Some decline in newly infected numbers reported yet number of deceased are highest from March

The number of coronavirus infections in the United Kingdom continues to decline. 23,511 new cases were reported to the authorities on Tuesday, for the seventh day in a row less than the day before. The number of newly reported deaths is at 131 at the highest level since March.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson is urging people to remain cautious.

“It is very important that we do not jump to conclusions,” said Johnson.

It is not clear why the number of new infections is now rapidly decreasing. It well may be a statistics feature.

Since May, more and more British people have tested positive for coronavirus. The peak (54,674) was on July 17. The increase is due to the additional infectious Delta variant of the virus and the abolition of many coronavirus measures in the UK. The virus spread among young men who watched the European football championship together. Especially in England, where there are virtually no restrictions, recently many people became infected.
