England’s Covid wave has continued to crash for the second week in a row, official data shows.

Office for National Statistics (ONS) experts estimate 940,700 people were infected with the virus on any given day in the week ending November 8.

It was down 29 per cent on the previous week and marked the first time cases dipped bellow 1million since mid-September. 

Sarah Crofts, deputy director for Covid-19 Infection Survey Analysis, said: ‘Though it may be too soon to say the recent wave of infections is behind us, we have seen a decrease across the whole of the UK for a second week.

‘Infections in England are now under a million and at the lowest rate in seven weeks. We’ve also seen a decrease across every English region, and in every age group.

‘Whilst it is reassuring to see these decreases, we will continue to monitor the data closely over the winter months.’

Covid infections also fell in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, with cases down for the second week in a row in all four nations of the UK
