Latest Covid-19 data

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

The UK has now had over 3.2 million identified Covid-19 cases and 89,243 deaths (with Covid on the death certificate). The R rate is estimated to be between 1 and 1.4 with the daily infection rate growing by 0%-6%. Some models estimate that as many as one in five people have had Covid-19.
The Office for National Statistics have released new data on the number of deaths during 2020.

Over recent days it appears that the number of new cases per-day may have peaked and that speed at which the virus is spreading may now be decreasing. However, the number of deaths continues to climb for now.
