‘Unbreakable link between cases, hospitalisation and death is now being broken’ – health sec

Written by on 05/03/2021

The “unbreakable link from cases, to hospitalisations, and then deaths is now being broken” by the vaccination programme, the health secretary has said.

The latest government data shows that cases have fallen 34% in the last 7 days.

A 29% fall in hospital admissions over the same period is the fastest decrease at any point in the pandemic.

Deaths have fallen by 41% in the last week.

Matt Hancock also said two-fifths of the adult population of the UK have now received their first dose of the vaccine.

“The vaccine is protecting the NHS, saving lives right across the country. The country’s plan is working,” he said.
