The number of people in England estimated to have Covid-19 has dropped 40 per cent in a week, according to new figures.
The Office for National Statistics (ONS) data, which covers private households, shows an estimated 54,200 people were likely to have tested positive for Covid-19 in the week to April 24, down from 90,000 the previous week.
This means around one in 1,010 people in private households in England had Covid-19 in the week to April 24, down from one in 610.
It is the lowest figure since the week to September 5, when the estimate stood at one in 1,400.

  • They've made their billions themselves and in assisting their friends and families companies and businesses in every way so now they don't care about figures and will down play infection rates. Infection rates are dropping because before they needed everywhere to be stocked for vaccines for people to take. Suddenly to show it's worked they now need to say that infection rates are low

Clapping an empty NHS a national embarrassment. Summer's coming. Everyone needs to be out getting fit, not couped up getting fat. Wake up.

  • Before Covid, whenever the mainstream media showed the British public, Mslms were no where to be seen. They were only aired if it had to do with extremism. Since covid19, suddenly Mslms are in almost every thumbnail depicting the British public. This a subtle way of associating Mslms with the virus. People subconsciously begin to assume that Mslms are the virus spreaders. Fueling further hatred towards them. Well done Evening Standard you have done us proud👏

    • give it a few years and we’ll have a vaccine effective enough to fight against all the variants. i’m still getting over the fact that they made a few in under a year lol

      Kaitlyn SanghaKaitlyn SanghaDay ago
    • @Kaitlyn Sangha no, I agree with you. In fact, vaccines are Ok, but not very good against current variants and vaccines are basically ineffective against E484K mutation, so really even if Covid doesn't mutate much more, we are still going to see A LOT more death, however more mutations and we could see even more deaths potentially.

    • @MrNurdiboy Am I better than them, no. Am I smarter than them, probably not. The one thing I did do was pray to avoid deception. That doesn't make me better, just better prepared. You think I'm being sanctimonious because you too, it seems, have not heeded the scriptural warnings about the end of days and what they're going to be like, you also haven't looked into the beast system or the mark of the beast, or the Pharisees, or Biblical history, or modern history.. . . . If you had, you wouldn't say those things to me, STUDY and show yourself approved! Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. This IS the falling away, the apostasy and great deception, you either see it or you don't. If you don't, ask why. Are you believing men? These men who agree with Bill Gates and Claus Shwaab, who echo Fauci and Biden! These men of God who think that changing your bodies chemistry is okay!? You keep calling me sanctimonious. I love you enough to tell you the truth and you lay a trap at my feet! God bless you with wisdom! Open your eyes!

All you need is a "COVID positive" sample, take it to a contract lab with NGS capabilities and run it through a sequencer to verify it is one and the same genetic code as the ones publicly available.

Call me 'high minded' but I prefer to debate on the merits of an argument rather than resorting to name calling. And I suffer from inflammatory bowel disease why I have received both doses already (along with 15 million others)....not sure why that makes me a liar or stupid.

      Vikesh RaiVikesh Rai7 hours ago
    • @Vikesh Rai You need to be less high minded. In my line of work i must understand many things... Given your supposed level of knowledge on this subject the fact that you tell me you have had both doses gives me the impression that you are either not very bright or not being completely truthful. I wonder if you would say that under oath when I ask in a court of law. Given the current awakening of the general public I suspect we will soon be busy prosecuting many suspects over their handling of this whole affair, politicians, civil servants National health management , doctors and so on. Many will receive very long custodial sentences.

    • ​@Lisa Ritchie I didn't say public concerns were invalid. But there's a difference between 'public concerns' based on reasonable understanding of the science versus complete falsehoods like 'gene editing' , 'COVID has not been isolated' and 'deaths are only being counted within 28 days' - none of these claims you have been able to remotely defend. Your concerns have to be rooted in something tangible otherwise you are just making wild speculations about things you don't understand. And yes, I have had both doses already.
