Covid returns to January levels with one million infections – and 2 most affected groups – .


Covid has returned to January levels with one million infections – and two groups are most affected.
Infections increased the most in school years 7-11 and over 50s, according to the Office of National Statistics.

The figures also revealed that around one in 60 people in private households in England had Covid-19 in the week of October 9, compared to one in 70 the week before.

One in 60 people is equivalent to about 890,000 people.

At the height of the second wave in early January, about one in 50 people had coronavirus.

ONS said: ‘Data from the coronavirus infection investigation shows one million people across the UK have had COVID-19 in the past week, as infections have increased in England and Wales, but declined in Scotland. “

Infection levels have also increased in all parts of England except the North East, East Midlands and London.

Yesterday, the UK’s daily Covid cases reached 69,000.

This is the ZOE CoVID study, the third wave of coronavirus has now reached its peak.

Further research found in the double vaccinated population there are around 18,817 new symptomatic cases daily in the UK.

The UK R-value is also estimated to be around 1.0 and the regional R-values ​​in England are 1.0, Wales 1.0 and Scotland 0.9.

ZOE COVID Study Senior Scientist Professor Tim Spector comments on the latest data: « The UK seems to be slowly waking up to the fact that COVID cases are too high, but the reality is that they have been skyrocketing for months and many countries have put us on their redlists.

“Infections remain high among young people and seem to be spreading among 35-55 year olds. If those increases creep into those over 55, it could spell disaster for the NHS this winter.

“This week, a major UK nursing home provider confirmed that, based on our research, they are now including cold-like symptoms on their visitor forms to prevent potential COVID cases from entering their facilities.

“This is a bold move because it goes against official government guidelines, but will ultimately save lives, and I hope others will follow suit. “
