The declining trend in coronavirus incidence and death rates in the United Kingdom has continued steadily, with a large number of daily vaccinations maintained.
On Tuesday, 231 deaths were reported from confirmed bodies, a report that is about 1/3 lower than last week.
On a seven-day rolling basis, the country counts 1,329 deaths, also by 33% reduced compared to places in the previous corresponding period.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, however, 124,797 confirmed coronavirus carriers have died within 28 days of being positively diagnosed.
Daytime cases were counted at 5,766. Last Tuesday it was 6,391.
The number of COVID-19 patients is now in the four digits, for the first time since the end of October when it started to exceed 10,000. Specifically, 9,418 patients are now being treated. Of these, 1,356 are intubated.
Finally, on Monday, a total of about 245 thousand doses of vaccines were administered. The first installment was made by 22,592,528 citizens and the second by 1,181,431.
Invitations to make an appointment for vaccination are now received by residents of the country belonging to the age group 55-59 years. This category also includes the 56-year-old Prime Minister Boris Johnson, whose spokesman, however, said that he has not yet received notice to arrange an appointment for the vaccine.
