London Mayor declares ’major incident’ over Covid-19 crisis

Sadiq Khan (Labour), the mayor of London, has declared that London is facing a ’major incident’ as hospitals face increased pressure due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The news comes as Mayor Khan estimates 1 in 30 London residents is infected by the virus. He hopes the classification, which was last used in 2017, will help prevent the National Health Service (NHS) from being overburdened.
