UK logs 54,095 new covid cases and 75 deaths


The United Kingdom has reported more than 54,095 new cases of Covid-19 and another 75 deaths, the government informed on Sunday.

The new cases include reinfections of COVID-19 in England and Northern Ireland more than 90 days after a previous positive test.


The total is based on positive laboratory-confirmed PCR tests in all four UK countries, the most positive lateral flow tests reported in England, and all lateral flow tests written in Northern Ireland.

These figures now also include deaths in England following possible reinfections of Covid-19.

In total, 17,803,325 million people in the UK have tested positive for coronavirus, and 158,318 people have died within 28 days of a positive test.

Separate data published by the Office for National Statistics show there have been 180,000 deaths registered in the UK, where Covid-19 was mentioned on the death certificate.

Covid guidelines that need to be followed by the citizens of the UK

  • one should be vaccinated and get their booster dose
  • Consider wearing a face-mask in crowded, enclosed venues
  • Get tested and self-isolate if needed

The few covid measures left in England to include:

  • people with Covid symptoms or tested positive must self-isolate for ten days (or five full days following two negative lateral flow test results)
  • Venues or public places can choose to ask people to show an NHS Covid Pass or covid certificate.
  • face coverings are still mandatory in health and care settings, including hospitals, GP surgeries and pharmacies
  • some shops have asked customers to keep wearing face coverings and maintain social distancing, and they are required on public transport in London
  • in some circumstances, local authorities can instruct face coverings in the communal areas of schools
