THE coronavirus figures in the UK keep on climbing relentlessly and in the last 24 hours there has been an increase of 642 cases. Although this is showing a steady decline from the peak of the crisis, in April, this is still a worrying amount of cases.
This brings the total amount of cases in the UK to 287,621 and in the last 24 hours, Great Britain has also recorded 85 deaths, bringing the total death rate to 44,602. After Monday, July 13, the UK will be able to reopen its hairdressing salons, pubs, bars, outdoor cinemas, and places of worship. Hopefully, the risk of transmission in these shared areas and businesses will be minimalised.
The area with the highest rate of Covid-19 is currently Leicester, followed by Rochdale, Bradford, Kirklees and Wrexham. Nevertheless, the figures are showing a downward trend since the peak of the pandemic.
