The UK Ministry of Health reported 1,295 new cases of COVID-19 this Tuesday, a decrease from data seen in recent days but which has brought the UK to over 337,000 infections since the pandemic began – just behind Spain in Europe.
In particular, authorities have recorded 337,168 cases, of which 41,504 correspond to deceased people, three more than on Tuesday. However, the death toll rises to 57,200 when death certificates related to COVID-19 are taken into account, according to the BBC.
The most recent equilibrium coincides with the reopening of schools in England and Wales as part of a gradual return to normal, which also implies a gradual return to the work environment promoted even by Boris Johnson’s own government.
The Prime Minister was “absolutely confident” that the authorities will know how to deal with new outbreaks in anticipation of the “large numbers” of people who will return to physical labor from September.
