The UK’s battle with COVID-19 is far from over. While many are trying to enjoy their staycations, the Coronavirus seems is trying its best to retain its hold over the UK, with the new-case averages still over 1000 new-cases every day.
Looking at the (Worldometer) chart which shows daily new-cases, we can see that the current upward-trend in new cases has continued to gain momentum. While the virus looks to have stalled in the last week, we are still seeing on-average over 1000 cases per day. We will have to watch the news cases over the next few weeks to be sure of any downward trend.
Currently, the UK is seeing on-average 1022 new COVID-19 cases daily; a drop of 40 from last weeks average. The UK reported a total of 7157 new COVID-19 cases in the week ending 22nd August. The day with the highest amount of new cases was the 22nd which saw 1288 cases. Two sub-1000 reports early in the week stopped the average from rising considerably higher than last weeks.
Worryingly, although this week new-cases average has dropped; There is a developing trend of daily new case reports being higher than 1000. If this trend continues, the daily averages will rise above 1060 again. In the short-term, the best outlook would be for cases to stall around 800 per day. Any more increases to the amounts of new cases could lead to hospitals losing control and filling up again.
The next week …
IN the next week, let’s hope the end of the Summer holidays doesn’t see Brits taking COVID-19 home with them! September will see the return of kids to school, politicians to work and the potential for another large COVID-19 spike!
Enjoy the rest of the summer folks! Stay clean, cover-up indoors and don’t give COVID-19 a chance to take hold again!
