In Other Countries
Last week, an estimated 1,415,600 people had coronavirus in the UK, up 425,800 or 43%. The rise is likely to have been caused by the Omicron variants BA.4 and BA.5.
This is the highest estimate for infections since the start of May, but is still well below the record high of 4.9 million at the end of March.
Cases rose in all four nations of the UK – and increased across all age groups.
In England, around one in 50 people had the virus, according to the coronavirus infection survey by the Office for National Statistics (ONS).
Infection rates increased in all English regions, except for the North East where the trend was uncertain, the ONS said.
In Wales and Northern Ireland, one in 45 were positive, and in Scotland one in 30 had the virus.
