Britain today recorded another 13,430 coronavirus infections and 603 deaths as the second wave of the disease continues to tail off.

Department of Health statistics show Covid cases were slightly higher today than the 11,299 posted last Monday, which was considered a blip because it was unusually low. The UK's outbreak has been shrinking for more than a fortnight because the lockdown thwarted the virus.

Deaths have only just started to flatten out because of the lag it can take between patients getting infected and becoming severely ill. Another 603 lab-confirmed coronavirus fatalities were confirmed today, down slightly on the 608 last week. 

Separate Government data — which looks at when a death occurred as opposed to when it was recorded — show that fatalities started to drop after November 21. 

Meanwhile, slightly older statistics — which include suspected deaths as well as lab-confirmed ones — show the curve is slowing. A weekly report from the Office for National Statistics showed the number of people dying with Covid-19 in the week ending November 20 was 2,697, up from 2,466 the week before.
