Britain has reported the highest daily cases of coronavirus infection since February, indicating that the delta variant of the infection is spreading rapidly in the country. So far 1,27,860 people have died due to infection in the country.
Government figures said on Wednesday that 7,540 new cases of infection were reported in Britain, the highest daily new cases since 26 February. Daily cases in the UK have been increasing for the past few weeks due to the Delta form of infection. Let us tell you that Britain is in fifth place in the world in terms of Kovid dead.
the result of a highly contagious delta
The rising number of infections is a result of the highly contagious delta that has become dominant in the UK and has accounted for more than three out of four new cases. The government revealed that in the midst of all this, it is a matter of relief that half of all adults in the UK are now fully vaccinated against the coronavirus. Two doses of the vaccine are also effective against the new strain and prevent most people from getting sick or dying with COVID.
A total of 2,64,22,303 people have been given the second dose since vaccination started about six months ago. This equates to 50.2 percent of all people 18 years of age and older. Roughly 75.5 percent of adults in the UK have received their first dose of vaccine.
UK Public Health's weekly COVID report found that there has been an uptick in cases of infection among people under the age of 20 in every region and age group in the UK.
Ministers remain silent on whether the lockdown will be allowed to end on June 21 as planned, but Health Minister Matt Hancock said there was a 'good sign' that hospitalizations should be vaccinated. The number of people who have passed away is very less.
The health minister has said the government is keeping a close watch on the level of daily cases but stressed that "what really matters" is how many people are hospitalized and die of the disease and how many people do not get vaccinated. What is the decrease in number?
Scientists in Britain have urged the government to push ahead with plans to lift the lockdown on June 21, as there is a threat of a third wave of the coronavirus pandemic.
