The study contradicts the drop in measured cases in the UK

Following an outbreak since the beginning of the summer due to the highly contagious delta variation, the UK recently recorded 60,000 new cases in 24 hours. But daily figures for new pollutants have plummeted in recent days before starting to rise again.

According to a study by the National Statistics Office (ONS) released on Friday, the Govt-19 epidemic has continued to progress in the United Kingdom over the past week, contrasting with the drop in the number of cases reported daily by health services.

For the week ending July 24, the number of cases continued to rise in the United Kingdom, with the exception of Scotland, where the percentage of those tested positive has dropped, but indicates a possible recession in the UK.

Based on a population sample, the ONS estimates that 856,200 people were affected in the UK that week, or one in 65 at the same rate as in Northern Ireland. In Scotland, one in 110 people, and in Wales, one in 160 are affected.

On the contrary

These figures compare to daily new cases being recorded every day, which have provoked confusion among scientists and the government, at a time when the UK is mingling with the end of restrictions and the start of school holidays.

Following the outbreak since the beginning of the summer due to the highly contagious delta variation, the UK recently recorded 60,000 new cases in 24 hours. But daily figures for new pollutants have plummeted in recent days before starting to rise again.

Hospital admissions are on the rise (nearly 6,300, up 21% in the last seven days): 499, (up to almost 29%) in the last seven days, for a total of more than 129,000 deaths, one of the worst outcomes in Europe.
