North of England, the infection rate of coronavirus is almost TWO in London

According to new research, coronavirus infection rates in the north of England are now almost twice as high as in London.

Using figures from the Covid Symptom Study, which uses an app downloaded by 3.7 million people to detect coronavirus infections, researchers at Kings College London were able to estimate infection rates across the country.

They found that the midpoint of infection in London is 124 per million people, while it is 215 per million in the northwest and 225 per million in the northeast and Yorkshire, revealing regional differences in the spread of the coronavirus.

The data shows that London, the South East and the South West are believed to have the lowest contamination rates in the UK.

On the other hand, Wales and Northern Ireland are believed to have the highest numbers – possibly as much as 768 per million people per day.

The study also found that the daily infection rate in the UK can be as high as 11,300, well above the Public Health England figure of 1,936.

However, the study – conducted in conjunction with health science company ZOE – suggests the number of daily infections is down, down 17 percent since last week.

It comes as number 10 today came back to expert warnings that easing the lockdown will spike in Covid-19 cases, claiming that the crucial coronavirus R rate will remain below levels if Britons continue to adhere to strict social distance guidelines which are designed to stop the outbreak.

Downing Street said the scientific consensus is that it is “ unlikely ” that the loosening of guidelines in England would increase the R rate – the number of people passing an infected patient the virus – even though it is already between 0.7 and 0.9 and dangerously close to the threshold.

Tories and top scientists have raised the alarm about the consequences of the adaptations in England, including six people from different households who can meet in public places or gardens, elementary schools returning and more shops opening.

It is as heads of health announced today that 111 Britons have died following a positive test for coronavirus – the lowest daily toll since Boris Johnson imposed the block on March 23. fatalities over the weekend.

Figures from the United States Department of Health show that the official number of Covid-19 victims has even risen to 39,045, a jump from 556 to yesterday at 38,489. Officials have yet to explain the discrepancy. The actual number is likely to be even higher because the DH count includes only laboratory confirmed cases.

It comes from separate figures revealed today – the first day of England’s easing of closure – that nearly half of NHS hospital representatives in England have not reported any new fatalities in the past 48 hours. Two experts who analyzed the statistics also revealed that 12 trusts in England (9.2 percent) did not record coronavirus deaths in the past week.

At Downing Street’s press conference tonight, health secretary Matt Hancock also revealed 1,570 more Britons who tested positive for the infection – the lowest number since late March. And he presented data showing that 479 patients were hospitalized with England on May 30, down 20 percent in a week.

Beaches and parks were inundated today, and thousands of British people took advantage of the scorching weather on the first day of their closure since draconian measures were introduced 10 weeks ago. Local public health directors today revealed that they fear ministers have lifted too many restrictions too soon.

Coming back to the claims, the Prime Minister’s official spokesman said: ‘We have been working to gradually and safely relieve lockdown measures, the consensus of the scientists is whether test and trace are active and the public is following social distance guidelines, then it is unlikely that the measures will push the R above it. ‘

In other developments of today’s British coronavirus crisis:

  • Some of the 2 million students who returned to primary school were rejected because the teachers were “not ready”;
  • Britons were allowed to meet their friends for social fun and remote games for the first time since March 23, relaxing the lockdown rules;
  • Number 10 admitted that the coronavirus warning level has still not been lowered, despite the fact that the locking rules are relaxed in England;
  • IKEA shoppers in one store formed a giant three-hour queue when the DIY furniture giant reopened 19 furniture sites across England;
  • NHS Covid-19 contact tracers said the system was “clearly not ready” and admitted they had nothing to do all day – despite being paid up to £ 27 an hour;
  • The government’s plan to admit more than 2 million vulnerable people outside lacks any scientific reason and amounts to a PR stunt, an expert warned.

Scientists who have analyzed the statistics have revealed that 12 NHS hospital trusts in England (9.2 percent) have not recorded coronavirus deaths in the past week, as have 65 (49.6 percent) who have not registered in the past 48 hours.

