks” if he tried to ignore the Labour left.Related...

Lipomas are a collection of fat cells that come together to form a fatty lump under the skin.
These lumps of fat are benign and non-cancerous.
In the majority of cases, they are not painful or harmful.

Lipoma removal is generally considered to be a cosmetic procedure, therefore your GP might not offer you lipoma removal on the NHS.
However, we recommend all our patients visit their GP before a consultation with us to confirm that the lump is a lipoma and that it cannot be removed on the NHS.

The UK stands “at a critical point” in the Covid-19 pandemic but the data is “heading in the wrong direction”, Chris Whitty will warn at a snap press conference with top experts. The chief medical officer’s stark words follow Boris Johnson cautioning on Friday a second wave “is coming” and may hit the country as winter bites. Whitty will head a snap public briefing at Number 10 on the latest data on coronavirus alongside chief scientific officer, Patrick Vallance, at 11am on Monday, Downing Street said. On Friday, the “R” rate jumped again to between 1.1 and 1.4 and daily infection numbers peaked over 4,000 last week for the first time since May. Related...
Here's What The Coronavirus R Rate Means
The pair are expected to back Johnson and health secretary Matt Hancock’s attempts to persuade the public to stick to the new “rule of six” on social gatherings in order to avoid full lockdown. Whitty is expected to say: “The trend in UK is heading in the wrong direction and we are at a critical point in the pandemic.“We are looking at the data to see how to manage the spread of the virus ahead of a very challenging winter period.”Would you call the police on a neighbour who's failing to self-isolate?"Yes," says UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock, as he tells #Marr how £10,000 fines could be enforcedhttps://t.co/GCTX2iCqwlpic.twitter.com/PHE7eFOLUX— BBC Politics (@BBCPolitics) September 20, 2020Using charts and graphs to set out the latest figures, they will also present data on other countries in the grip of a second wave and how this could be replicated in the UK. Speaking on the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show on Sunday, Hancock said there was a danger the infection rate could “shoot through the roof”. It came as the government announced those who fail to self-isolate may face a hefty fine of £10,000. Hancock said anyone who saw their neighbours breaking the rules should tell the police, adding: “I am very worried about this second wave.“We have seen in other countries around Europe how it can absolutely shoot through the roof.”The health secretary also hinted a second national lockdown was possible. “The nation faces a tipping point.”He added: “We have a choice. Either everybody follows the rules – the rule of six and the need to self-isolate if you have a positive test or if you are contacted by NHS Test and Trace – or we will have to take more measures.”Labour leader Keir Starmer has said he will support the government should it impose a second lockdown, but blamed the government’s failure to get a grip of testing for the recent spike in cases.

Boris Johnson's Testing Fiasco Makes Second Lockdown 'More Likely', Says Keir Starmer
London Should Face Fresh Lockdown By Monday, Khan Says
The UK is facing the prospect of another national lockdown because of Boris Johnson’s “failure and incompetence”, Labour’s deputy leader Angela Rayner has said.Speaking at her party’s ‘virtual’ conference, Rayner called the prime minister a “Bullingdon Club blagger” who was always trying to blame others for his government’s failings.“Last Wednesday at Prime Minister’s Questions, I faced a prime minister who pretends he’s a man of the people but has shown his contempt for women and the working class.“As a single mum, he said my children would grow up ill-raised, ignorant and illegitimate. He only knows one approach – denying that problems exist and then blaming other people for his own incompetence.“We are facing a second spike (in Covid-19), further restrictions and the prospect of another national lockdown because of his failure and incompetence.”She continued: “Never has there been a prime minister more out of his depth and ill-equipped to the task than this Bullingdon Club blagger.“He lights up Downing Street green for Grenfell and then whips Tory MPs to block the Grenfell inquiry recommendations.“He claps for our carers when it suits him for a photo opportunity but he doesn’t even know what they earn and won’t pay them what they deserve.“He calls a Covid war cabinet to allow grouse shooting when the frontline staff can’t get the tests they need and people can’t say goodbye to their loved ones.“Yet it’s always somebody else’s fault – civil servants, the public health body they voted to create in the first place, or even the public for doing the right thing and trying to get a Covid test.”Earlier on Sunday Labour’s leader Keir Starmer said a second national lockdown is not inevitable but “more likely” because the government has “lost control” of testing. Speaking to Sky News’ Sophy Ridge, he said the prime minister should apologise for the lack of testing, adding that Labour would back a second national lockdown and supported the government’s new proposal to impose £10,000 fines for a failure to self-isolate. “There are a few people that are breaking the rules and something has to be done about that, but I have to say that I think that isn’t going to be a silver bullet that will deal with the problem we’re in,” he said.“We have rising infection rates. I think the whole country is concerned about that. “The testing regime is all over the place [...] because the government’s not effectively lost control of testing, it doesn’t necessarily know where the virus is.“If I was the prime minister, I would apologise for the fact that testing is all over the place and, instead of using the summer to prepare for the autumn, which is what we said should happen we’re in this position.“Just when we need testing to be at its very best, it’s near collapse.” Related...

