UK Records Lowest Deaths and Newly Registered Cases since March.
On Monday June 22nd, The United Kingdom recorded the least number of new Coronavirus cases since March. Only 958 new cases emerged which is the lowest since lockdown in the UK was imposed. Official Numbers also show the lowest daily death toll of 15 since March.
Department Of Health statistics now show that almost 42,647 people who were diagnosed with coronavirus have died. However taking into account all suspected fatalities, the death toll has already topped 50,000.
Official Numbers released confirm that only 958 new cases were recorded on Monday. It is the lowest number of newly recorded cases since March 23rd in UK, when Prime Minister Boris Johnson imposed the draconian restrictions to stop the outbreak.
The total death toll among people who tested positive for Covid-19 rose by 15 to 46,647. It is the lowest daily increase since March 15th which also had 15 deaths reported due to Coronavirus.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock stated that now only one in every 1,700 people is reported as infected, down from one in 400 a month ago. He also revealed that now less than 5000 infected citizens were in hospitals for the first time since the peak of ongoing crisis.
“We are clearly making progress,” he told a daily media briefing. “All of those figures are coming down and pointing in the right direction.”
These numbers come along as Boris Johnson is expected to unveil a major relaxation in the Coronavirus lockdown rules on Tuesday. He is also to announce the conclusion of a review into the two-metre social distancing rules. The Prime Minister will reveal further road-map of his plan to reopen the hospitality sector, including bars and restaurants, from July 4th.
Although the number of deaths is always lower on weekends due to delays in record, experts are convinced that the outbreak in UK has slowed down.
