Latest COVID-19 data

Data taken from Wikipedia and from the government’s Covid-19 dashboard.

The UK has now had over 5.2 million identified Covid-19 cases and 152,000 deaths (with Covid on the death certificate).

The number of cases has now been rising for ten weeks. The number of deaths has been rising for six weeks and although the number of deaths remains relatively low it is now higher than it was on average during summer 2020. However, some commentators are concerned that numbers could creep higher and overwhelm the NHS.
