520,000 people have been tagged by the Covid test and trace app, a 46 percent increase since January.
The number of people in England who have been notified by the NHS test and trace app has increased by 46%, to the highest level since January.
According to newly revealed statistics, more than 520,000 people were notified that they had come into touch with someone who had tested positive for Covid. This means that in the week ending July 7, about 1% of the English population was tagged. As millions of people count down to “Freedom Day” on July 19, the data will be a source of concern.
For the first time since March 2020, nightclubs are due to reopen, and revelers will no longer be compelled to wear masks.
The software has been a crucial tool in the fight against the virus in the country.
However, it has been widely panned, and according to a recent poll, one out of every five people who downloaded it eventually deleted it.
In the week ending July 7, 63.0 percent of patients who were tested for the coronavirus in England at a regional site, local site, or mobile testing unit – a so-called “in-person” test – had their results within 24 hours, according to new numbers.
This is down from 76.9% the previous week, and it’s the lowest percentage since January 13th.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson promised that all in-person test results would be available within 24 hours by the end of June 2020.
The Prime Minister indicated this morning in Coventry that the worst of the pandemic is likely over if people are cautious when restrictions in England are lifted on Monday.
“I wish I could say that this pandemic is finished, and that starting Monday, we can simply throw caution to the wind and act as we did before we even heard of Covid,” he remarked.
“However, if we are cautious and continue to respect this disease and its ongoing threat, it is quite likely – practically all scientists agree on this – that the worst of the pandemic has passed us by.
“We’ll be dealing with the current wave of the Delta variation for the next few days and weeks, and there will unfortunately be additional hospitalization.”Brinkwire Summary News”.
