Covid infections show signs of plateauing in UK

The number of people infected with Covid in the UK is showing signs of plateauing, data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) suggests.

Nearly 4.9 million people would test positive, which is about 25,000 lower than last week’s record high.

Infections appear to be falling in Scotland, which has had some of the highest Covid rates in the UK.

A study published earlier this week also suggested cases may have peaked in children and young adults.

The ONS infection survey tests thousands of people, whether or not they have symptoms, so is not affected by the end of free testing in England. It is seen as the best measure of the spread of coronavirus in the UK.

Sarah Crofts, from the ONS, said: “While infections remain high, there are early signs in our latest data that they may no longer be increasing in some parts of the UK.

“It is too early to say if infections have peaked in England and Scotland.”

Infections have been soaring recently, setting record highs. This has been driven by the highly contagious form of Omicron called BA.2 which is now thought to make up 90% of infections.

In the week leading up to 2 April, the ONS estimates, one in 13 people in England had coronavirus, about 7.6% of the population – the same as last week.

The number of people in hospital with Covid also shows signs of levelling off after nearly doubling over the course of March. The number of hospital patients in the UK appears to have plateaued at about 20,000.

More than half of the patients in England have been admitted for other reasons, but are testing positive for Covid.

However, hospital bosses have warned the health service is under “enormous strain” with Covid, other conditions, difficulties discharging patients and “severe” shortages of staff leading to backlogs.
