Estimated infections have suggested that Covid-19 is still on the rise in some parts of the UK. The trend is uncertain in the UK but in Northern Ireland and Scotland, the data suggests that Covid is increasing.

The UK has seen more than 200,000 people pass due to Covid-19, while 190,000 have died during the 28 days of having the infection.

Covid-19 Vaccination Process!

It is currently believed that 9 in 10 people aged 12 have had their Covid-19 jab. The first jab that is.

For now, cases will continue to rise up and down as more and more infections will happen during the Winter times. The data will suggest that Covid-19 will start to pick up soon.

The vaccine rollout has continued, with the believed amount of people being given the first vaccine being 94% and the second being 88%.

Covid-19 has started coming up due to the number of people catching it during the winter period, and also due to the legal rules stating that they no longer have to self-isolate if contacting Covid-19.

The rules changed during the former PM Boris Johnson’s run and this changed due to the increase and decrease in Covid-19 cases. Allowing Johnson, at the time, to lift all restrictions and now the UK is in the “Living with Covid” stage.