The reproduction rate – which the government has put at the center of its plans to unlock Britain – indicates the number of other people that an infected patient will pass on the disease and it must remain at one or lower, otherwise Groot will Britain is facing crisis.

However, the way the R is calculated means it is out of date, and the last calculation is based on data from about three weeks ago – before the lock was released. Government advisers last week claimed that the R range had fallen to 0.7-0.9, from 0.7-1.

Number 10 chief scientific adviser Sir Patrick Vallance warned that the numbers “ don’t fall quickly ” during a downbeat update at Friday’s Downing Street press conference, saying the rate may be “ very close ” to some in some areas. lie.

The UK dies under 96 in England, nine in Scotland, five in Wales and one in Northern Ireland. Yesterday, officials announced a further 113 deaths from Covid-19, which was also the lowest daily toll since the shutdown began on March 23 (74).

Individual authorities have different cut-off points for filing records, which means that the numbers for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland often do not correspond to the final breakdown of the DH.

NHS England registered another 108 patients in hospitals. Wales reported five new deaths in all environments, while Scotland and Northern Ireland registered one each.

Processes for registering people’s deaths have been known to slow down and even stop on weekends and holidays, meaning there is a dip every Monday – or Tuesday if it is a public holiday – followed by increases on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The bottom line is that two experts today have cracked the numbers reported by NHS England and found that nearly half of the trusts – 65 or 49.6 percent – have not registered any deaths in the past 48 hours.

Professor Carl Heneghan and Dr. Jason Oke, of the Center for Evidence-Based Medicine at Oxford University, said, “The reported number today is 108 hospital deaths in England: 79 (73 percent) of these were in the past week.”

And they added that 12 trusts had not registered Covid-19 deaths in the past week.

These were: Alder Hey Children’s NHS Foundation Trust (FT), Gateshead Health NHS FT, Norfolk and Suffolk NHS FT, North Cumbria Integrated Care NHS FT, North Middlesex University Hospital NHS Trust, Oxford University Hospitals NHS FT, Poole Hospital NHS FT, Royal Devon and Exeter NHS FT, Taunton and Somerset NHS FT, The Hillingdon Hospitals NHS FT, Weston Area Health NHS Trust and Whittington Health NHS Trust.

For comparison, that percentage has hardly changed since academics began analyzing the numbers on May 21. The number of trusts that have registered no deaths for 48 hours is the second highest since data collection began, compared to 52.7 percent yesterday.

Restrictions across the country were lifted today as the open markets reopened, along with auto showrooms. Horse racing has also resumed at the Newcastle racecourse, but there will be no spectators as mass gatherings remain prohibited. Vulnerable people who have been advised to stay indoors because of the coronavirus pandemic are allowed to go outside.

The bottom line is that up to two million students would return to primary school today. But this morning it was revealed that some were rejected because the teachers were “not ready.”

Some 1,500 primary schools in England are estimated to defy the government’s controversial plan to get all reception children from year 1 and year 6 back into class from June 1.

Teachers have admitted they were ‘hardworking’ and unions demanded that the date be moved to June 15 at the earliest, fearing the virus will still spread at a high level.

Parents have revealed that many schools remain closed for at least a week or more, while some have not yet set a date.

At least two dozen councils have refused to reopen or left their school to school leaders, who are trying to find ways to distance themselves socially and have enough teachers to teach “calling” of up to ten children.

MailOnline revealed that there was confusion at several schools in London, with some parents arriving with their children to be told they couldn’t get in and had to go home.

In other developments, ministers are desperately trying to suppress a response to the fact that the lock is simplified today, despite the coronavirus warning level not having been lowered.

With beaches and parks once again overrun by people taking advantage of the blazing weather, Business Secretary Alok Sharma was forced to deny that there was a “dash” to get the country back on track.

