Another 31,772 coronavirus cases and 26 deaths recorded across the UK

In the latest 24-hour period, another 31,772 Covid-19 cases and 26 deaths have been recorded across the UK. 

Covid cases in the past week have risen by just over 27% compared with the previous week while deaths have risen by two thirds. 

Another 93,763 people had their first dose of a vaccine in the UK on Saturday, taking the total to 45,881,721 – 87.1% of the adult population.

Covid vaccinations to 65%

A total of 211,446 people had their second jab, 66% of adults are now fully vaccinated.

Those admitted to hospitals has more than doubled in the last week data is available for – 563 people admitted to hospital on 6 July and 3,081 in the week to that date. 

The latest statistics come just eight days before the 19 July lockdown lifting – in which most restrictions in England will be removed – although a final decision is to be made on Monday. 

PM Boris Johnson said the UK will have to learn to live with the coronavirus outbreak as he praised the vaccine rollout and said most of those admitted to the hospital are unvaccinated. 

But scientists have urged the government to reconsider the lockdown lifting plans as they say abandoning restrictions is a “dangerous and unethical experiment.”
