latest news


  • Deaths involving COVID-19 fall in England and Wales โ€“ ONS

There were 211 deaths registered in the UK involving COVID-19 in the week ending 3 June 2022, according to the ONS. This was 258 fewer than the previous week, accounting for around 1 in every 37 deaths (2.7%). However, registrations in this week were impacted by the bank holidays on 2 and 3 June.

There were 7,881 total deaths registered in the UK in the latest week, which is 16% below the five-year average, but this has been impacted by the June bank holidays.

Of the 186 deaths involving COVID-19 in England and Wales in the week to 3 June 2022, 58.1% had the disease recorded as the underlying cause of death, compared with 64.9% in the previous week.

we need your help


Since February 2022, the UKHSA has slowly reduced the publishing of its daily COVID updates, following the UK Governmentโ€™s narrative that we should all โ€œlive with the virusโ€.

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 doesnโ€™t take a break at weekends.
It doesnโ€™t infect people from time to time.
It doesnโ€™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 โ€“ probably more accurate than the UK Governmentโ€™s own data since free testing has ended in England, ย and the ONS COVID Infection Survey estimates.

Please, support our work through our crowdfunding to help us to continue our COVID reporting: Donate now.