He insisted that the new contact tracking system means that measures in specific areas can be tightened again if there is a flare-up.

But Downing Street was forced to admit that the warning level has still not been lowered from level four to three, although the guidance suggested simplifying the lock is only possible after it has been lowered.

Tories and top scientists have raised the alarm about the consequences of the adaptations in England, including six people from different households who can meet in public places or gardens.

There is concern that it will be impossible to “put the ghost back in the bottle” as cases increase, and a Member of Parliament told MailOnline that the government had moved from “baby steps to giant steps” with nothing in between.

The government has urged the British to act ‘sensibly’ as they enjoy a host of new freedoms, following busy scenes across the country yesterday before the revision officially took effect.

It came when Ikea stores across Britain today saw massive queues emerge outside, with customers forming three-hour queues as the locking restrictions were relaxed.

The car park at Ikea in Wembley, North London, which until recently was a coronavirus testing center, was packed with cars this morning when the store opened its doors for the first time since the lock-up closed.

IS COVID-19 LESS POTENT?

Doctors in Italy claim that the coronavirus has weakened and become a shadow of the disease that is rapidly spreading around the world.

Italian doctors say the infection – which has killed 370,000 worldwide – is far less deadly than it was and “no longer exists clinically.”

Patients show much smaller amounts of the virus in their system, compared to samples taken during the peak of the crisis in March and April, they said.

Infections and deaths caused by Covid-19 have been dropping in Italy for weeks. It was at one point the center of Europe’s escalating outbreak.

Scientific theory suggests that viruses can weaken over time to survive – if they kill or cripple all of their human hosts, they run out.

But virologists today doubt the claims of Italian doctors, saying there is no evidence that the virus is losing any strength anywhere. One called them bulls ***.

Viruses known to have mutated in this way, such as HIV and the common cold, have been around for decades and thousands of years, while the coronavirus was only detected in humans in December last year.

Another scientist said it was possible for the coronavirus to mutate in this way, but it was dangerous to assume it was simply from smear samples.

Aerial photos show hundreds of customers queuing up in the stifling heat to enter the Nottingham, Reading and Essex stores, while the government urged the country to act ‘wisely’ amid eased restrictions.

Huge rows of people were also seen around the car parks at the branches of the Swedish furniture giant in Wednesbury, West Midlands.

Some avid customers queued as early as 5:30 a.m. – more than four hours before the store opened at 10:00 a.m. today.

Huge traffic jams were also reported in and around the areas when people flocked to their local branch following Boris Johnson’s further easing of lock restrictions.

Bring your own CHAIRS for barbecues, NO kiddie pools and sex with someone from another house is FORBIDDEN: The government gives detailed instructions on new lockdown rules to try to solve massive confusion

Who can be in my group of six?

What is still prohibited?

  • Visiting friends and family in their homes
  • Stay overnight from your own home, except in a limited number of circumstances, such as for work purposes
  • Sports on an indoor sports field, gym or recreation center, or swimming in a public pool
  • Using an outdoor gym or playground
  • Meeting outside in a group of more than six (excluding members of your own household)

Anyone you like, although the usual rules about isolation if you have symptoms apply. Social distance from people outside your own household remains key.

So you can share a picnic blanket in the park with everyone you live with, but someone else should still be two meters (six feet six inches) away.

And the other important point is that this meeting must be outside. You can hold the meeting in someone’s yard, garden or roof terrace, on the street, in the park, in an empty parking lot. But you cannot have it in a house or flat or in another building.

The other point to note is that the rules out of six only apply to more than one family group. They also point out, “There is no limit to the size of an outdoor meeting if you are all members of the same household.”

Can we get in at all?

You can go through a house or flat to access the garden or terrace, if there is no other way to access it.

And with good news for people with small children or people who want to drink a few beers with friends, you can use the toilet.

The guideline notes, “Do not touch surfaces, and when using the toilet, wash your hands thoroughly, wipe surfaces, use separate or paper towels, and wash or discard them safely after use.

