July rise in Covid-19 cases in England has 'levelled off' again, data shows

An estimated 28,300 people in England had Covid-19 between August 3 and 9, according to new figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

This was the equivalent of about 0.05 per cent of the population, or one in 1,900 individuals.

The estimate is unchanged from the previous week of July 27 to August 2.

The figures do not include people staying in hospitals, care homes or other institutional settings.

The ONS said that while recent figures had suggested the percentage of individuals testing positive for Covid-19 in households in England had risen slightly in July, this trend now appears to have levelled off.
