UK records seven daily Covid deaths after falling a third in a week as cases stay flat at 2,874 and more than 600,000 vaccine doses are dished out

The number of Covid deaths in the UK has dropped by more than a third in a week, with seven new victims and 2,874 positive tests reported.

The 2,657 infections reported today are slightly higher than the 2,657 reported last Thursday, an increase of about 8%, but the national case rate has remained unchanged since April.

Meanwhile, according to the most recent data, another 635,000 Covid vaccine doses were given out yesterday, with 265,000 Britons showing up for their first appointment and 370,000 for their second.
It indicates that 37.2 million people — or more than 70% of all adults — have obtained one injection and 21.2 million have been fully inoculated.

Separate official statistics showed that, despite the rapid spread of the Indian variant, the country’s Covid outbreak is still flat.

Cases remained stable at around 12,000 last week, according to Public Health England’s weekly surveillance report, and fell in all age groups excluding five to nine-year-olds.

Hospitalizations for the virus decreased across the nation, and infection rates decreased in all but the North West, which is dealing with an outbreak of the Indian strain.

Last week, 95 out of 149 local governments (or 64 percent) saw a decrease in Covid cases. There were 66, on the other hand, that showed a decrease over the previous seven-day period.

PHE’s medical director, Dr. Yvonne Doyle, raised concerns about the Indian variant and stated that the agency was “continuously looking into the matter.”

‘Until we learn more, it’s critical that we keep our guard up and remain vigilant,’ she added.
We don’t want to undo all of our hard work.’

The ten places with the largest Covid outbreaks were all hotspots for the Indian variant, according to other statistics from the PHE’s weekly surveillance report.
