Britain: Again over 20,000 Covid19 cases - Deaths at low levels

Coronavirus cases in the United Kingdom rose to 20,479 in the past 24 hours.

It is the second consecutive day with at least 20,000 confirmed incidents, something that has been happening since the end of January.

However, this is a decrease compared to the 22,868 cases announced on Monday.

In the seven days the increase of cases reaches 72.8%.

Deaths increased by 23, with an increase rate on a seven-day rolling basis to 29.7%.

Hospital admissions have increased by only 10.7% in the last seven days.

This is explained by a statement from a Downing Street spokesman who said that the current cabinet agreed that after July 19, the day the latest restrictions were lifted, the country “will be able to live with Covid, even if cases continue to rise, thanks to protections provided by the vaccine “.

A study from the University of Cambridge shows that now less than one in a thousand coronavirus carriers in England die, at a rate of 0.085%. This reduction in the mortality rate of infections is attributed by researchers to vaccines.

The second dose of the vaccine has now been given to 62.1% of adults, which corresponds to about half of the total population of the country. 84.6% of adults have taken the first dose.
