UKHSA Latest Data – ENGLAND ONLY
- 386 deaths in England [within 28 days of first positive test result for COVID-19] were reported in the last 7 days.
- 66,745 new coronavirus infections in the last 7 days according to the latest England data report - the actual number England-wide is potentially significantly higher.
- 185,510 coronavirus infections have been reported across England in the last 28 days according to data in the latest England data report.
- The number of deaths in England in the past week equates on average to around 55.1 deaths each of the past 7 days. If this was to be the “new normal” for daily deaths caused by COVID-19, then annually this would equate to around 20,127 deaths across England.
- Meanwhile, a total of 1,661 deaths due to COVID-19 have been reported across England in the last 28 days.
- 583 COVID-19 hospital admissions in England occurred on 11 June 2022.
- 4,602 patients suffering from COVID-19 are currently occupying hospital beds in England – reported as of 13 June 2022.
- 128 COVID-19 patients are occupying mechanical ventilation beds in England - according to the data reported on 13 June 2022.
- All three of these healthcare measures continue to be a concern for our under-pressure NHS.
- 865 days since the first infection due to the SARS-CoV-2 virus was reported in Britain (31 January 2020)
- 829 days since the first reported death in Britain (6 March 2020). Coronavirus has now been responsible for infecting around 18.9 million people in England (according to the official reported positive cases data)

■ UK Government’s List of symptoms of COVID-19
After two years without updating its list of just three symptoms of COVID-19 (a high temperature, a new continuous cough and a loss or change to the sense of smell or taste), the NHS has finally updated its list of symptoms of COVID:
😩 Shortness of breath
🥱 Feeling tired or exhausted
🤕 An aching body
🤯 A headache
🤐 A sore throat
🤧 A blocked or runny nose
😞 Loss of appetite
🤮 Feeling sick or being sick
■ ZOE COVID Study’s Top 20 symptoms of COVID-19 (as of 26-May-2022)
we need your help
Since February 2022, the UKHSA has slowly reduced the publishing of its daily COVID updates, following the UK Government’s narrative that we should all “live with the virus”.
England now reports on weekdays, Scotland reports on Mondays and Thursdays only, Wales reports on Thursdays only, and Northern Ireland has stopped reporting altogether.
The virus doesn’t take a break at weekends.
It doesn’t infect people from time to time.
It doesn’t stop at a border either.
The virus still spreads and kills people every day in the UK and around the world. COVID-19 is NOT over.
We, at PMP, have decided to continue to publish the latest COVID data available every day, especially the Zoe COVID Study estimates – probably more accurate than the UK Government’s own data since free testing has ended in England, and the ONS COVID Infection Survey estimates.
Please, support our work through our crowdfunding to help us to continue our COVID reporting: Donate now.
