The UK reported 40,044 new confirmed COVID-19 cases on Sunday, Nov. 21, bringing the seven-day total to 287,205. An increase of 9.4% over the preceding seven-day period.
According to the statistics, those who died within 28 days of testing positive for the virus were 61.
According to Reuters, the number of people with COVID who died in the past seven days was 1,029, a decrease of 5.9% over the previous seven days.
According to government statistics, there are 9.8 million confirmed coronavirus cases in the United Kingdom. Nearly 144,000 individuals have died as a result of the disaster, as the BBC reported.
Only patients who died within 28 days of testing positive for coronavirus are included in these figures.
In the United Kingdom, more than 50 million (88%) of people aged 12 and over have had their first dose of vaccine, and 46 million (80%) have received a second dose, and 26% have received a booster.
The average number of daily identified cases has climbed since mid-July. And in the last several days, this number has risen again.
NHS chiefs have considered restoring some COVID restrictions, including mandatory face covers in enclosed and crowded settings to minimize a winter outbreak.
According to some sources, the infection rate during the virus’s first peak last spring was substantially higher than the actual number of confirmed cases due to inadequate testing capability.
While the take-up of the first and second doses was reduced, the number of patients who took the booster dose climbed dramatically, with more than 12 million administered in the United Kingdom to date. In Scotland, 1.4 million have been vaccinated, compared to about 720,000 in Wales and 290,000 in Northern Ireland.
However, several doctors and others involved in the booster program have expressed concern about the program’s speed.
