Britain’s Omicron wave continued to collapse today as Covid cases fell once again and NHS hospital admissions remained flat.
Another 109,133 positive tests were logged across the UK over the past 24 hours, down 39 per cent on the tally a week ago. It is the eighth consecutive day that new infections have fallen week-on-week and the lowest daily total in more than a fortnight.
Deaths — which are a lagging indicator of the outbreak— have been slowly creeping up in recent days, with 335 more victims registered today. It is unclear if reporting issues over the holidays are still at play but the seven-day average number of fatalities sits at 261 now, compared to 99 a fortnight ago.
Meanwhile, latest hospital data shows there were 2,184 admissions for the virus-infected patients on January 9, up 5 per cent compared to the previous. Daily admissions have fallen on three of the past seven days.
