S ince 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”. They now report only once a week. We, at PMP Magazine, have decided to continue to publish the latest COVID data available every day using the data from the ZOE COVID Study and the ONS Infection Survey to understand what is still happening with the pandemic.

▪ The Latest

The current ZOE COVID Study positive symptomatic case estimate is 147,914 new cases. It is predicted that at least 2,287,788 people have symptomatic COVID today in the UK.


  • Latest estimate: 147,914 new cases (-10.2% in a week)
  • 7-day estimate: 1,065,380 cases (-11.8%)
  • Daily average: 152,197 people infected on average every day
  • Currently predicted to have COVID: 2,287,788 people
  • It is estimated that there have been 60,401,040 cases in the UK since 1-Jan-2022
