📆 Today’s Summary.
528 days since the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus was first reported in Britain, it has now been responsible for infecting 5,121,245 people in the UK (according to the official reported positive cases data) and the virus has been responsible for at least 128,425 deaths (within 28 days of first positive test result). Official data currently indicate there have been 152,725 deaths in total, where the deceased person’s death certificate mentioned COVID-19 as one of the causes, registered up to Friday 25 June 2021, according to Public Health England (PHE).
🔍 The Details.
Today’s data in the UK sadly indicate that 26 deaths have been reported in the last 24 hours due to Covid-19, while transmission of the virus is of increasing concern, with a further 31,772 new infections reported in the last 24 hours.
It is worth noting the average number of new coronavirus infections and deaths due to the virus, reported in the last 28 days of Covid-19 data: average (28-day) reported daily numbers of coronavirus infections at 20,154 (the highest 28-day average since 17 February 2021), and the average (28-day) reported daily number of coronavirus deaths has risen to 19.
The 14-day cumulative number of infections reported has increased by 113.7% in the past 14 days from 184,736 to 394,714 (14-day totals, from 28 June 2021 to 11 July 2021). While the official 7-day cumulative equivalent reported today shows an increase of 27.3% in the relevant 7-day period.
Latest health care data indicate that: there were 563 new Covid-19 hospital admissions reported on 6 July (the highest since 10 March 2021), 2,731 patients suffering from Covid-19 are currently occupying hospital beds as of 8 July (the highest since 9 April 2021), and 417 patients are requiring intensive care support as of 8 July (the highest since 8 April 2021) – all three measures increasingly a serious concern for our National Health Service.
These data are providing important detail and appear to indicate that the link has not been completely severed between infections, hospitalisations, intensive care support and deaths due to the virus. In fact, is this a link that is unlikely ever to be completely severed?
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.

💉 Vaccination Data
People vaccinated in the UK: (up to and including 10 July 2021)
• 💉45,881,721 first doses
📈 86.75% of UK adults (aged 18 and above)
📈 68.40% of the total UK population
• 💉34,764,511 fully vaccinated
📈 65.73% of UK adults (aged 18 and above)
📈 51.82% of the total UK population
* Using latest ONS population data published on 25 June 2021
People vaccinated in the UK up to and including 10 July 2021.
UK vaccination: daily numbers continue to fall according to data reported from 10 July 2021.
It is important to note the full range of population data, given that the focus has been on vaccinating those aged 18 and above, and to bear in mind that there is unlikely to be any scientific evidence that the virus draws a line at age 18 years.
Total UK population: 67,081,234 (last year: 66,796,800), via ONS (subject to changes in population over the year). These figures were updated on 25 June 2021.
- Adult population (aged 18 and above) = 52,890,044 (last year: 52,673,433)
- Population aged 16 and above = 54,353,665 (last year: 54,098,971)
- Population aged 11 and above = 58,325,411 (last year: 57,975,918)
- Population aged 5 and above = 63,298,904 (last year: 62,939,544)
We need therefore to challenge politicians who present the “vaccination” figures with an almost casual, over-emphasis of the percentages vaccinated. The data are always currently quoted for those in the population aged 18 and above. So where is the vaccination strategy for children and young people in the UK?
As of 10 July 2021, 51.82% of the “total” UK population had received two doses of a vaccine against the virus (one that for the vaccines currently being used requires 2 doses).
📄 Additional Data
Estimated ®️ number: (report as of 9 July 2021)
- Latest R range for England 1.2 to 1.5
- Latest growth rate range for England +3% to +7% per day
- An R value between 1.2 and 1.5 means that, on average, every 10 people infected will infect between 12 and 15 other people. A growth rate of between 3% and 7% means that the number of new infections is growing by between 3% and 7% every day. These estimates represent the transmission of COVID-19 2 to 3 weeks ago, due to the time delay between someone being infected, developing symptoms, and needing healthcare.
To better understand the state of the epidemic in the UK, the UK government recommend “focusing on indicators for the 4 nations of the UK individually, rather than an average value across the UK.” Estimates of the R value and growth rate for different nations can be found via this link.
New infections and deaths in the last 28 days:
- 564,324 new cases in total 🦠 highest 28-day infections since 17 February 2021
- 521 deaths in total in the last 28 days highest 28-day number of deaths since 8 May 2021
- 528 days since the first reported UK case
- 492 days since the first reported UK death
These data, and trends, are shared to focus some light on the situation. We must never forget the data represent real people suffering, real people dying.
