Official figures showed nearly six in 10 people under 50 died in England last month.

Data from the UK’s Health Protection Agency (UKHSA) shows that 156 people under the age of 50 died within 28 days of testing positive for COVID and 89 of them did not come forward for a single COVID job.

This figure equates to 57 per cent of deaths in the age group and it is not clear how those unconnected are most at risk of serious consequences after catching Covid.

About 80 percent of 18 to 49-year-olds in England are double-jabbed, which means unvaccinated deaths in a very small group of people.

NHS workers say they are disappointed with the figures, as hospitalizations and deaths among unvaccinated Britons could have been avoided if they had come forward for a vaccine.

It comes as the prime minister this week unveiled plans to expand the booster rollout to 53 million adults across the UK to boost protection against serious illness and death over the winter months.

Data from the UK’s Health Protection Agency shows that 156 people under the age of 50 and under died within 28 days of a positive Covid test in November and 89 of them did not come forward for a single Covid jab. There were 61 deaths among those who were vaccinated, while six deaths did not record immunization status. Uninsured deaths account for 57 per cent of deaths in the age group and it is not clear how those unconnected are most at risk of serious consequences after catching Covid. There is no data available for UK widespread immunization by age, but around 80 per cent of children aged 18 to 49 in England are double-jabbed, meaning a very small number of unvaccinated deaths occur in a very small group of people.

UK daily Covid cases rise 14%, but deaths and hospital admissions drop

Britain’s Covid cases continue to climb with more than 53,000 recorded today, official government data revealed amid fears that the O’Micron edition could wreak havoc on Christmas plans.

Data from the UK Health Protection Agency (UKHSA) showed there were 53,945 positive tests in the past 24 hours, up 14.2 per cent from the 47,240 recorded last Thursday and the highest since July 17.

This was the second day in a row that cases have increased week-on-week and only for the second time in a week that cases have crossed the 50,000-mark.

There is no indication that the Omicron variant is behind the rise, with only 42 cases officially confirmed in the UK so far, but there are signs it may be spreading domestically.

Meanwhile, the death toll from the virus fell to 141 today, down 4.1 per cent from the 147 fatalities recorded last week.

And hospitalizations also dropped, with 700 admissions recorded on Sunday, the latest date data available. This was down six per cent on the 745 seen last week.

UKHSA data, covering the four weeks leading up to 28 November, shows that 3,571 people died across England within 28 days of a positive COVID test. Not all these deaths will be directly from Kovid.

Eight deaths were recorded in people under the age of 18, of whom seven died, while the immunization status of one child was not known.

There were 13 deaths among 18- to 29-year-olds, eight of whom were not vaccinated, while three had received their first dose and two were double-pocketed.

And 35 people died between the ages of 30 and 39. In this group, 24 people were not vaccinated, three were single-jagged and six had both vaccines. Vaccination status was not known for the two people who died.

In the 40 to 49 cohort, 100 deaths were recorded, including 50 unvaccinated, three single-jabbed, 44 fully immunized and three with unknown immunization status.

Nikki Credland, president of the British Association of Critical Care Nurses Times: ‘Employees are disappointed by this. , , [intensive care] One is for a very tough winter and when some penetration can be avoided it is very difficult to cope.’

This comes after Boris Johnson unveiled the UK’s huge new booster vaccine drive on Tuesday.

He promised to give a third dose to all adults by the end of January to protect the nation against the new Omicron supermutant COVID variant.

Mr Johnson announced he was drafting into the Army again to help complete the programme, and would offer GPs an additional £15 for every injection as he pledged to deliver another ‘great British vaccination effort’. I promised.

GPs will be awarded a £5 bonus per shot if they do so on Sunday and a £30 premium for shots given to the most vulnerable who are unable to leave their homes.

The government is recruiting 10,000 more paid vaccine volunteers and ‘tens of thousands’ of volunteers to help with this massive campaign.
