The UK has a total of 400,000 coronavirus infections with an increase of 4,926 per day


The UK recorded another 4,926 cases of coronavirus today, bringing the country's total to over 400,000 confirmed infections as the outbreak continues to grow.

Figures from the Ministry of Health show that an average of 4,189 new Covid-19 infections are registered daily – an increase of 35 percent compared to 3,096 last Tuesday.

However, it is impossible to compare the cases now recorded with the values ​​of the first wave, as the extent of the crisis at the time was a mystery due to the weak government policies. Top experts believe that more than 100,000 cases occurred every day in March and April.

Another 37 people have died across the UK, officials said today, more than any other day in two months. The 44 announced on July 14th was the last highest number. Government statistics show an average of 23 Britons succumb to the disease every day, up from 11 last Tuesday.

Hospital admissions – another measure of the severity of an outbreak – have also risen again. Figures show 237 newly infected patients required NHS care in England on Sunday, up from 153 the week before. The rolling average of seven days has increased by around 56 percent over the same period.

Data released today by the Separate Office for National Statistics (ONS) showed that the weekly number of people dying from Covid-19 rose for the first time since April. In the week ending September 11, 99 people were killed by the coronavirus in England and Wales, up from 78 the week before.

While still the second lowest number of registered deaths since March and just one percent of all deaths from any cause this week, the 27 percent increase shows a reversal of the downward trend that has lasted 20 weeks. Fatalities have been recorded every week since April 17, three weeks after the ban was imposed.

The ONS count announced every day by the Ministry of Health, with the official number of deaths, said the daily average began to rise again on September 7 from seven per day to 22 per day yesterday. All signs suggest that the virus is recovering in the UK and the UK coronavirus alert was raised to four last night, meaning transmission of the virus is "high or exponentially."

Boris Johnson announced today that he will make the army available to the police force to help enforce coronavirus rules as he unveiled a wave of new measures to stop the spread of the disease. The Prime Minister said the police would now have "the ability to resort to military assistance if needed" to release officers to allow more action against rule violations, as he found fines doubled to £ 200.

The UK could see 50,000 crisis-level cases a day by mid-October and 200 deaths a day in November unless action is taken soon to stem the rising tide of cases, Chief Scientific Advisor Sir Patrick Vallance warned yesterday. But scientists have since resorted to the claims – Sir Patrick and Professor Chris Whitty compared the UK's trajectory to Spain and France, saying that neither country has anywhere near 50,000 cases per day.

The ONS report made no commitments to warn of a surge in Covid-19 deaths as it did in the cases, but did issue a qualification that August bank holiday may have caused deaths to be unrealistically low the previous week.

A separate report released today by the ONS found that seven out of ten people of working age who died of coronavirus between March and June had the disease before lockdown began, showing that all groups are after restrictions are in place recorded a decrease in deaths. It has also been alleged that there were only 5,330 deaths among 20- to 64-year-olds in England and Wales – roughly a tenth of the total number of victims since the pandemic began.

In other coronavirus developments in the UK today:

  • Sir Keir Starmer used his first speech at the Labor Conference as Chair to warn that a second national lockdown would be a "sign of government failure and not a force majeure" that would take an "immense toll" on public health and the economy would mean.
  • Sir Keir also claimed that the government's "incompetence" was "holding the UK back" and that Conservatives "underfunding of the NHS" and "abandoning welfare" had kept Britain unprepared for the pandemic.
  • Julian Knight, Tory chairman of the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) selection board, said without a "route map" to bring viewers back to sporting events, "we risk decimating our sporting and cultural infrastructure."
  • Shares in some of the UK's largest pub chains felt the crisis following the 10pm curfew announcement, when City Pub Group fell 6.6 percent while Wetherspoons fell 0.4 percent.
  • Welsh Health Minister Vaughan Gething welcomed the UK government's decision to return to home work as he said it was "a welcome shift … that fits our position".
  • Tory peer Andrew Lloyd Webber warned that commercial theater will not survive unless the government “steps on the table”;
  • Bank of England Governor Andrew Bailey said the rise in coronavirus cases was "extremely difficult news for all of us and the whole country" as the bank "will do whatever it takes to help the businesses and the people of the country to support & # 39 ;.

Most of the working age adults who have died of COVID-19 caught it before shutting down.

Seven out of ten coronavirus deaths among adults of working age between March 9 and June 30 were likely caused by an infection that was intercepted before the lockdown.

