Description

When it comes to Covid, what starts in one country, quickly spreads to another. As Europe is gripped by a fourth wave, and sees civil unrest as some protestors say “no” to new restrictions, will we see infections, and tempers, peak in the UK too? 

Here in the UK, our Delta wave came much earlier in the summer, and our boosters are working - although cases remain high. So has the UK’s path through the pandemic taken a different turn to the rest of Europe? Are we on top of it, or do we need Covid passports, or vaccine mandates to keep things under control? 

On today’s Fourcast, our Health and Social Care Editor Victoria Macdonald explains why the cases are rising in Europe and asks whether the compulsory jab mandates seen on the continent are coming to our shores next.
