Fewer Britons are getting ill with Covid every day than at any point since a symptom-tracking study began last year, with fewer than 1,000 cases now cropping up daily.
Published figures estimating 971 cases per day are now lower than in July and August last year when lockdown rules were almost completely lifted even though no-one was vaccinated.
Using reports from a million users of a mobile app, the study suggested the number of new cases per day had dropped another seven per cent in a week following a 10 per cent fall the week before. It adds to overwhelming evidence that coronavirus has all but disappeared in Britain.
'Data continues to suggest Covid has stabilised at very low levels, similar to rates seen last summer,' said Professor Tim Spector, the King's College epidemiologist who runs the study.
In England the number of people developing symptoms each day remained the same as last week's estimate at 756, but NHS Test & Trace data showed it falling again, down by eight per cent in the most recent week.
