New figures out today from UK Covid app ZOE show there are currently 3,092,451 symptomatic cases of Covid-19 in Britain, making it the third-largest Covid wave ever, and the wave is still growing.
New daily Covid cases in the UK are running at over 262,000, a big increase on the 204,000 cases we reported on just two weeks ago in this post.

We’ve all been here before. We all know how this shitshow ends, right?
