  • The health secretary, Matt Hancock, has warned that flexing locked down rules could be fatal, urging everyone to adhere to restrictions aimed at bringing coronavirus infections under control.

  • As hospitals continue to be under intense pressure, there is concern about public compliance with the rules the labor leader secure, Starmer says.

  • The current ones may not be tough enough.

  • Our first report is from our political correspondent, Ian Watson.

  • Central London, on a Sunday Shops usually open now shuttered streets eerily quiet.

  • Government ministers say the early signs and more people are complying with this lock down in the last one in England in November.

  • But the data also shows that in some parts of the country more people are on the move than during the first lock down in March.

  • So the government is making its message even more stark.

  • Careless actions cost lives.

  • The government rules only are one part of this.

  • What really matters is what every single person does, because that's how the virus spreads.

  • We could all do something to help, which is to stay at home, because every every time you try to flex the rules, that could be fatal.

  • Yeah, okay, we're gonna go all over on 3123 So is this the consequence of flexing?

  • The rules of scenes in University College Hospital in London show the huge pressure the NHS is under battling a new variant of the virus, and scientists to advise the government say that what may be needed isn't simply more compliance of more restrictions.

  • Whether the current restrictions are enough, I think it remains to be seen it will be a week or two before it becomes clear that they may be sufficient.

  • But we have toe be very vigilant, and if there's any sign that they're not, then we're gonna have to be even strict.

  • I'm afraid the view from Downing Street is that the current measures of pretty harsh, but they'd much rather encourage people to follow the rules rather than imposed new restrictions.

  • The Senate, in any case, that auctions are quite limited.

  • But the path of this pandemic has forced politicians to change course before.

  • On the man who wants to occupy number 10.

  • Downing Street says that the current restrictions may have to be tightened.

  • They may not be tough enough, but in a sense I think the most important thing is for people to get that message about.

  • Stay at home.

  • The Labor leader says he now wants to summon the spirit of the first lock down in March.

  • Parliament agreed, then to close some things which remain open now.

  • So what would tougher restrictions look like?

  • Well, I think there's a case for looking at nursery schools.

  • We're talking to the scientists about it, But I think quite a lot of people are surprised that primary schools are closed and that nurseries R E I think they probably should be closed tonight at Westminster Streets Eircom.

  • But activity in government is frantic.

  • In the coming days, the medics and scientists, not just the politicians, will be telling us that following the rules will save lives in Watson.

  • BBC News, one of the highest infection areas infection areas for infection rates in the country, is in sorry where every hospital mortuary is now full of Almost 200 bodies are being stored in a temporary morgue.

  • Other local authorities have told the BBC they expect open similar facilities soon.

  • Our home editor, Mark Eastern and cameramen James Anderson were given access to the emergency sorry sight located at a former military hospital.

  • This is the cold conclusion of a pandemic out of control.

  • An emergency body storage facility has been assembled in woodland in Surrey, with hospital mortuaries almost overflowing.

  • The county's dead are brought here.

  • 20 more body bags unloaded today to respect the dignity and sensitivities of the dead, and their families were not showing the bodies.

  • But I can tell you that in this fridge there are around 50 body bags among 170 bodies currently stored here.

  • These racks are expected to before in just a few days.

  • Around half the body bags stored here are marked co vid positive.

  • Sorry Now has one of the highest infection rates in the country.

  • The numbers have increased dramatically and rapidly over the last 2.5 weeks, you know, and that is causing us some concern on.

  • But at present, there is no sign of that actually diminishing either of a message from from a guidance and from government is really clear.

  • And I think we should be doing our utmost to to uphold that on this facility is sort of testament of where I think we're actually failing to do that at present, fire and police officers have been drafted in to help some brought back from retirement.

  • Until recently, Kirsty was a detective on Surrey's murder squad.

  • It has been a dreadful year for everyone.

  • However, working here, I can see that the numbers are increasing, not decreasing on.

  • I would hate for the sake of people staying indoors rather than going out meeting people that their loved ones or they themselves were to end up here.

  • That's exactly what we don't want.

  • Sorry is struggling to cope with a raging pandemic that shows little sign of abating.

  • Health officials worry the current restrictions are simply not enough to turn the tide.

  • This lock down doesn't look or feel like the one last spring.

  • Some are urging the government to introduce a curfew, but the prime minister's understood to regard.

  • That idea is unworkable on un British, just asking people whether they think the public's taking this lock down seriously enough.

  • I think there are shops open that aren't essential on also, previously you couldn't have cleaners in your house and other tradesmen, which you are now, so I don't think this lock down is a strict.

  • I think people have got complacent over think it won't happen to May, and they're just going about things as normal and like nothing's different.

  • There are 845 spaces at Surrey's emergency body storage facility.

  • Some fear that may not be enough.

  • Mark Eastern.

  • BBC News.

  • Sorry?

  • Well, the latest government figures show that there were 54,940 new coronavirus infections recorded in the latest 24 hour period.

  • That means the average number of new cases per day in the last week is now 59,853 hospitals have had an average of 29,630 covert 19 in patients.

  • Another 563 deaths have been recorded off people who died within 28 days of a positive covert test.

  • It's the first time in four days that figure has been below.

  • 1000 for the numbers of the weekend are often lower because of delays in collecting the data.

  • On average, there were 909 deaths announced every day in the last week.

  • The total number of UK deaths is now 81,431 today, the health secretary promised that by the autumn, every adult in the U.

  • K.

  • Will have been offered a Corona virus vaccination in England.

  • New NHS Center's opening from tomorrow in London Bristol, Manchester Stevenage Sorry, Birmingham A Newcastle.

  • Our health correspondent Dominique Use has the details.

  • Jesus, this is our best hope of escaping the coronavirus pandemic mass vaccination on a scale the country has never seen before.

  • This center in Stevenage, local NHS staff were among the first to receive the jab.

  • Everybody has been struggling way.

  • You never know whether you're going into work and what you're finding.

  • So by having this, we just know that we can start to toe work together and build and really make a difference in in terms of everyone that's out there and hopefully get out of this pandemic that we're in.

  • I'm happy and excited that I got it because I know I'll be protecting not only myself but the people I work with, as well as the center in Stevenage.

  • This one in Manchester and five other hubs will start offering vaccinations this week.

  • It marks a big acceleration in the vaccination program, and it's needed if the government's gonna hit.

  • It's mid February target of offering the job to 15 million people, including some of the most vulnerable on health and care workers in Scotland.

  • The Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine will be more widely available through 1000 GP practices and centers Wales and Northern Line, and have each administered more than 70,000 vaccines.

  • Long term ambitions go further an announcement this morning that all over Eighteens could receive the jab by autumn right?

  • But that seems a long way away.

  • While a combination of soaring hospital admissions and staff sickness is creating a crisis that is entering uncharted territory, we're seeing hospitals having to divert patients because they're too full on.

  • That's having a knock on effect on other hospitals, who then also become too full on.

  • We're concerned this will be a situation that could spread to other parts off the country, so the situation is quite desperate.

  • In a bid to break the transmission chain of the virus, this week will also see the start in England of regular rapid lateral flow testing for people who can't work from home.

  • The tests deliver results in 30 minutes and aimed to identify people who aren't showing any symptoms, but that's unlikely to ease the pressures the health service faces right now and will over the weeks to come.

The health secretary, Matt Hancock, has warned that flexing locked down rules could be fatal, urging everyone to adhere to restrictions aimed at bringing coronavirus infections under control.