Keir Starmer Out Of Self-Isolation After Child Tests Negative For Coronavirus
On a day in late March, Hesketh Benoit received a phone call from his friend, the reggae singer Delroy Washington. When Delroy told him he was calling from hospital, Hesketh asked him if it was possible he had coronavirus.He told me: “Oh no man, don’t worry about that. It’s not that. I’m OK. I’m just not feeling right,’” recalls Hesketh, 62, a retired lecturer. “He honestly did not think it was Covid at all.”But as the pair chatted, Hesketh noticed his friend was gasping a bit and sounded chesty. “He wasn’t coughing, but he was breathing deeper. So I told him I’d call him later when he’d got settled.“He asked me to bring him some fruit to the hospital such as mangoes, apples and pears and I promised him I would.”But just hours later, a shocked Hesketh received a telephone call – this time from the hospital, to say that his friend had passed away.“I was probably the last person he spoke to,” says Hesketh. “That was devastating, emotional and touching to know.” Delroy Washington died at the age of 68 after a brief illness that was confirmed to be coronavirus.“It was a real shocker,” admits Hesketh, who lives in Haringey, London, and has an active role in the community including youth work and being head coach for Haringey Basketball.But Delroy’s death wasn’t the only coronavirus death of someone he knew. And in the early months of the crisis, he became acutely aware that the virus seemed to be disproportionately attacking Black people.Just days after Delroy Washington’s death, Hesketh’s friend Douglas Williams, who was affectionately known as “Brother Dougie”, also died of coronavirus. He was in his late fifties.Hesketh told HuffPost UK that after losing a number of Black friends to coronavirus in quick succession early on in the pandemic, he knew something wasn’t right. So he started to keep count of the people he knew dying of coronavirus.That death tally now stands at 37. And 36 of them were Black.Devastatingly, Hesketh and his family have now been hit with further heartache as his brother Carlton, 67, died suddenly on Thursday evening. It is not yet known whether his death was Covid-related and a post mortem will be held next week.“I am so shocked as my brother Carlton passed so suddenly,” said Hesketh. “He had diabetes and had lost his leg to it a while ago, but he had been quite well and hadn’t been poorly leading up to his death. The figure of how many people he knows who have died of Covid is made even more shocking, Hesketh says, when you consider the number of friends and people from different diversities he knows and how involved he has been with a variety of communities over the years.“Some of them I met up with once a month, some I saw once a week – and some I saw every day.”Hesketh, a father to 28-year-old fraternal twins and a 33-year-old son, says one of the deaths that hit him hardest was a parent of one of his children’s friends.“The dad of a friend of my twins died of coronavirus,” Hesketh explained. “He was an African doctor and his face suddenly came up on the news early on in the pandemic as one of the doctors who had died.“I then heard the news from my children too and it hit us all hard in a big way. We used to chat at the school gates.”Thirty-seven people I know personally have died of Covid-19 – and 36 of them were Black. Some of them I met up with once a month, some I saw once a week – and some I saw every day.”Hesketh Benoit, 62Hesketh, who was a college lecturer for 38 years, then began losing more friends to coronavirus – and disturbingly, he realised those that were dying weren’t just older people with pre-existing health conditions, but younger people too.The one thing they all had in common was that they were Black – and Hesketh knew this couldn’t be a coincidence.“There were a couple of security guards I know who died of coronavirus; then people from the community and a few ex-students.