The number of new coronavirus infections reported in the UK on the 26th was 24,950, down from 29,173 the day before, the lowest level since the 4th of this month. With the sixth consecutive day of decline, the recent spread of infection due to the delta mutant epidemic may have peaked.
The total number of newly infected people in the past week was over 250,000, a decrease of more than 20% from the previous week.
In England, the regulation to prevent infection was almost lifted on the 19th, but since it was just after the number of infected people started to increase again, the trend after that was drawing attention from health professionals and financial markets.
The government has determined that the high domestic corona vaccination rate reduces the risk of aggravation.
