This is a first for six months: no death linked to Covid-19 was recorded on Sunday March 28 in London (United Kingdom). “This figure illustrates the spectacular improvement in the situation throughout the United Kingdom, adds journalist Matthieu Boisseau, in duplex from the English capital. There are on average 5,000 new cases of coronavirus every day, compared to 60,000 at the start of January.“Hospitals for their part”are no longer saturated“, while the number of deaths has”dropped a lot“, adds the journalist.
How to explain this spectacular drop? “This is primarily due to the vaccination campaign, which is progressing very quickly, (…) 30 million first doses administered, this partly protects the population, and it is also due to national confinement“, which lasts “for three months“and allowed”to break the dynamics of this hitherto uncontrollable English variant“, details the journalist. If the pubs and stores are still closed,”gradual deconfinement is well underway“. The English can indeed since Monday March 29 meet outside”per group of six people maximum“, specifies Matthieu Boisseau.