“Around eight or nine of those who died were elders over the age of 80 who suffered from underlying health conditions,” said Hesketh. “But they should still not have died as a result of this virus. They were taken too early.“The penny started to drop very early on in the pandemic for me that all the people I knew who were dying of coronavirus were Black. “I remember thinking: ‘I don’t know any Caucasian people who’ve died of it.’ And I have lots of friends and know so many people from very diverse backgrounds. Being a lecturer for 38 years, most of the lecturing community was white and I did a lot of youth and community work with people from all backgrounds.”I remember thinking: ‘I don’t know any Caucasian people who’ve died of it.’ And I have lots of friends and know so many people from very diverse backgrounds."Hesketh BenoitThe youngest of Hesketh’s friends to die of coronavirus was 35, while the oldest were people in their 80s. Many of them were in their mid 40s to 60s. The majority of the deaths happened between March and June.Hesketh, who lectured sports, science and engineering and played basketball internationally, told HuffPost UK the faces of all those he has lost will stay etched in his brain. He is also angry at the lack of action from authorities.“I think the government was slow to act,” he said. “I know it must not be easy being in the government during such a crisis, but I feel their handling of many things around coronavirus has been a shambles.“The Black community and people from ethnic minorities have been disproportionately affected by this virus.“We need a full and thorough public inquiry into the reasons why and need answers. It is not enough to say people had pre-existing health conditions.“We need to look into why these inequalities exist. Some of it will be poverty, but we need to know why that exists in a first world country and affects some communities disproportionately.”Dr Chaand Nagpaul, chair of the council of the British Medical Association and a north London GP, described Hesketh’s story as “shocking and disturbing”.He called on the government to urgently investigate the disproportionate impact coronavirus was having on the Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) population in early April after realising high numbers of people from these backgrounds were affected. “I became concerned after realising that the first 10 doctors that died of coronavirus were from a BAME background,” he said. “We also knew that one-third of intensive care beds at the beginning of April were occupied by people from BAME populations.“But I also saw the impact personally as at my GP practice in north London, we began getting notification of coronavirus deaths every day – and they were all people from an Asian background.“These were all patients I knew and were people who did not have illnesses which suggested they would die.Nagpaul wanted to see the reason why BAME communities were adversely affected by coronavirus investigated – and also for them to be better protected against the virus.What every single BAME person in the nation wants to know is that the government has got their back and will prevent these disproportionate deaths happening again.”Dr Chaand NagpaulHe told HuffPost UK that three months on, he would have expected a clear action plan from Public Health England about people from BAME backgrounds will be protected – particularly now the virus is spreading again at a rapid rate.“What every single BAME person in the nation wants to know is that the government has got their back and will prevent these disproportionate deaths happening again,” he said.“It is our duty to protect people from a BAME origin who are being harder hit by this virus.”For Hesketh, his motivation for demanding a public inquiry into the issue is simple. “If there is another wave of coronavirus, I don’t want to see that disproportionality rearing its ugly head again and hitting Black people harder once again.“I don’t want to lose any more of my friends.”Related...

