More than 27.6 million people in Britain, well over half of the adult population, have received at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine, official data showed on Sunday after a daily record of 844,285 doses was administered the day before.

Some 2.2 million people have received both doses of a vaccine, the data shows.

This mammoth team effort shows the best of Britain, tweeted UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock hailing the second record daily number of doses given in as many days.

Previously, the government had given a higher figure for the daily number of vaccine doses given on Saturday. Hancock said the figure was revised down after adjusted data arrived from Scotland, but the new figure was still a UK daily record.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has urged everyone to accept a vaccine when asked to receive one.

The daily release of Covid-19 data in the UK showed 33 new deaths were recorded on Sunday, the lowest figure since October and down from peaks of more than 1,000 deaths per day in January and February.

The total number of deaths over seven days was 640, a decrease of 37% from the previous seven-day period.

The number of new infections also fell, with 5,312 cases reported on Sunday and a total of 38,145 over seven days, down 4% from the previous seven days.

Since the start of the pandemic, a total of 126,155 people have died in the UK within 28 days of testing positive for Covid-19, the highest official toll in Europe and the fifth in the world.

The UK vaccine rollout is the fastest of any major economy, although the government has warned it will slow down next month due to a tight supply.

Despite the slowdown, progress is still in line with official targets, meaning that unless anything changes, the government’s four-step plan to ease the lockdown is expected to unfold as advertised. (Reuters)
