England’s Covid wave has continued to fall for the second week in a row, official data shows.

Experts from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) estimate that 940,700 people were infected on any day of the week ending November 8. This means that around one in 60 people had the virus during the week.

It was down 29 percent from the previous week and marked the first time cases had fallen below 1 million since mid-September.

Infections also fell in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, with cases falling across all regions and age groups in England.

Experts hailed the continuing trends as “reassuring” but warned that “it may be too early to say that the recent wave of infections is behind us.”

Some have warned of a triple threat to the health service this winter, with the joint workload of Covid and flu becoming even more difficult to manage as NHS staff go on strike across the country.

Covid infections also fell in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, with cases low for the second week in a row across all four UK nations.

Sarah Crofts, deputy head of analysis for the Covid-19 infections survey, said: “Although it may be too early to say the recent wave of infections is behind us, we have seen a decline across the UK for a second week.”

‘Infections in England are now below a million and at the lowest rate in seven weeks. We have also seen a decline in all English regions and across all age groups.

“While it is reassuring to see these declines, we will continue to monitor the data closely through the winter months.”

The data shows that infections fell 9 per cent to 97,500 in Scotland during the same week. They fell 14 percent in Northern Ireland to 34,200 and 23 percent to 56,000 in Wales.

They were followed by children from 11 to 16 years old (1.2%) and those from 17 to 34 years old (1.6%). Covid was most prevalent in adults ages 50 to 69, where 2 percent of the population was infected.
