LONDON, Sept 30 (Reuters) - Outbreaks of COVID-19 are accelerating quite rapidly in some areas of the United Kingdom and the virus is growing in general across the country, England’s Chief Medical Officer said on Wednesday.

Presenting different charts at a press conference that showed the cases increasing in parts of the north west and north east of England, Whitty said: “This increase, as you can see, is accelerating quite rapidly in some of those areas.”
