PHE statement on Bolton / Indian variant(s).

Seems to me that it's likely that this variant is more contagious still than the Kent variant judging by increase in numbers in Bolton. The good news though is that there doesn't seem to be any suggestion of vaccine evasion...so get your vaccine when its offered and you'll be OK. That's the assumption I am operating on anyway.

Unfortunately another rise in the North West - of only 9 day to day happily - despite the fall in UK numbers and a large fall for Yorkshire. But it is the fourth successive rise from 224 four days ago.

So for the first time in a while the NW is the most infected region in the UK today

380 cases v 350 for Yorkshire and 252 for London.

East Midlands on 270 is the third highest in England now. Its biggest numbers in about a month.

Case numbers hardly change day to day, week to week, since the 12 April reopening.

Meanwhile hospital admissions continue to reduce, which is great.

Yep, all contributing to providing more time for the vaccine programme to keep winning the race hopefully!
