England’s Covid virus outbreak shrank by 16% to under 1million. This was a mass-testing report that shows experts praise the country’s wall of immunity , but 1 in 60 were infected at any time.

  • According to Office for National Statistics (ONS), 925,400 individuals in England were living with Covid during any one day of last week.
  • This figure is 16.1 percent lower than its estimate of 1,103,300 infections calculated one week prior
  • All age groups are seeing a drop in cases, with the largest decline being seen between 11 and 16 year-olds


Official figures reveal that England’s covid cases dropped by 16% last week. Experts hail an “wall of immunity” among the populace to prevent infections and vaccines.

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) calculated case numbers using thousands of random blood swabs. It found that 925.400 people were infected in the United States on any given week-end ending in November 6.

This is equivalent to 1 in 60 cases of the virus. 16.1 percent lower than 1,103 300 cases that were estimated to have occurred one week ago, when only one in 50 was believed to be infected.

The number of cases seems to be decreasing in every age group, especially among the 11-16-year-olds. In the past week, 4.8% were reported to have contracted the virus, as compared with 7.5% in seven days.

Experts have said that the decrease in immune function is more important than behavioral changes and restrictions.

A separate report by the UK’s largest symptom tracking study showed cases falling by almost one fifth, the highest weekly drop since last summer.

Yesterday, data from the Department for Health showed that Covid case numbers rose 14%. This is the first increase in 10 consecutive days. Hospitalisations and deaths fell each week.

The Office for National Statistics, which calculates case numbers based on thousands of random swab tests, found 925,400 people in the country were infected on any given day in the week ending November 6. The figure equates to one in 60 people having the virus and is 16.1 per cent lower than the estimated 1,103,300 cases one week earlier, when one in 50 people were infected

According to the Office for National Statistics (ONS), which uses thousands of random swab testing to calculate case numbers, 925,400 persons in the country had been infected during the week that ended November 6. This figure is equivalent to 1 in 60 people being infected with the virus. It’s 16.1 percent lower than that of 1,103,300 people who were infected a week prior, which was one in fifty.

The ONS Covid survey randomly swabs 100,000 Britons every seven days — even if they have no symptoms of the virus — to estimate its prevalence in the country.

It’s considered to be the highest-ranking surveillance program for monitoring the spread and control of the virus in ministerial offices.

The number of positive tests in Wales has dropped over the past week. The ONS estimated 64,900 people (2.13 per cent) — one in 45 — were infected on any day.

The statisticians estimated that approximately 24700 persons (1.35%) were infected with the virus in Northern Ireland. That is one-in-75 people. But they also noted that there was no clear trend.

One in 85 Scots were believed to be affected by the virus (62,100, 1.18%), but the ONS stated that the number of cases has declined.

Within England, cases fell in seven of the country’s nine regions. Infections increased in the East Midlands — which also has the highest rate in the country, with 2 per cent of the local population thought to be carrying the virus. According to the ONS, there were no clear figures on the number of West Midlands cases.

These cases also exceeded the national averages in Yorkshire, the Humber (2%) the West Midlands (1.9%), South West (1.9%) and North West (1.8%).

Rates were higher in London (1.2%), South East (1.5%), North East (1.4%), and East of England (1.7%).
