As of December 21 2020, over 2.1 million individuals in the UK have tested positive for COVID-19, with approximately 76 000 deaths with the virus registered as a cause. The UK is in the midst of its second wave. Areas in England are now entering, and parts of Scotland are due to enter, the highest level of Tier 4 restrictions in response to a mutation of the COVID-19 virus increasing transmissibility. This is on the heels of what seemed a positive turn in the evolution of the pandemic with the approval and roll-out of the Pfizer vaccine in early December.
