In the last 24 hours, just under 25,000 infections, a week ago the virus was running at a rate of over 40,000 a day
New covid infections in Britain are down for the sixth consecutive day after the increase attributed to the spread of the delta variant of Sars-Cov-2. In the last 24 hours 24,950 cases have been registered, yesterday there were 29,173. Just a week ago, on July 20, the infections exceeded 46,000 units. The hope is that the constant progress of the vaccination campaign is increasingly counteracting contagiousness.
Hope on which, as we know, the government of Boris Johnson has decided to bet, which despite the wave of cases that began around June 20 has eased restrictions in the country. The “freedom day”, started on July 19, eliminated the main restrictions in place in the country, starting with the use of the mask indoors and distance. For the first time in a long time within the scientific community, which had severely censored the Prime Minister’s choices, a cautious optimism began to spread.
