The Office for National Statistics (ONS) have said that coronavirus infections have “levelled off” in England after an increase last month.
The ONS reported that between 3 and 9 of August one in 1,900 people of 0.5% became infected in households in England. The figures do not include those in hospital or other settings.
Coronavirus has stopped growing now compared to a slight rise in July across England, ONS figures suggest.
The ONS said, “There is some evidence of a small increase in the percentage of people testing positive for COVID-19 in July, following a low point in June, but this appears to have now levelled off.”