There were 5,330 deaths among 20 to 64 year olds in England and Wales, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

Of these, 72 percent (3,839) occurred on or before April 25, and the person likely caught the virus before the lockdown, which began March 23.

The ONS's assumption is based on evidence that the maximum time from infection to onset of symptoms is 14 days and there is an average of about 20 days from onset of symptoms to death.

Deaths from Covid-19 in men who work in health and social services were about three times higher if the virus was assumed to be acquired prior to lockdown than if it was caught during the period.

Among female health and social workers, the death rate was about twice that for those likely to have been infected before the virus was locked.

The lockdown was associated with significantly lower coronavirus death rates in all occupational groups compared to the rates observed before the lockdown.

Men who worked in nursing, recreational and other service professions had the highest death rates from Covid-19 during the lockdown.

After the restrictions were in place, there were 81.3 deaths per 100,000 in these occupations, compared with 32.5 per 100,000 other working-age men.

Working women had “far fewer” deaths than men, but those working in nursing, recreational and other service occupations had higher death rates than their peers in the general population, both before and after lockdown. In these occupations there were 31.3 deaths per 100,000, compared with 17.5 per 100,000 women of working age.

With today's surge in infections, the UK is the 14th country in the world to have recorded more than 400,000 cases of Covid-19 since the pandemic began, after only Spain and France in Europe.

The data also shows that 6.29 cases are now found per 100,000 tests, up from 3.29 two weeks ago. This statistic shows that the outbreak wasn't just due to further testing in hotspots.

The ONS report showed the number had risen for the first time since the week of April 17th. However, the 99 deaths still accounted for just 1 percent of all deaths recorded in the seven-day period ending September 10.

On that day five months ago, it rose from 6,213 to April 10, peaking at 8,758 when people were dying at the rate of almost one per minute.

ONS data counts the number of people who have died of Covid-19 by looking for mentions of the disease on death certificates.

This includes anyone who was suspected of having the disease as well as those who actually tested positive. The Ministry of Health only counts patients who test positive.

As a result, the ONS's estimate of the total number of people who died from the disease is significantly higher.

Today there are 49,869 in England alone, while the Department of Health counts 36,999 who died within a month of diagnosis, or 40,923 within two months.

ONS experts show that there were 53,376 more deaths this year than would normally be expected in England and Wales in what is referred to as "excessive deaths".

It goes without saying that the vast majority of these are due in some form to the Covid-19 pandemic. For example, even if people weren't killed directly by the virus, they may have missed life-saving medical care during the lockdown.

Across the UK, there were an estimated 59,281 deaths during the pandemic, many of which are likely Covid-19 deaths. That number may go down as coronavirus deaths remain low and deaths from other causes are lower than usual.

Today's ONS report showed that all-cause deaths are now 5.4 percent above the five-year average for the season.

Hospital deaths remain lower than usual (371 fewer than normal), but more people die at home than usual (830 above average).

Experts in the past have raised concerns that this could be because people avoided medical care during the crisis and became seriously ill and died at home. The number of deaths in nursing homes was also above average in the week ending September 13 (57 more than usual).

Today's report is of grave concern that the virus is back out of government control as the number of officially recorded cases, hospitalizations and deaths rise again.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson is set to hold a public televised briefing tonight where he is expected to confirm that pubs and restaurants in England are banned from opening after 10 p.m. in order to slow the spread of the virus among young adults.

BORIS BRINGS THE ARMY TO IMPLEMENT RESTRICTIONS

Boris Johnson announced today that he will make the army available to the police force to help enforce coronavirus rules as he unveiled a wave of new measures to stop the spread of the disease.

The Prime Minister said the police would now have "the ability to resort to military assistance if necessary" to release officers to allow more action against violations, as he found fines doubled to £ 200.

Mr Johnson said the UK was at a "dangerous turning point" in the fight against the virus when it imposed a 10pm curfew on all restaurants, bars and pubs across the country starting Thursday, with the hospitality sector also limited to table service only.

The requirement to wear face coverings is expanded to include retail workers and customers in indoor hospitality establishments, except when they are at a table to eat or drink.

Mr Johnson said that "if we don't make tangible progress in the coming weeks," the measures announced this lunchtime "might stay in place for six months" – comments that seem to destroy all hopes for a normal Christmas feast.

He also announced the end of the government's return to work when he said he was now urging "office workers who can work from home".

The government has actively encouraged workers to work from home and today's U-turn marks a humiliating rise for the Prime Minister, who told his cabinet earlier this month that people are right back in our country in large numbers and rightly so Office also return & # 39 ;.

