24 September 2020Still a record of coronavirus cases in the UK since the start of the pandemic
According to reports from the British government, 6,634 infections have been registered in the last 24 hours, over 500 more than yesterday.
Deaths also increased slightly, 40 against 37 yesterday.
Thus the deaths in Great Britain related to Covid-19 rise to almost 42 thousand, while the confirmed infections are in total over 416 thousand.
"This is the highest figure recorded so far and a stark warning to everyone - said Yvonne Doyle, director of Public Health England, cited by the Guardian - the signs are clear. Positivity rates are increasing in all age groups and we continue to see spikes in hospitalization rates and in intensive care. We must comply with all the new measures taken to control the virus and download the new Covid-19 App which is the quickest way to know if you are at risk ".
Despite the very high figure, some experts nevertheless warned not to consider it as a record compared to the first wave, as in the spring, due to the lack of tests, it was not possible to detect how many people were actually infected.
