Every area of Surrey has rise in coronavirus cases

Another 22 cases of coronavirus have been recorded in Surrey in the last 24 hours, according to the latest figures.

The total number of cases across the county now stands at 5,678 today (September 21).

The latest data from Public Health England also shows the UK-wide total number of cases has increased by 4,383 in the last 24 hours, rising to 398,625.

A further 11 deaths have been recorded from people who have tested positive for Covid-19 within the last 28 days. The UK death toll now stands at 41,788.

Speaking today Professor Chris Whitty said there were four ways the virus could have a “significant effect” on the nation’s health if it got out of control.

Those included direct Covid-19 deaths and the risk of the NHS emergency services being “overwhelmed by a huge spike” – something that was prevented by the March lockdown.

The third way was the impact on the NHS if it had to spend “a large proportion of its effort in trying to treat Covid cases”, leading to reductions in other services and indirect deaths and illnesses.

The fourth factor was the risk of economic and social impacts from coronavirus restrictions.
