Covid case decline is slowing down in England, new figures show


The latest coronavirus infection data has showed the number of cases is continuing to fall across the UK but the rate could be slowing, with some parts of England showing a potential increase.

During the two weeks to 13 March, the percentage of children aged over 11 testing positive in England has decreased. But the ONS said the rate of decline has slowed in all groups except for those aged between 25 to 34 and 50 to 69-year-olds.

Overall, 160,200 people were estimated to have the virus, equivalent to one in every 340 people in England.

The percentage of people testing positive has decreased in the West Midlands, East of England, South West and London during the latest week but the ONS said across all other regions the trend was uncertain.
