Weekly Covid deaths in the UK in mid-September breach 1,000 for first time since MARCH, 公式データは示しています

  • Covid contributed to 1,049 deaths in the UK in the week leading up to September 17, the most in six months
  • And the figure is 5.3 per cent more than one week earlier, いつ 996 UK deaths were linked with the virus
  • But there was a slight dip in England, which sent children back to school later than other parts of the UK
  • And Covid deaths stayed flat in Wales and Northern Ireland, where just one or two more deaths were recorded
  • Virus fatalities in Scotland fuelled the increase, surging 78.1 per cent in just one week from 78 に 135
  • Weekly Covid deaths in the UK breached 1,000 in mid-September for the first time since March, official figures revealed today.

    An Office for National Statistics (我ら) report shows the コロナウイルス contributed to 1,049 fatalities in the seven days leading up to September 17, アップ 5 per cent on the previous week.

    This was the highest weekly toll since the week ending March 12 (1,637), when the devastating second wave was beginning to recede. The figure includes any fatalities with Covid mentioned on the death certificate, including cases where it was not the main cause of death.

    その間, official data also revealed more than 70,000 extra deaths have occurred at home in both England and Wales since pandemic began.

    Despite the slight uptick in Covid deaths for the UK as a whole, the number of fatalities registered dipped slightly in England and Wales (851). But this was skewed by last week’s count (857), which was higher than usual due to a lag in registering deaths on the August bank holiday, which fell in the previous seven-day spell.

    The UK-wide rise was fuelled by Scotland, which saw the number of deaths rise by 80 パーセント. It suffered an explosion of Covid cases following the return of schools in mid-August.

    Deaths lag behind cases by several weeks because of the time it takes for someone to become seriously unwell after they catch the virus.

    The rest of the UK didn’t send pupils back until the start of September. But separate data now suggests that the reopening of classrooms in England may have finally triggered another Covid wave.

    Department of Health shows infection rates have been rising among youngsters for a fortnight, fuelled by children returning to classrooms at the start of the month. But rates are trending upwards in 35 to 39-year-olds, 40 to 44-year-olds and 45 to 50-year-olds, suggesting that children may have taken the virus home to their parents.

    セージ, the Government’s scientific advisers had always warned a fourth wave was inevitable, but when the country will see a peak in infections, hospitalisations and deaths and how high the numbers will go is unclear.

    But the success of the vaccine rollout is expected to suppress a fresh wave, with experts insisting that the UK is in a much better position than it was last winter.

    Ministers have vowed not to implement tougher restrictions — such as the return of face masks indoors and work from home guidance — unless the NHS comes under unmanageable pressure.

    The UK-wide figure from the ONS is the first time Covid deaths have breached 1,000 since the week ending March 19, when the virus was mentioned on 1,046 death certificates, accounting for nine per cent of all deaths.

    One week before the most recent figures, in the seven days up to September 10, medics linked 996 of the UK’s 12,527 deaths with the virus (eight per cent).

    The data shows Covid deaths recorded in the UK have increased for the 14th consecutive week, after dropping to 93 in the seven days up to June 11.

    But the proportion of death certificates that mentioned Covid was the lowest in England at 7.6 パーセント (783 COVID死亡者数).

    その間, 9.9 per cent of all deaths in Wales were lined with the virus (66 死亡者(数), while the figure was highest in Northern Ireland, で 16.8 パーセント (63 死亡者(数), and Scotland (10.7 パーセント, 135 死亡者(数).

    The vast majority of coronavirus deaths occurred in the over-65s (80.6 パーセント), and fewer than 30 were recorded among under-45s.

    Scotland experienced record-high infection rates earlier this month after schools returned. Cases peaked at 7,523 9月に 2, but have fallen sharply since then.

    The most recent complete daily data for September 22 show the country recorded just 3,486 infections – less than half the levels seen at the beginning of the month.

    そして 70,602 extra deaths occurred at home in England and Wales since the pandemic began, ONS data revealed.

    Of this number, ただ 8,423 – or 12 per cent – were deaths that involved Covid.

    Even during recent months, when almost all lockdown restrictions have been eased across the country, excess deaths in homes have typically been running at between 700 そして 900 一週間.

    It comes after MailOnline analysis yesterday revealed a fourth wave may be underway, as Covid-infected school-aged children begin to transmit the virus on to their parents.

    いくつか 136,208 people have died within 28 days of a positive test, according to Department of Health data.

    But weekly deaths are still well below levels seen at the peak of the first and second waves.

    Experts had always warned of a fresh wave after the return of schools, where the majority are not vaccinated. In the worst-hit parts of the country, up to one in 24 children tested positive last week alone.

    Scientists said the rise in adults might also be the result of millions more Britons returning to offices this month, following the end of work from home guidance.

    Professor Kevin McConway, emeritus professor of applied statistics at The Open University, noted that the ‘picture isn’t consistent across the whole UKand trends look ‘rather worse in Scotland’.

    彼は言った: ‘In Scotland, the number of Covid-related registrations in the latest week was 135, which is considerably more than the previous week’s figure of 78 – an increase of 73 パーセント, または 57 death registrations, 一週間以内に.

    ‘So trends do look rather worse in Scotland, on these registration figures, than in the other UK countries.

    'しかしながら, the actual level of deaths involving Covid, compared to deaths from other causes, is more concerning in Northern Ireland than in Scotland.

    In Northern Ireland, around one in six death registrations mentioned Covid, which is ‘quite a lot morethan comparable figures for the other nationsone in nine in Scotland, 1つ 10 in Wales and one in 13 イギリスの.

    But official daily figures show ‘signs of a slow decrease in numbers of deaths since the latest week in the death registration figures, in all four UK countries’, which is ‘good news’, 彼は言った.

    ‘But we’ll have to wait to see whether that matches the death registration trends in later weeks,’ 彼が追加した.