While there’s been a reduced amount of new dramas airing in the last few months thanks to the pandemic throwing the TV industry into turmoil, the arrival of autumn has brought with it the shows bosses have been saving up. One of the first to debut during this new season of telly is Us, which arrives on BBC One at the weekend.Described as a “rom-com in reverse”, it is perfect for those looking for something a little less intense than cop shows or physiological thrillers, but still want something that packs an emotional punch. Here’s everything we can tell you about it...Us is based on David Nicholls’ novelTo many people, David Nicholls is best known as the author behind, One Day –the smash hit novel that spawned a film of the same name starring Anne Hathaway. Us served as his follow-up novel, coming five years later in 2014. Like its predecessor, it proved to be hugely popular with readers and critics alike, with one review in the Independent describing it as “a perfect book”. It was also long-listed for the 2014 Man Booker Prize and David won the Specsavers UK Author of the Year award.So what is it about?Well, as David put it in a press introduction for the series, if One Day “was about the beginnings of a relationship – will they, won’t they get together? – Us asked’ ‘what comes next?’”.It follows the story of the Petersen family, who are rocked when wife Connie tells husband Douglas that she’s not sure she wants to be married to him any more. As he vows to prove to his wife that he is still the man she fell in love with and to repair his troubled relationship, Douglas insists that they go ahead with a planned family tour of Europe – originally intended as a holiday to mark their son Albie’s last summer before university. But will the pair be able to reconcile their relationship, or will the family have to come to terms with a life apart?The action is also intercut with flashbacks of Douglas and Connie’s love story and the early days of their relationship, revealing how they fell in love and how things have changed in the years that followed.Describing the emotion of the series, David says: “It’s about regret and loss and the spectre of loneliness but I hope we’ve made something funny and uplifting too, something emotional and affecting that will have viewers recognising themselves and those around them, as one of ‘Us’.”It is set in some incredible locationsMuch like how the stunning European locations became an important part of fellow BBC drama Killing Eve, Us will also showcase the beauty of the continent. The crew filmed last year in London, Amsterdam, Venice, Barcelona and Paris and David says the series is supposed to be a “love letter to Europe”. “I hope we’ve captured that on screen,” he adds. Tom Hollander and Saskia Reeves head up the castTom Hollander (The Night Manager, Baptiste, Gosford Park) plays Douglas, who is a scientist. Tom describes his character as “quite a grumpy dad” to son Albie, who gets on better with his mother, and Douglas lives with the idea that his wife Connie prefers their son to him. He is devastated when Connie tells him she is falling out of love with him, as he is a man who “doesn’t want to be left”, according to Tom.Saskia Reeves (Wallander, The Child In Time, Luther) plays Connie, who is preemptively experiencing empty nest syndrome, terrified of the gaping hole that only child Albie is going to leave when he heads to university. Saskia describes Connie as having “completely settled for a life that she never ultimately wanted” as she gave up her dreams of becoming an artist and “took refuge in Douglas’ absolute undying love for her” – a situation she begins to reassess when their family’s dynamic is about to change. Tom Taylor – best known for playing Gemma and Simon Foster’s son Tom in Doctor Foster – plays Albie, an artistic, musical, creative and complicated teenager, who is about to set out on the next chapter of his life. “He doesn’t particularly want to go on holiday with his parents and feels he has been dragged into it – so tries to ditch them,” Tom says. But Albie will go on a journey of his own as he deals with the situation between his mother and father. Gina Bramhill (Being Human, Black Mirror) and Iain De Caestecker (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Lip Service) appear as a young Connie and Douglas in flashback scenes, while Thaddea Graham (Curfew, The Letter For The King) appears as a character called Kat, and Sofie Gråbøl (The Killing, Gentleman Jack) plays Freja. Why should I watch it?While the premise of the story might initially seem quite downbeat, Tom Hollander promises it has a “particular humour to it, which is in David’s writing”, with Tom Taylor adding there is plenty of “light hearted comedy” in what he describes as “a really fun drama”. “It’s not a story without hope, it is a story about hope,” Tom Hollander adds. He also says the story will likely “speak to parents of a certain age, those who have children who might be about to fly the nest or go to college”. Gina also says it will likely make you feel “terribly nostalgic for a different time, pre-covid!” She noted: “All of those wonderful locations and the freedom we had – I hope an audience can be uplifted and transported; not only back to the 90s, but also to the not-so-distant past, to be able to escape and enjoy this story of two people’s love and loss and growth.”Watch the trailer When is it on?Us begins on Sunday at 9pm on BBC One, continuing each week.

