    Coronavirus: Third UK wave could occur in late summer if reopening continues, scientists warn

    Modelling by Imperial College's COVID-19 Response Team also found there could be a "small wave" of hospital admissions and about 9,000 additional deaths by June 2022 if steps three and four of the roadmap continue as planned. "Given the high vaccine uptake observed so far, most deaths are predicted to occur in vaccinated individuals, because of imperfect vaccine efficacy," the report said. Dr Anne Cori, from Imperial College, said the predicted small third wave may be "considerably larger" if variants of concern are imported into the UK.
