The UK could be set for ‘firebreak’ lockdown in October if Covid hospitalisations continue to rise.

The government has reportedly drawn up plans for another lockdown in October after a senior government scientist revealed that the UK is about to enter “an extended peak”.

After speaking to SAGE, the i newspaper reported that October half term could be extended to a fortnight rather than a week.

While a full lockdown is unlikely, it is reported some travel restrictions could be reintroduced.

A full lockdown would be seen as a last resort but an extended school half-term into early November could be used to halt hospital admissions.

Face coverings could also return while the government are reportedly considering a return to social distancing and a limit on social gatherings.

Amid these reports, we have summarised the latest Covid-19 figures from Slough.