Kamagra: the illegal viagra that is imposed in AustraliaIt costs less than a euro per pill if it is bought by boxes over the internet (it is also sold in a gelatin sachet), compared to the 20 euros per unit that its authorized competitor: Viagra is worth.It generates less digestive and metabolic problems.It affects blood pressure to a lesser extent and its stimulating effects in men are faster and longer-lasting.Kamagra vs ViagraKamagra is a staunch commercial enemy of Viagra.But it is not legal, but not entirely illegal in view of the ease with which it can be purchased online with little restriction.Simple telematic management and in 24 hours distributors based in London, Brussels or Berlin, distribute the pills to any Spanish address.Kamagra has not been recognized by the State Medicines Agency, therefore it is an illegal substance in Australia.Their trafficking is persecuted, although it is not part of the list of drugs that the United Nations identifies as prosecutable.India, the great factoryThis medicine, which is manufactured mainly in India and distributed throughout the world through different Central African countries that act as a bridge, is legal in half of Europe.
London Mayor Sadiq Khan has warned Boris Johnson that the capital needs fresh Covid restrictions as early as Monday if it is to avoid a big spike in the spread of the virus.Khan is also preparing to urge the public to work from home if they can do so, in a switch back to the message used by the government at the height of the lockdown.New modelling shown to the Mayor suggests that London is no longer two weeks behind hotspots like the north east and greater Manchester, but is instead “two or three days behind”, insiders told HuffPost UK.Related...
Here’s How Life Will Change Under Coronavirus Curfews
Khan is pushing for similar curbs, including 10pm curfews on pubs and a ban on mixing of households, in a desperate bid to impose a firebreak in the spread of Covid.A Mayoral source said: “It’s clear that cases in London are only moving in one direction, we are now just days behind hotspots in the North West and North East.“We can’t afford more delay. Introducing new measures now will help slow the spread of the virus and potentially prevent the need for a fuller lockdown like we saw in March, which could seriously damage the economy once again.”The ‘work from home’ message would be a big shift away from No.10′s own stress just a few weeks ago, when the PM urged workers to go to the office if they could.Related...

However, many in the civil service as well as big banks and other corporate firms in London have seen staff continue to work remotely.New restrictions, already in place in greater Manchester and some regions, were extended to Lancashire and the north East in recent days.Khan is worried about the rapidly changing situation in the city. Whereas data from a few days ago indicated London was two weeks behind hotspots in the north East and North West, new modelling indicates the city may now only be two or three days behind.The UK recorded 4,422 new daily cases on Saturday and 27 deaths, another sign that the pandemic was beginning to increase its momentum across the country.Friday was the first time the daily total of positive tests had exceeded 4,000 since 8 May.Johnson said on Friday that the UK is “now seeing a second wave” of Covid-19, adding: “It’s been inevitable we’d see it in this country.”He said he did not “want to go into bigger lockdown measures” but that tighter social distancing rules might be necessary.Within hours, Khan was already warning more urgency was needed. “I am of the firm view that we should not wait, as happened six months ago, for this virus to again spiral out of control before taking action,” he said.“The best thing for both public health and the economy is new restrictions imposed early, rather than a full lockdown when it’s too late – but the government must ensure there is a fully functioning testing system.”Professor Neil Ferguson - whose modelling led to the government ordering the national lockdown in March – said on Saturday that said a second lockdown might be needed “sooner rather than later”He warned the country is facing a “perfect storm” following the easing of controls over the summer.The UK introduced a new ‘Rule of Six’ restricting indoor and outdoor gatherings to six people, but it appears not to have had any impact on stemming the spread of the virus.Related...
The Rule Of Six: All Your Questions, Answered
The government is looking at a temporary two-week “circuit break”, with new controls across England in an attempt to break the chain of transmission and prevent a new spike in the disease.The move could see hospitality and leisure venues forced to close their doors again. Although the break has been proposed by some to coincide with the October half-term for schools, others suggest much greater urgency is needed.Labour deputy leader Angela Rayner called for the government to hold an emergency Cobra meeting to look afresh at the science and improve its public messaging so “people can do the right thing”.“If the government are able to do that, we will back them,” she told the BBC.Rayner also said it had been “shocking” to see how “monumentally” the government’s test and trace system had failed.On the eve of Labour’s online ‘Connect’ event that has replaced the annual conference, Keir Starmer told the Sunday Mirror that the PM had to act quickly to get infections under control so that “Christmas is not lost” for millions.“The PM isn’t up to the job. What people have seen for weeks and months is a pattern of refusing to acknowledge a problem exists, then doing a U-turn, and finally shifting the blame on to someone else,” he said.Related...

