Coronavirus: Cases fall in all four UK nations while total vaccinated exceeds 30 million

As England prepares for the further easing of lockdown measures on Monday, rates of COVID-19 have been falling again across the UK.

Falling cases, falling deaths and rising vaccinations are likely to see more lockdown measures ease over the coming weeks - a prospect supported by the latest Coronavirus data. On Sunday, the UK reported 3,862 cases of COVID-19, which is the lowest daily total in more than 6 months. The weekend has also seen the UK pass another major milestone in its vaccination programme, with there now being 30 million people across the four nations that have received at least one dose of a vaccine against COVID-19.
