Covid infections are high and rising around the UK
Covid infections are rising in much of the UK, according to data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS).
Latest data from swab tests in the community suggests in England one in every 95 people has the virus. The data comes just ahead of Monday’s dropping of Covid rules.
The figure is up from one in every 160 in the previous week.
The Delta variant accounts for almost every case.
The data suggest that just over 650,000 people, or 1% of the population in the UK, would test positive for coronavirus in the week to 10 July – up from 400,000 people the previous week.
The ONS says the percentage of people testing positive has “continued to increase” in England and Scotland, whereas the “trend is uncertain” in Wales and Northern Ireland.
