UK Covid cases continue to plummet with 38% drop in one week
The Metro says The UK has recorded another 70,924 cases of Covid but it appears the country has past the worst of the Omicron wave.
New infections reported on Sunday took the week’s total to 754,054, a 38% on the previous seven days when well over a million new cases were detected. However no cases from Scotland were included due to an IT problem.
A further 88 deaths were also reported among people who tested positive for Covid within 28 days.
It means in the last week alone, there have been 1,834 deaths – the highest since last winter – but it is hoped this figure will also soon start to fall in line with the decreasing number of cases.
