In one week, 302 Britons died of the corona virus, the lowest weekly mortality rate since last September. Within the country, the reproductive rate for the UK has been calculated separately, based on the fact that, even in the worst case scenario, the number of infections there is likely to stagnate only in the future.

Corona virus – second year

It has been more than a year since Chinese officials reported a new, fast-spreading virus to the WHO. Since then, there has been hardly a person in the world who has not heard the word Covid-19, and more and more people are mourning with a relative or friend whose new illness has ended, while reserves have been declining for weeks, and our entire lives have been rewritten by the epidemic. Now, vaccinations are complete, which not only raises a lot of questions of hope, but at the same time threatens another mutation, not just stopping the virus. Details of this fight can be found in our series of articles.

In recession and at worst, the stagnation of the spread of corona virus infection is shown by a new assessment team for the UK, which measures the dynamics of the spread of the reproductive index R calculated on Friday. Extensive national epidemiological indicators indicate a significant withdrawal following corona virus infection in the UK.

The UK government’s waiting science advisory board, SAGE, has so far formed a weekly R-rating band for the UK. However, according to its report on Friday, it is now more accurate to calculate the reproduction rate individually for individual parts of the country because the epidemic management is also increasingly local.

Based on their calculations, the R-Index in the UK is currently 0.8 to 1. This suggests that changes in the number of new infections per day in the UK could be between stagnation and a 0.4 per cent decline.

The British Health Department said Friday night that 52 people had died from the corona virus and that 302 had died in the past seven days. This is the lowest weekly mortality rate since September last year.

More than 60 percent of the adult British population has already received the first dose, and nearly 10 percent have received the second dose.

In a Twitter post on Friday, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson called on those vaccinated not to hold community gatherings at home for now. Under current rules, a maximum of six people living outside the home can live together.
