The latest figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) have shown that Covid-19 infection levels are continuing to fall across the UK.

New data suggest that one in 60 people in private households in England had Covid-19 in the week leading up to November 6, down from one in 50 in the previous week.

One in 60 is the equivalent of about 925,400 people and is slightly below the proportion estimated to have coronavirus at the peak of the second wave in early January, suggesting infection levels are still high.

In Wales, about one in 45 people is estimated to have had Covid-19 in the week to November 6, down from one in 40 the previous week.

In Northern Ireland, the figure is about one in 75, which is down from one in 65 in the previous week.

Finally in Scotland the number of people infected has fallen from one in 80 to one in 85 over the same period.

The ONS said rates in England have decreased in the latest week for all age groups, except for those from school year 12 to age 24, and for people aged 35 to 49, where the trend is uncertain.

Rates remained highest for those in school years seven to 11, at 4.8%.
