    King’s College ロンドン scientists estimated 58,126 people were getting infected every day in the week ending September 25, アップ 28.9 per cent from the previous seven day spell.

    Britain has seen its Covid cases rise week-on-week for the past 12 日々, after yesterday recording 36,722 infections which was a rise of six per cent on last Wednesday. Scotland recorded a meteoric rise in infections after its schools went back in mid-August.

    It came as separate Test and Trace data showed England’s infections rose 18 per cent in the latest week. There were more than 190.000 positive test results recorded in the week to September 22, 彼らは言った.

    英国の毎日のCovid症例は 7% 一週間で 36,722 as outbreak continues to grow

    Covid cases rose by seven per cent across the UK yesterday, marking the twelfth day in a row that the outbreak grew week-on-week.

    Department of Health bosses posted another 36,722 感染症, a rise of 6.6 per cent compared to the 34,460 positive tests recorded last Wednesday.

    Britain’s infections have increased steadily after schools reopened this month, with increased mixing in classes driving up rates in pupils. And there are now signs that they are passing the virus to their parents.

    その間, 別の 150 deaths were added to the Covid death toll, 一方 659 infected Britons were hospitalised.

    Both figures – which lag several weeks behind cases because of how long it can take for infected patients to become seriously ill – are down 10 per cent compared to last week’s data.

    The latest figures means an average of 35,204 people tested positive on any given day in the last week.

    Nearly 8million Britons have received a positive lab-reported or lateral flow result since the beginning of the pandemic.

    Millions more cases have been missed due to lack of testing capacity in previous waves and asymptomatic spreaders, who make up a significant amount of transmission.

    At the peak of the second wave last winter, いくつか 81,480 people tested positive on a single day.

    The vast majority of the daily infections were spotted in England. いくつか 29,036 cases were recorded, a rise of 6.3 per cent on the 27,317 positive tests last week.

    Estimates from the Covid symptom study app — also run by health data science company ZOE — suggested Covid cases rose in all four UK nations last week compared to the previous seven-day spell.

    Wales was predicted to have seen the sharpest rise in infections, アップ 33 per cent in a week to 4,185 cases a day, followed by England (アップ 29 パーセントから 46,275), and Northern Ireland (アップ 28 パーセントから 1,999).

    Scotland was predicted to have seen its cases rise by five per cent in the latest week, と 4,185 residents thought to be catching the virus every day.

    Professor Spector, an epidemiologist at King’s College London, 前記: ‘While the latest ZOE data shows new cases are up on last week, it’s encouraging to see national hospitalisation rates falling as we approach winter.

    ‘While most cases are still in the young, we’re seeing infections being passed up the generational ladder, likely from school children to their parents.

    ‘Most of these new adult infections are in the under 50s, who still have a relatively low risk of being admitted to hospital, especially if they’ve been fully vaccinated.

    ‘As the winter approaches, it’s important parents of school-aged children and students don’t pass the virus on to more vulnerable grandparents by not recognising simple cold-like symptoms as a possible Covid infection.

    ‘This is a critical time and a little caution could make all the difference in avoiding a winter crisis for hospitals.

    Separate Test and Trace figures showed some 10.9 per cent of people who tested positive for Covid — around one in nine — were not reached, meaning they were not able to provide details of recent close contacts. This was down from 11.7 per cent in the previous week.

    Anybody in England who tests positive for Covid, either through a rapid (LFD) test or a PCR test processed in a laboratory, is transferred to Test and Trace so their contacts can be identified and alerted.

    の合計 75.0 per cent of people who were tested for Covid in England in the week ending September 22 at a regional site, local site or mobile testing unit — a so-called ‘in-persontest — received their result within 24 時間.

    This is down from 87.3 per cent the previous week and is the lowest since the week to July 21.

    Prime Minister Boris Johnson had pledged that, by the end of June 2020, the results of all in-person tests would be back within 24 時間.

    He told the House of Commons on June 3 2020 he would get ‘all tests turned around within 24 hours by the end of June, except for difficulties with postal tests or insuperable problems like that’.

    Boris Johnson is banking on booster shots for the over-50s and first doses for 12 to 15-year-olds to keep a lid on the virus this winter.

    But should the NHS come under severe pressure the Prime Minister has warned some restrictions will have to be brought back, including face masks and social distancing. The Government’s scientific advisers say ministers may need to go harder and faster to suppress an outbreak of the virus.

    Yesterday Covid cases rose by seven per cent across the UK, marking the twelfth day in a row that the outbreak had grown week-on-week.

    Department of Health bosses posted another 36,722 感染症, a rise of 6.6 per cent compared to the 34,460 positive tests recorded last Wednesday.
