Latest Covid-19 data

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

The UK has now had a total of 789,229 identified Covid-19 cases and 58,164 deaths (with Covid on the death certificate). The data shows that the UK is now clearly in a second wave. The number of cases has continued to increase, albeit more slowly over the last week, and the pattern of the number of deaths doubling every two weeks has also been maintained. There are some concerns about healthcare capacity in the face of the rising number of hospitalisations and deaths.
