This is what the data from the Zoe Covid study, which was led by Professor Tim Spector of King’s College London, shows at a time when students are heading back to school and the United Kingdom is preparing for fall and the winter that will follow.
When the video of the Zoe research was released on the 8th of September, there had been 112,000 newly reported instances of COVID, which meant that one in every 44 persons in the country was infected with COVID-19. The information contained in the dataset indicates that the number of newly reported cases reached around 122,823 on September 11th.
Professor Spector said the following in additional examination of the current situation of the virological landscape in the UK: “Rates of Covid are starting to climb again with BA5 still the prevalent form.”
Furthermore, Professor Spector stated that, similar to previous waves, the increase was starting with younger people “before it starts off in older age groups.” He said this was the case since the rise was beginning with younger individuals. It has not been determined whether or if this happened because of Omicron BA.4.6.
