Healthcare

According to the latest figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS), Covid-19 infections are continuing to increase across the United Kingdom. An estimated 2-7 million people in the United Kingdom has the Covid-19 virus, and about one in 30 people had the virus in the past week.

This increase is being driven by the rapidly-spreading sub-variants of Omicron Covid-19, which are called as BA.4 and BA.5. The people in the United Kingdom are still able to catch the infection even if they have had Covid-19 before. But according to the latest analysis of UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) show the covid-19 vaccine jabs are providing help to protect against serious illness.

The health officials of the United Kingdom are now urging anyone who is eligible but has not yet received a vaccine in the past six months for getting one dose, specifically people over the age of 75 years old, who are at more risk from severe disease.
