Corona virus: A number of new cases are reported daily in France and the UK

The number of cases in the UK has increased by 48 per cent in the last seven days compared to the previous week.

Britain and France on Friday saw a high daily increase in new corona virus cases since the outbreak began. In both countries, AFP reports that Omigron’s new rapidly spreading corona virus variant is responsible for the increase in infections.

The United Kingdom has been recording a daily increase in new cases for several consecutive days. In the last 24 hours, they have registered 122,186 new cases there, which is 2,000 more than the previous day. With 106,022 new arrivals on Wednesday, Britain alone surpassed 100,000 cases a day.

The number of cases in the UK has increased by 48 per cent in the last seven days compared to the previous week. However, the number of hospital admissions and deaths is still growing rapidly, the AFP notes.

Britain is the country with the highest number of deaths due to corona virus in European countries. There were 137 deaths on Friday, and nearly 148,000 people have died in Britain since the outbreak began.

The UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) said Thursday that the risk of hospital admission for omigran infections is 70 percent lower than for delta infections, according to data collected so far. However, these figures are only preliminary.

For the upcoming Christmas holidays, British authorities will not release additional figures on the number of cases and deaths until Monday 27 December.

For the second day in a row, a daily increase in new cases of corona virus infection has been recorded in France as well.

In the last 24 hours, 94,124 newcomers have arrived, and that number is expected to increase due to Omigron’s expanding variation and the Christmas holidays, during which time more people are meeting, AFP writes.

In France, more than 16,000 people have been hospitalized with covid disease, 3,254 of whom are in the intensive care unit. Since the outbreak, 122,462 corona virus-related deaths have been reported in France, with 167 deaths reported on Friday.

In France, about 76.5 percent of the population is fully vaccinated against the corona virus, and the French government is urging citizens to be vaccinated with a third dose.
