Coronavirus latest news LIVE: Brits warned over possible fourth Covid wave, as Pfizer tells EU not to block export

PROFESSOR Andrew Hayward said “another wave” of coronavirus cases was possible in the UK but its consequences would be less due to high levels of vaccination.

Appearing on Times Radio he was asked if a “fourth wave” of infections could be possible if “mistakes” are made during the easing of lockdown measures.

Prof Hayward, of University College London (UCL), said: “I think another wave is possible, likely even.

“I guess the difference is that another wave will cause substantially fewer deaths and hospitalisations because of high levels of vaccination across the sorts of people who would have ended up in hospital or unfortunately dying if they haven’t been vaccinated.

“So the consequences of another wave are less. I think the challenge is of course we don’t know exactly how much less.”