“If you no longer want to stay outside, you have to go home.

“Don’t go to garages, sheds or cabins – these are all interior spaces and where the risk of transfer is greater.”

Can we have a barbecue and how does it work?

eople should not pass food or drink to people who do not belong to their family groups and you should bring your own plates and cutlery

Barbecues and other al fresco foods such as picnics are allowed, but with strict measures to avoid contamination.

You should bring your own garden chairs if possible and if you can’t thoroughly clean the chairs you’re sitting on.

The advice is to ‘stay alert’. People are not allowed to pass food or drink to people outside their family group and you should bring your own plates and cutlery. And you should wash your hands regularly.

And in bad news for the hosts, it adds, “If you’re in someone else’s yard, you shouldn’t go in to help the host bring out the food or to help with the dishes.”

What else can we do? Can we get the paddling pool for the kids?

Paddling pools should not be shared by people who do not belong to the same family group. And the bad news extends to the mega empires that have pools, the rules are the same for them.

I don’t have a garden, can we all meet somewhere else?

The rules allow individual family groups to travel to a different location as long as there is no overnight stay - so camping and weekend breaks are still prohibited

Yes, the rules allow individual family groups to travel to a different location as long as there is no overnight stay – so camping and weekend breaks are still prohibited.

The guidance reads, “You can travel to the open-air space regardless of the distance, as long as you can return the same night and not endanger others because of services you need while you’re away.”

This includes ‘National Parks or Beaches’, although it warns that some will remain cloned – such as Durdle Door in Dorset, which was overrun by people over the weekend.

It also recommends avoiding public transportation whenever possible, and suggests cycling or walking whenever possible.

So no overnight stays allowed?

Not for relaxation, no. Holidays and visits to a second home are not allowed. The only exception is work trips.

The guideline reads: ‘Business premises such as hotels and bed and breakfasts will remain closed, except where the provision of accommodation for specific reasons set out in law, such as for critical employees, if required for a reason related to their work.

“There are also hotels available for those who isolate themselves after arriving in the UK (where no other accommodation is available).”

But I don’t live with my partner and I haven’t seen them in months …

Bad luck. The rules clearly state that conjugal visits are not allowed. In one of the more controversial movements, the Boris Johnson government has introduced a sex ban.

The guidance reads: “Close contact with people from other households means a much higher risk of transmission, and according to scientific advice, we cannot allow people to see people they don’t live with indoors without the risk of the virus spreading.

“We recognize how difficult this is for people – especially those who live alone and we are constantly monitoring this.”

The rules created a lot of entertainment – or horror – on social media, with legal blogger and writer the Secret Barrister pointing out (above) that the guidance only applied to indoor sex.

But there is some confusion as to how well the rule can be enforced.

Downing Street has conveniently confirmed today that police will not enter the homes of people they suspect are breaking the rule, with the Prime Minister’s spokesperson saying, “Police will do what they have been doing since the beginning of the health rules, by exercising common sense and engaging with the public, and imposing fixed fines only when they think this is a last resort.

“The police do not have the power to enter people according to the rules … they cannot enter your home unless they expect serious criminal activity to take place there.”

Can I think of this with sports?

Solo sports such as tennis and golf are allowed in groups of up to six people, while maintaining social distance and without sharing equipment

Yes, sports are allowed under the same collection rules.

Solo sports such as tennis and golf are allowed in groups of up to six people, while maintaining social distance and without sharing equipment.

This includes double tennis “as long as you stay two meters apart.”

And training for team sports such as football, rugby and hockey are also allowed.

The guidance notes, “People who play team sports can meet to train together and do things like fitness training or fitness sessions, but they should be in separate groups of up to six people and should always be two meters apart.

While groups can practice ball skills such as passing and pedaling, equipment sharing should be kept to a minimum and strong hand hygiene practices should be applied before and after training.