The decision to urge workers to work from home is likely to spark dire warnings about the future of troubled city centers as corporate groups immediately urged the government to extend their vacation program, which is due to be completed in late October.

The prime minister also said he "retains the right to use bigger firepower" if the new plans don't get the disease under control.

Plans for a partial return of sports fans to the stadiums from Oct. 1 have also been "put on hold" while the number of people allowed to attend weddings will be reduced to 15 as of Monday. Exceptions to the rule of six will also be reduced, banning indoor team sports such as five-player soccer games.

Despite the prime minister's new measures, concerns are growing that the government may soon impose stricter restrictions on socialization, even beyond the current rule of six. That could mean a ban on mixing households.

In a separate report released by the ONS today, it was alleged that seven in ten coronavirus deaths among adults of working age between March 9 and June 30 were likely caused by an infection caught before the lockdown .

There were 5,330 deaths among 20- to 64-year-olds in England and Wales, the report said.

Of these, 72 percent (3,839) occurred on or before April 25, and the person likely caught the virus before the lockdown, which began March 23.

The ONS's assumption is based on evidence that the maximum time from infection to onset of symptoms is 14 days and there is an average of about 20 days from onset of symptoms to death.

The death rate from Covid-19 among men working in health and social services was about three times higher when the virus was believed to be acquired before lockdown than when it was caught during the period.

Among female health and social workers, the death rate was about twice that for those likely to have been infected before the virus was locked.

The lockdown was associated with significantly lower coronavirus death rates in all occupational groups compared to the rates observed before the lockdown.

Men who worked in nursing, recreational and other service professions had the highest death rates from Covid-19 during the lockdown.

After the restrictions were in place, there were 81.3 deaths per 100,000 in these occupations, compared with 32.5 per 100,000 other working-age men.

Working women had “far fewer” deaths than men, but those working in nursing, recreational and other service occupations had higher death rates than women of the same age in the general population, both before and after lockdown.

In these occupations there were 31.3 deaths per 100,000, compared with 17.5 per 100,000 women of working age.

This can be largely explained by the high rate of caregivers and home carers who likely continued to work during the lockdown and were unable to work from home, potentially increasing the risk of infection.

The ONS report states: “During the pandemic, some professions, such as B. Health and social professions, continued to work near others. This is one factor that may explain the generally higher rates in such professions. "

Sir Patrick Vallance warned yesterday that the UK will suffer 50,000 new cases of coronavirus a day through mid-October if the spread of the disease is not brought under control and infections continue to double every seven days.

But scientists last night allayed fears that Britain was headed for the milestone and insisted that neither Spain nor France have reached these sky-high levels, despite government fears that Britain is on track to follow its trajectories.

Top scientists believe that during the darkest days of the UK crisis in March and April, there were more than 100,000 cases a day.

And other experts believe the dreaded second wave won't be as deadly as the first because doctors can better treat the disease.

How many people really died from the corona virus in the UK?

Ministry of Health: 41,788

The Ministry of Health's last death toll for all recruitment as of September 22nd is 41,788.

The data, counted daily, shows how many people died within 28 days of the coronavirus test being positive. This was a new deadline set by the Department of Health after it was discovered that Public Health England had counted too many people regardless of how long they died after a test and what they died from.

Only patients who tested positive for the virus are considered, no suspected cases.

National statistical authorities: 57,601

Data compiled by home country statistics shows that 57,601 people across the UK had died from confirmed or suspected Covid-19 by mid-September.

The National Statistics Office confirmed that as of September 11, 52,482 people in England and Wales with confirmed or suspected Covid-19 had died.

According to the Northern Ireland Statistics and Research Agency (NISRA), the number of coronavirus deaths in Northern Ireland at the same time was 883.

National Records Scotland – which collects statistics north of the border – said 4,236 people had died nationwide as of September 13.

Excessive deaths: 59,281

The total number of deaths in the United Kingdom as of September 13 is estimated at 59,281.

Excessive deaths are considered an accurate measure of the number of people killed by the pandemic because it encompasses a wider range of victims.

The data refer not only to people who may have died with Covid-19 without ever being tested, but also how many more people died because, for example, their medical treatment was postponed or when they did not come to the hospital or could you were seriously ill.

Data from England and Wales shows there have been 53,376 additional deaths so far this year, as well as 5,023 in Scotland and 882 in Northern Ireland.

Excessive deaths are the only measure that can and are likely to decrease over time. When the number of deaths from Covid-19 is low, fewer deaths from other causes can cause the number to fall.
