A further 48,682 corona virus cases and 1,248 deaths were reported in the UK.
This will take the total number of deaths within a positive 28 days COVID-19 Tested at 86,015, it is the fifth highest death toll in the world, according to Johns Hopkins University.
On Wednesday, the UK reported a further 1,564 Corona virus Casualties. This is the highest daily number since the outbreak, but accounts for when deaths have been reported – not when they occurred.
However, for the fourth day in a row on Thursday there were less than 50,000 cases, giving credibility to the recommendations that the lock-up has an impact.
2,918,252 people have now received the first vaccine dose – an increase of 278,943.
The Public Health UK said data on Thursday was released later than usual due to a technical problem.
Prior to a recent update to the Government Data Dashboard, a senior epidemiologist said the national corona virus growth rate appeared to be declining, with some parts of the UK showing a plateau of cases.
Professor Neil Ferguson said early modeling made him a key player in the UK’s first lockout, which he believes the current wave of epidemics could be brought under control in some regions.
He told BBC Radio 4’s Today’s Today: “I think it’s too early to say exactly when the case numbers will start coming in, but there are signs of a plateau in some NHS regions in the UK and Wales.”
Along with the Southeast, London is seeing a particular drop in the number of positive corona virus tests, which is starting to reduce hospital admissions, he said.
“I have to say it was not found everywhere,” he added.
“Both case numbers and hospital admissions are increasing in many areas, but overall, the growth rate is slowing at a national level.”
The UK’s weekly COVID monitoring report on public health says the case rate is declining, but ICU admissions, hospitalizations and deaths continue to rise.
In London, where 10,000 deaths occurred on Wednesday, a large number of people have been admitted to hospital.
Meanwhile, Health Secretary Matt Hankok says three million corona virus vaccines have now been distributed across the UK.
“We are accelerating the release of the COVID vaccine across the UK,” he tweeted, adding that he was “delighted”.
