13 deaths due to Covid-19 reported in the last 24 hours in the UK, 3,568 new infections, and a total of 19,209 new cases in the past 7 days. The highest reported number of daily infections since 1 April, Dr Joe Pajak writes.
First published in April 2021.
As of today, 14.54% of UK adults (7,656,205 people) have completed the full course of TWO vaccinations (as currently required with our vaccines) against Covid-19; and 61.11% of UK adults (32,190,576 people) in total have received only one dose. A wonderful achievement by our NHS staff, volunteers, scientists and vaccine manufacturers.
Note: We must remember that the current vaccines thin use in the UK require two doses to complete the course, so there is no cause for complacency.
Vaccines are the best way for people to be protected from COVID-19 and have already saved thousands of lives, alongside the range of measures provided through various government websites.
Back to today’s data in the UK, which indicate the sad fact that another 13 deaths have been reported in the last 24 hours due to Covid-19. While, transmission of the virus continues to be at a high level with 3,568 new cases reported in the last 24 hours.
The data indicate that 486 people have now lost their lives in the last 14 days due to Covid-19. In addition, 1,522 have now lost their lives because of the virus in the past 28 days, and 43,664 new cases have been reported in the UK in the last 14 days.
It is also worth noting here, the average number of new coronavirus infections, and of deaths due to the virus, reported in the last 28 days of Covid-19 data: average (28-day) reported daily numbers of coronavirus infections (4,245) and the average (28-day) reported daily number of coronavirus deaths (54).
Latest health care data indicate that 2,862 patients suffering from Covid-19 are currently occupying hospital beds (as of 8 April), and 406 patients are requiring intensive care support (as of 9 April) – a continuing concern for our NHS.
Note: The data for deaths attributed to COVID-19 – each following a reported positive test result for COVID-19 within 28 days of their death.