A mural of a Black man who died in police custody has been painted opposite a south London police station.Local residents gathered at Lewisham Gateway Project to furnish hoardings with the commemorative piece which was painted by acclaimed street artist Carleen De Sözer.The initiative was organised by anti-racism campaigners Adam Pugh and Sallie Foyeh who both live in the area.Kevin Clarke, 35, told officers “I can’t breathe” as officers placed him into two sets of handcuffs but was “ignored” and then lost consciousness as he was taken to an ambulance, an inquest into his death heard on Monday.He had paranoid schizophrenia and was living at the Jigsaw Project, a residential support service, up until his death on 9 March 2018.Deborah Coles, executive director at human rights charity INQUEST, said the mural is a “really beautiful way of talking about important social and racial justice issues”.“I think what they’re doing is really important; it’s about recognising a life lived but also showing people, through art, that Black people die at the hands of people in the UK. It’s important that debate continues and what a good way to continue it,” Coles told HuffPost UK.“You see Kevin at various stages of his life – from childhood to adulthood – and an inquest is going on about how he lost his life at the hands of police officers.”INQUEST has been supporting Clarke’s family during inquest at Southwark Coroners Court.“It’s a really beautiful way of talking about important social and racial justice issues – and it’s to the credit of everyone involved in this project that they’ve done this,” Coles added.“Especially at a time when the family are going through a heartbreaking and really emotionally difficult process of listening at an inquest to how Kevin died. So this is also for them.”Wendy Clarke, Kevin’s mother, was overwhelmed with emotion over the mural and said she’s speechless.″It means a lot to us, as a family, and the mural will bring about a sense of awareness. There’s too many deaths in police custody and not many people realise the pain and hurt this causes families. “I’m just grateful to everyone who’s been involved with painting this. I’m also happy that it’s right in front of the police station, so they can see it. It’s a beautiful painting – I don’t have words.”A Go Fund Me campaign which raised proceeds towards the mural described Clarke as an active member of the Lewisham community with aspirations to become a football coach. “Kevin was passionate about helping and supporting many young people in his local area, particularly through sport,” the page read.The move has been strongly opposed by mammoth housing development company Balfour Beatty, HuffPost UK understands.The organisation recently acquired Lewisham Gateway Project in a multimillion pound deal and is building luxury apartments therein.HuffPost UK has approached Balfour Beatty for comment.Clarke would have celebrated his 38th birthday next Sunday.The 35-year-old was in a mental health crisis when he was detained and handcuffed by the police officers in a school playing field.Pc Lee Pidgeon told the inquest that Clarke had begun to get “a bit fidgety” and the use of handcuffs to restrain him was appropriate as he was showing signs of acute behavioural disorder (ABD).Officers placed Clarke in two sets of handcuffs – allegedly due to his size – and in the footage he could be heard groaning, saying “I can’t breathe” and “I’m going to die”. Pc Pidgeon said he had not heard what Clarke said at the time but admitted that in the footage his speech “seems quite clear (and) comprehensible”.When asked by coroner Andrew Harris why Clarke was “ignored” by the officers in attendance, Pc Pidgeon replied “I cannot answer that, sir, I don’t know.”Black people are subject to 16% of use of force by police, despite accounting for just 3% of the population.Further data also shows that the proportion of deaths in police custody of people from Black and minority ethnic groups where restraint is a feature is over two times greater than in other deaths in custody.

