UK delivers COVID vaccinations to over 3.5M — higher than number of people testing positive

More
than
3.5
million
people
have
been

vaccinated
against

coronavirus
in
the

UK

surpassing
the
number
who
have
tested
positive
for
the
virus,
latest
government
figures
show.

A
total
of
3,559,179
people
have
been
given
their
first
dose
as
of
Friday,
with
447,261
people
having
also
received
their
second
dose.

The

It
brings
the
number
of
deaths
within
28
days
of
a
positive coronavirus test
to
88,590,
while
more
than
3.3
million
cases
have
been
recorded.

The
latest
daily
death
figure
is
the
UK’s
third-highest
of
the
pandemic,
although
the
figures
are
based
on
the
dates
when
deaths
were
reported
and
not
when
they
occurred.

The
recent
surge
in
cases
and
deaths
has
prompted
officials
to
take
restrictions
further
by
ending
the travel
corridor
system.

People
travelling
from
some
countries
with
low
coronavirus
case
rates
had
been
allowed
to
enter
the
UK
without
self-isolating,
but
all
foreign
travellers
will
have
to
quarantine
for
10
days
from
Monday

or
receive
a
negative
test
at
least
five
days
after
landing.
