Covid-19 in the UK: How many coronavirus cases are there in my area?

There have been more than 9.6 million confirmed cases of coronavirus in the UK and more than 143,000 people have died, government figures show.

Don't accidentally enjoy it all, or if the luck is bad today, play SLOT losses, you should play as much as we set it out, and you'll have to quit too.

However, these figures include only people who have died within 28 days of testing positive for coronavirus.

So far, about 88% of people aged 12 and over in the UK have had their first vaccine dose, while 80% have had their second and 23% have had a booster dose.

Daily cases remain high
The average number of daily confirmed cases has bounced around since mid-July and has been rising again over the last few days.

A further 38,263 confirmed cases were announced on Wednesday.

NHS leaders have called for the reintroduction of some Covid restrictions, such as mandatory face coverings in crowded and enclosed spaces, to avoid a winter crisis.

However, the government has said there are currently no plans to activate the so-called Plan B for winter.

It is thought the infection rate in the first peak of the virus in spring last year was much higher than was evident from the reported number of cases. Testing capacity was then too limited to detect the true number of daily cases.

The red areas on the map below show the places currently seeing the highest number of cases per 100,000 people.

Vaccine rollout continuing
More than 50 million people, or about 88% of those aged 12 and over in the UK, have now received a first dose of a vaccine.

The number of people who have received a second vaccine dose is now more than 46 million, or 80% of people aged 12 and over.

A booster campaign, for people aged over 50 or belonging to a number of other groups is being extended to people aged 40 to 49.

While the uptake of first and second doses has dropped off there has been a steep rise in people having booster doses.

More than 11 million of these doses have been administered in England so far. In Scotland, 1.2 million people have had their booster shot, while that figure is over 690,000 in Wales and it is more than 243,000 in Northern Ireland.
