England records 162,572 new Covid-19 cases, another record

Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have imposed restrictions on club closures, social distance bars, and restrictions on the number of people they can meet.

On Saturday, England registered a total of 162,572 new Kovid-19 cases per day, up from a new record of 160,276 yesterday, according to official figures.

The daily update shows 154 new virus deaths in England in the 28 days since the positive test, up from 178 on Friday.

UK data usually includes Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, but this did not happen this Saturday due to differences in New Year’s weekend reporting schedules.

Due to the rapid spread of the Ômicron variant, the number of confirmed infections across the UK repeated in December. However, hospitalizations and deaths are lower than in previous waves.

Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have imposed restrictions on club closures, rules for keeping social distance in bars, and restrictions on the number of people who can meet.

But England, which makes up more than 80 per cent of the UK’s population, has not imposed any restrictions. Health Secretary Sajid Javed said any new restrictions would only be introduced as a “complete last resort”.
