Recent statistics indicate that the prevalence of Coronavirus infection may have peaked in the most affected areas in the north of England, and the R proliferation rate, which measures the severity of the spread, has also fallen on the national average.
According to a weekly survey by the British Statistics Office (ONS) on Friday, the number of people infected with the Coronavirus in England – by far the most populous part of the United Kingdom – in the week ending 23 October reached 568,100.
This means that 1.04 percent of the population of England contracted the Coronavirus during the week studied.
The Office for National Statistics reported: Its calculation methodology shows that there were 9.52 new cases of coronavirus per day for every 10,000 people in England last week; This corresponds to 51,900 new infections per day.
The statistical office measures the prevalence of coronavirus infection using methods other than government. The British Ministry of Health lists new infections that have undoubtedly been confirmed by examining the Coronavirus in its daily data reports, while the Office for National Statistics identifies process curves that cover a wide range of data, including estimates, in its weekly reports.
According to the British Ministry of Health, 23,065 cases of coronavirus were tested across the UK in the 24 hours that ended Thursday night.
So far, 30.6 million coronavirus tests have been carried out across the country, of which 965340 have tested positive.
According to the UK government’s calculation methodology, which takes into account deaths within 28 days of being diagnosed with coronavirus, there have been 45,955 coronavirus deaths in the UK so far.
However, a survey by the Census Bureau on Friday highlights that while the epidemic remains high in the most affected areas of northern England, the former upward curve for the rate of positivity for new checks in the Northeast appears to be flat.
The UK government’s Standards Scientific Advisory Board (SAGE) said Friday that its latest calculations show that the “R” rate is currently between 1.1 and 1.3 on average across the UK, which means ten people with an average of 11 have an average of 11. Coronavirus infection to 13 other people.
SAGE estimates that the national “R” scale ranged from 1.2 to 1.4 last week, which means that the prevalence of the coronavirus epidemic has decreased somewhat in one week.
The commission calculated that one of the focal points of the UK epidemic, northwest England, had the lowest reproduction rate: here, experts measured an “R” value between 1.0 and 1.2.
Level “R” 1.0 means that the rate of spread of the coronavirus epidemic is not accelerating. UK health authorities estimate that at the time of the peak of the epidemic in the UK in the spring, this figure would have been around 3.5 on the national average.
