LONDON (Reuters) – Britain will see more deaths from coronavirus before a vaccination programme takes effect, England’s chief medical officer Chris Whitty said on Tuesday after the country’s death toll exceeded 100,000.

“Unfortunately we’re going to see quite a lot more deaths over the next few weeks before the effects of the vaccines begin to be felt,” he said.
