Number of Brits falling ill with Covid every day jumped 18% last week to 76,728 as unvaccinated children drove up cases, symptom-tracking study claims
지난 주에 코로나19 증상이 있는 사례가 거의 5분의 1 증가했습니다. 76,000 매일 병에 걸리는 영국인, according to a major surveillance study.
팀 스펙터 교수, the eminent epidemiologist behind the study, 경고 사례는 '너무 높음’ 그리고 지금은 '영국을 코로나19 성공 사례로 묘사'할 때가 아닙니다..
The King’s College 런던 ZOE symptom-tracking study estimated that 76,728 사람들은 11월로 끝나는 주에 하루에 아프다 20, 주변의 테스트 결과를 바탕으로 750,000 자원 봉사자.
It marked a rise of 18 per cent compared to the estimate on the previous week and means one in 66 영국인은 주어진 시간에 증상이 있는 감염을 겪었습니다..
The R rate — the average number of people an infected person will pass the virus onto — is estimated to be around 1.1 영국 전역을 위해, 그러나 스코틀랜드에서는 약간 낮습니다. (1.0).

감염은 18세 미만에서 가장 빠르게 증가하고 있습니다., 많은 사람들이 잽을 받을 자격이 없습니다.. 아동 사례는 '전체 수치 반등의 주요 동인'으로 설명되었습니다..

Get your booster by December 11 and you’ll be ‘highly protected’ at Xmas
Eligible Britons have a two-week window to get a Covid booster if they want to have maximum protection from the virus on Christmas Day.
The NHS has issued a plea to the roughly 7million — or three in 10 — eligible people who have yet to have the crucial third dose.
Real-world UK data shows protection against getting sick with Covid rises to more than 90 per cent two weeks after the injection. Immunity against hospitalisation and death is even higher.
It means that getting a booster by December 11 will give people ‘very high protection against Covid by Christmas day’, 관리들은 말했다.
Boosters are being offered to everyone over 40, so long as it has been six months since their second dose. But people can book their appointment at the five-month mark.
Figures show 23million people were double-vaccinated against Covid by May 25, roughly six months ago.
현재 16 million boosters have been administered, suggesting 7million (30 퍼센트) have still to come forward.
The UK is hoping for a relatively normal Christmas this year after surging Covid cases in the last few weeks of 2020 prompted last-minute lockdown curbs.
스펙터 교수는 말했다.: '다시 증가하는 사례를 보면 참 안타까운 일이고 최근의 기복이, 이전 웨이브와 달리, 일이 매주 어디에서 일어날지 예측하기 어렵게 만들고 있습니다.. 하나, 나를 위해, 메시지는 사례가 여전히 너무 높다는 것입니다..
'우리가 등장하지만, 당분간, 사례 수 면에서 일부 유럽 국가보다 나은 결과, 영국은 상대적으로 높은 입원 및 사망률을 계속 유지하고 있습니다., 이것은 우려의 실제 원인입니다.
'현재 우리 병원의 과부하를 감안할 때, 지금은 영국을 코로나19의 성공 사례로 묘사할 때가 아닙니다., 그것에서 멀리.
'새로운 사례의 증가는 어린이에 의해 주도되는 반면, 그들에게 단기적으로 초점을 맞추는 것은 실수가 될 것입니다.’
그는 계속했다: '정부가 크리스마스에 대한 제한을 시행하지 않을 것 같지만, 가족 모임은 의심할 여지 없이 위험을 증가시킬 것입니다, 특히 아직 세 번째 백신 접종을 받지 않은 노인 및 취약한 가족 구성원의 경우.
'크리스마스를 저장하는 것은 우리에게 달려 있습니다.. 세 번째 잽을 받을 자격이 있는 사람들은 지금 가져와야 합니다., 감기와 유사한 증상이 있는 4명 중 1명은 코로나바이러스.
'위험을 고려하고 휴일 동안 가족을 병원에 가지 않도록하십시오.’
Children are less likely to suffer severe illness and death with Covid than older, more vulnerable adults — explaining the current trend in falling hospitalisations and fatalities over the past week in the Government’s own data.
Admissions fell for the eighth day in a row to 722 토요일에, the latest date data is available for — a fall of more than a third on the more than 1,000 daily hospitalisations recorded a month ago.
Death likewise fell yesterday to 149, down a quarter on the previous week and marking the fifth day in a row fatalities had fallen.
The ZOE study showed cases are highest in children aged under 18, who are seeing more than 30,000 symptomatic infections per day.
대조적으로, 노인들 75 and over have the lowest level of illness, 이하 1,000 cases estimated in the age group each day.
Covid was most prevalent in Yorkshire and the Humber, where one in 56 people were infected per day during the week.
It was followed by the East of England (하나에 62) and the West Midlands (하나에 63). London had the lowest rate with just 8,813 cases estimated per day in the capital — a rate of one in 81 사람들.
New Botswana variant with 32 ‘horrific’ mutations is the most evolved Covid strain EVER — as experts warn it could be ‘worse than Delta’
British experts have sounded the alarm over a new Covid variant believed to have emerged in Botswana that is the most mutated version of the virus yet.
뿐 10 cases of the strain, which could be named ‘Nu’, have been detected so far.
But it has already been spotted in three countries, suggesting the variant is likely more widespread.
It carries 32 mutations, many of which suggest it is highly transmissible and vaccine-resistant, and has more alterations to its spike protein than any other variant.
Changes to the spike make it difficult for current jabs to fight off, because they train the immune system to recognise an older version of this part of the virus.
Dr Tom Peacock, a virologist at Imperial College who first picked up on its spread, described the variant’s combination of mutations as ‘horrific’.
He warned that B.1.1.529, its scientific name, had the potential to be ‘worse than nearly anything else about’ — including the world-dominant Delta strain.
Department of Health figures show England recorded 36,550 cases yesterday and 2,154 people tested positive in Wales, 동안 3,080 infections were registered in Scotland and 1,931 were recorded in Northern Ireland.
Across the four nations, 9.9million infections have been confirmed since the pandemic began last March. But the real number will be many millions more, due to the limited testing capacity at the start of the Covid crisis and not everyone who catches the virus getting tested.
Cases rates are highest and rising fastest among younger groups, 와 1,090 당 100,000 10 to 14-year-olds testing positive in the seven days up to November 19. Infections jumped by 30 per cent in a week among the age group.
Despite rising case numbers, hospitalisations and deaths remain less than half the level recorded at the same time last year.
약간 722 Covid-infected Britons were admitted to hospitals across the UK on Saturday, 동안 7,874 people who have the virus were under NHS care yesterday.
For comparison, 1,552 Covid patients were hospitalised on the same day last year and a total 17,680 were in hospital.
과 149 deaths were recorded in the last 24 시간, 에 비해 464 this time last year.
그 동안에, 26,822 first doses and 22,002 second doses were administered across the UK, meaning 50.8million over-12s (88.4 퍼센트) have had at least one injection and 46.2million (80.4 퍼센트) 완전히 면역.
약간 365,152 more Britons came forward for booster doses in the last 24 시간, meaning 16million over-40s, frontline workers and vulnerable people are now triple-jabbed.
The EU yesterday urged its member nations to give everyone aged 18 and over a third Covid jab to control infections, hospitalisations and deaths this winter.
But the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI), which advises No10 on the rollout, is yet to issue a decision on triple-jabbing all adults, after expanding the list of those eligible last week to everyone aged over 40.
