Corona-virus infections still high, but spread may be slowing, as a study finds.

TThe ONS study is considered highly reliable because it repeatedly swabs a representative sample of households. There are early signs that the second wave of corona-virus may have started slowing in the week before lock-down was announced, according to a study tracking Britain’s outbreak. The Office for National Statistics (ONS) infection survey estimates that there were 618,700 people in England with Covid-19 in the week ending October 31 — the day the prime minister announced the lock-down. This was up from 568,100 during the week ending October 23, a rise of 9 per cent. However, cases had risen by 31 per cent, from 433,300 in the week to October 16.

The ONS estimated there were about 45,700 new cases of Covid-19 a day in the latest week, which was down from 51,900 the week before.
