The UK will have done well if it comes through the COVID-19 crisis with lesser than 20,000 deaths, warned Stephen Powis, the national medical director of the National Health Service. Powis said the NHS had been working to increase the intensive care capacity beyond the 4,000 beds it typically had. Currently the UK has reported 17,089 with 1,019 deaths.
