The situation in the United Kingdom: today record of new cases since February
Today the United Kingdom has set a new record of infections in what seems to be the fourth wave: over 16,000 in 24 hours, never so many since last February 6. A new spike in Covid cases fueled by the Delta (formerly Indian) variant of the coronavirus, with a daily rate of positive tests of 16,135, the highest number since February 2. In any case, the British government data confirm a more contained increase in total hospital admissions (now equal to 1508) thanks to the effectiveness of the vaccination campaign and also a drop in deaths, from 27 yesterday to 19. The vaccines administered ( another 550,000 in the last 24 hours) now exceed 75 million doses, with 60.2 of the entire adult population fully immunized and 82.5% reached by at least a first dose.
