A reading above 130/80 indicates your blood pressure is too high, which could lead to a heart attack or stroke. Dizziness or lightheadedness can be caused by disturbances in the brain, the gastrointestinal system, vision or the inner ear. Dizziness is one of the most common symptoms that cause people to seek medical attention. If you feel a tearing sensation in your back, you may think you’ve pulled a muscle.

He added that it is not likely that a jab will be completed before spring, echoing his earlier warnings and those of his colleague Professor Chris Whitty that the Covid-19 fight will be a long one. His gloomy prediction came as Britain today recorded another 18,804 coronavirus cases and 80 deaths .
