New figures show a further significant improvement in the epidemic situation in the UK

A further significant slowdown in the spread of corona virus infection in the UK has been shown by new measurements released on Friday.

The British Bureau of Statistics (ONS) estimates that there are currently 248,100 corona virus infections in the UK, based on a comprehensive population-based screening, making it the most populous country in the UK.
This means that one in every 220 people in the UK is infected, which means that about 0.45 per cent of the population has the corona virus in their body.

The ONS calculation system affected 373,700 victims in the UK last week and 481,300 in two weeks. According to a survey a week ago, 0.69 per cent of the English population was infected with a corona virus at the time, up from 0.88 per cent a week ago.

In two weeks, the personal infection rate in the UK has halved.
At the end of January, the Bureau of Statistics estimated the number of people living with the corona virus in the UK to be over one million. That means At the time, 55 people were infected, or 1.87 percent of the English population carrying the new type of corona virus.

According to the latest figures from the British Government’s Waiting Science Advisory Committee (SAGE), Friday The breeding rate R averages 0.7 to 0.9 per UK.The low rating is at a very low level as it was still 0.6 last week, but both peaks of the rating panel are still below the critical level 1.

A new estimate released Friday shows that ten infected people will transmit the corona virus infection to an average of 7-9 people, which means that the rate of infection spread will be slower by that metric.

According to the group’s calculation method, the R-rate of 0.7 to 0.9 decreases by 3 to 5 percent nationally compared to the previous 24 hours of the number of new corona virus infections occurring each day.

SAGE on Friday showed that the R-score is currently 0.6-0.8 within the national average in London, the former center of the UK corona virus outbreak. It is – with many parts of the country – the lowest regional breeding rating band in the UK.

Based on scientific team calculations In the British capital, the number of new corona virus infections is declining by 4-7 per cent every day compared to the previous 24 hours.
As a result of the continuous improvement in the epidemic situation, the British government has already reduced its readiness to the highest five, indicating the severity of the corona virus infection, at one level last week.
