The United Kingdom recorded this Friday 3402 new cases of infection with the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 and 52 deaths by covid-19, according to the official British Government portal with daily data on the pandemic.

In light of Thursday’s balance sheet, there is one more daily death counted, but 1077 fewer infections.

Since the beginning of the covid-19 pandemic, the UK has totaled 126,816 deaths out of 4,353,668 confirmed infection cases.

By Thursday 31.3 million people had been vaccinated against covid-19, of which 4.9 million had completed the vaccination, that is, they had the second dose that is administered in the country with an interval of three weeks to three months .

Earlier this week, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that April would be “the month of the second dose” because, due to reduced reserves, priority is being given to second doses, delaying enlargement to other age groups.

More than 60% of the adult population is already immunized, with the Government setting a goal that the first dose should be given to all people over 50 by mid-April and to all adults by the end of July.

British authorities believe that the impact of vaccination is already being felt in reducing mortality and infection rates.
