Covid UK has seen a continued drop in the number of cases, with hospitalisations and deaths levels now on par with last year. The company is continuing to monitor the situation closely for any signs of increased activity.
Covid UK has been tracking the number of deaths and hospitalisations for a long time. The data shows that the number of deaths and hospitalisations have leveled off in recent months, but cases continue to fall.

Cases of Covid have continued to decline, with almost 10,000 fewer infections reported today than last week.
According to the most recent data, 26,911 individuals tested positive in the last 24 hours, a drop of 22.4 percent over the previous week.
Experts anticipated a surge in cases when more students returned to school in England and workplaces reopened.
However, there were 38,013 instances last week, suggesting that the rate of transmission is decreasing.
The statistics released today do not include instances from Scotland, which has been struck particularly hard since its own schools reopened last month.
The Scottish Government cited “technical difficulties” as the reason for not being able to provide the most recent statistics.
A total of 158 individuals have died in the UK within 28 days after testing positive for the virus.
On September 11, the most recent day for which statistics are available, another 836 individuals were admitted to hospitals.

Vaccine uptake has remained stable, with 23,003 initial doses and 59,404 second doses given yesterday.
The NHS has officially started its booster campaign, in which millions of eligible individuals will be given a Pfizer vaccine, or in certain instances, a half-dose of Moderna, six months after their previous vaccination.
Despite recent statistics indicating that vaccinations have directly prevented around 230,800 hospital admissions in England, ministers are still trying to persuade the remaining 10% of the population who are still unvaccinated.
According to Public Health England, 178,900 admissions have been avoided in individuals aged 65 and above, with another 51,900 in those aged 45 to 64.

The number of fatalities in England avoided by vaccines has remained constant at 112,300.
According to data from Public Health England, the number of new cases of Covid-19 is decreasing throughout the country.
In the seven days leading up to September 12, North-east England had the highest rate, with 369.6 cases per 100,000 persons, down from 385.7 the week before. The lowest rate is in London, where it is 211.7, down from 250.9 before.
The reintroduction of schools may be seen in the case rates for children aged five to nine, which have increased from 347.1 to 382.0 cases per 100,000 persons.

Infections among 10 to 19-year-olds, on the other hand, have decreased, with a rate of 597.4 in the week ending September 12, down from 696.2 the week before.
According to Dr. Yvonne Doyle, medical director of Public Health England, infection levels in the population are still high.
‘We are in a lot better position now than we were a year ago to deal with the virus, but we must not be complacent,’ she said.
‘Vaccines are our greatest line of defense against the virus, so make sure you get one.’
‘Those over 50 and those who are clinically susceptible will be provided a third primary dosage six months following their second dose, and children aged 12 to 15 will be given one treatment to protect themselves and their families.’
