Surge testing at Wakefield and Pontefract after surge in Delta variant cases

A total of 11 new Covid deaths have been recorded in England and none in the Yorkshire and the Humber, according to the latest NHS figures.

Some 8,895 covid deaths have been recorded on death certificates in the Yorkshire and Humber since the start of the pandemic.

The time taken to receive positive results is one of the potential factors in the delay between the occurrence of a death and its registration.

As of April 28, 2020, NHS England and NHS Improvement also began reporting the number of patient deaths in which there was no positive Covid-19 test result, but is documented as a direct or underlying cause of death. in the death certification process.

Figures from the latest reporting period show that there were two such deaths in England.

The latest figures come when an estimated six in 10 adults in the UK have received both doses of the Covid-19 vaccine, the latest figures show.

A total of 31,740,115 second doses have been delivered since the vaccine’s launch began in December of last year.

This equates to 60.3 percent of all people over the age of 18.

Of the four UK nations, Wales has the highest proportion of fully vaccinated adults, with 61.6 percent receiving both injections (1,553,091 second doses).

England is just behind with 60.4% (26,745,666 second doses), followed by Scotland with 59.0% (2,617,450) and Northern Ireland with 56.7% (823,908 second doses).

In response to the figures, which have been released by the four UK health agencies, Vaccine Minister Nadhim Zahawi told a press conference from Downing Street tonight (Wednesday 23 June) that two doses of one Covid-19 vaccines are “absolutely vital” to ensure the fullest possible protection that jabs can offer.

He said: “It is extraordinary that three out of five people have been vaccinated with both strokes.

“No matter where you live, where you come from, your background or your beliefs, as long as you are over the age of 18, there is a vaccine available for you. I urge all eligible to receive their vaccination and help us get back to normal.” .

A recent analysis by Public Health England suggests that Covid-19 vaccines are highly effective against hospitalization for the Delta variant of the coronavirus after both doses, with the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine 96% effective and the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine with 92% effective.

The Westminster government has said it intends to offer a first dose to all adults in England by July 19.

The total number of first doses in the UK reported on Wednesday (43,448,680) is 299,837 higher than the total reported on Tuesday, but this includes 48 hours of data for England, not the usual 24 hours.

This is because no data was reported for England on Tuesday due to an IT issue affecting the processing of the vaccines, NHS England said.

The day-to-day increase in the second dose of vaccines – 250,875 – also includes 48 hours of data for England.

According to the Government so far, a total of 71,672,208 Covid-19 vaccines have been administered as reported until Sunday, June 13.

Of those 41,698,429 was the total number of people who received the first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine, while 29,973,779 people received the second dose of the Covid-19 vaccine.