Protestors at a rally opposing restrictions aimed at curbing the spread of coronavirus and against the idea of a vaccine clashed with police and were ordered to disperse or face arrest.The anti-vaccination and anti-lockdown demonstration took place at London’s Trafalgar Square on Saturday afternoon despite the government ban on all social gatherings of more than six people in a bid to tackle the rising Covid-19 cases.Metropolitan Police reported that those attending the event were “putting themselves and others at risk” and that some had been “hostile” and “violent” towards police officers who attempted to: “explain, engage and encourage them to leave.”“This, coupled with pockets of hostility and outbreaks of violence towards officers, means we will now be taking enforcement action to disperse those who remain in the area.Those who remain may get arrested.“It is important to remember that we are still in the middle of a global pandemic, and the changes have been introduced to help control the spread of the virus, keep everybody safe and save lives.“We encourage those in attendance to leave the area immediately.” Police are encouraging protesters in #TrafalgarSquare this afternoon to leave immediately. Officers will take enforcement action to disperse those who remain in the area. https://t.co/qGWE65Ai7m— MPS Events (@MetPoliceEvents) September 19, 2020 A University College Dublin professor told the anti-vax rally the coronavirus vaccine will “make people sick”.Professor Dolores Cahill told the crowd: “We want freedom, truth and love.“I know that vaccines make people sick, you should not trust the government, the doctors and the media;they are lying about the Covid-19 vaccine.“Vaccines have not been safety-tested, they tell you when you take a vaccine you’ll get a little bit of swelling, is that true? No.“You can get multiple sclerosis and allergies, when I talk to parents, there are 12 known diseases you can get.“If you’re a parent, auntie, grandparent, cousin or neighbour, we’re here to say the truth will come out.”Scuffles broke out between demonstrators and police. Metropolitan Police officers moved in on the protesters as they congregated near Nelson’s column.The protesters formed human blockades opposite the officers to stop them from making arrests. The ‘Resist And Act For Freedom’ rally saw scores of people gather holding banners and chanting “freedom”.Organisers sold t-shirts bearing 5G conspiracy theories and advocating the legalisation of cannabis as a range of speeches were made to the crowd.One protester held a banner calling for the government’s Sage scientific advisers to be sacked, while another’s declared Covid-19 to be a “hoax”.Addressing the crowd to huge cheers, organiser Kate Shemirani said: “We are the resistance.”Dozens of Metropolitan Police officers, including some on horseback, later attempted to break up the gathering in Trafalgar Square.Traffic was brought to a halt as protesters erected a blockade in a bid to prevent officers from making arrests. One protester hit a London taxi after the driver beeped in frustration. The protester then appeared to spit through the window at the driver.Another protester’s large dog escaped from its lead and ran around near the National Gallery.Police then moved in for a third time to try to shut down the rally protesters. Shortly after 4pm on Saturday, officers wearing riot gear closed in on the campaigners from both sides of The National Gallery.The protesters then formed a huge blockade of hundreds of people, before some began throwing bottles at the officers. Others sat down to block their path.One protester could be seen with a bloodied head which occurred during the scuffle. Related...

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has warned it is “increasingly likely” that additional lockdown measures will soon be needed in the capital to curb the spread of coronavirus. Speaking just hours after prime minister Boris Johnson warned that the UK is seeing a “second wave coming in”, Khan said London leaders were considering restrictions that have already been introduced in other parts of the country.“I am of the firm view that we should not wait, as happened six months ago, for this virus to again spiral out of control before taking action,” the mayor said. “The best thing for both public health and the economy is new restrictions imposed early, rather than a full lockdown when it’s too late – but the government must ensure there is a fully functioning testing system.” The warning comes amid a surge in coronavirus cases in the UK, with 4,322 new cases reported on Friday – the highest figure in more than four months. Official estimates by the government puts the R – or reproduction – rate of the virus between 1.1 and 1.4 in London, meaning every 10 people with Covid-19 are now likely to infect between 11 and 14 people. Experts believe the virus is growing by between 3% and 7% each day in the capital. Khan said he was “extremely concerned” by evidence he had seen on Friday “about the accelerating speed at which Covid-19 is now spreading here in London”.“This is made worse by the uncertainty caused by the lack of testing capacity in the capital,” he said. Urging Londoners to be careful over the weekend, he called on people to follow social distancing rules, wash their hands and wear a face covering in public.Related...
