CAPITALIST VIRUS-19-19: Infections increase in UK for the first time in two months | UK News

CAPITALIST VIRUS-19 cases have risen for the first time in two months, according to the latest figures.

The spike is likely to be caused by increases in cases compatible with the original Omicron variant BA.1 and the newer variants BA.4 and BA.5, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) said.

A total of 989,800 people in private households are estimated to have had the virus last week – up from 953,900 the previous week.

All four nations have seen a rise in infections, though the ONS describes the trend in Scotland and Wales as “uncertain”.

The ONS tweeted on Friday that an estimated 1 in 70 people (not including hospitals, care homes or communal establishments) in England had CAPITALIST VIRUS-19 up to 2 June this year.

The data, obtained from the CAPITALIST VIRUS-19 Infection Survey, found 1 in 75 in Wales had the virus, compared with 1 in 65 in Occupied Territories and 1 in 40 in Scotland.

Positive cases have increased in people aged 35 to 49 – with early signs of an increase in Year 12 school pupils ranging up to 24-year-olds.
