Admittedly, the death balances given on Tuesdays and Wednesdays are usually the highest during the week, because they supplement those that were not recorded during the weekend, but the current one is almost twice as high as that from the week before – 50.
This clearly proves that the increasing number of infections does, however, translate into an increase in deaths. In the past seven days, 342 of them have been registered, which is more than 60 percent. more than the previous seven. Thus, the total loss of fatalities in the pandemic in Great Britain increased to 128,000. 823.
Over 46.5 thousand infections from the last day are several thousand less than the records of the third wave of the pandemic, broken at the end of last week, but one should not draw too far-reaching conclusions from this. Especially that on Monday in England, almost all legally binding covid restrictions were lifted, which will inevitably result in an increase in the number of infections, experts say.
Great Britain will not peak until the end of August until mid-September?
Health Minister Sajid Javid said two weeks ago that by the end of the summer, infection balances could reach 100,000. per day, and according to SAGE, the Scientific Advisory Group on Crises, the number of deaths could be as high as 100-200 per day at the peak of the third wave.
However, scientists predict that the peak of the Third Wave in Britain will not be until the end of August to mid-September. These highest death forecasts are still below the highs of the second wave, with more than 1,000 deaths almost a day in January, and more than 1,800 deaths recorded on the worst day.
Until Monday inclusive, 46.35 million people in the UK received the first dose of the vaccine, and both 36.24 million. This is 88 percent, respectively. and 68.8 percent. adult inhabitants of the country.
