Covid-19: Essex declares major incident over virus cases

BBC Online and Sky News Online report a major incident has been declared in Essex amid fears the number of Covid-19 cases could overwhelm the county’s health services. The Essex Resilience Forum said “growing demand” was putting  significant stress on hospitals and social care settings. Separately, The Independent reports concerns are mounting over the number of Covid-19 patients being admitted to hospitals in London as another NHS trust in the capital issued an urgent warning over its oxygen supplies.
