Sky News published this video item, entitled “Explainer: Are COVID cases rising or falling?” – below is their description.
Part of the third wave is now below the radar, with significant numbers of COVID cases not showing up in the official daily statistics.
While the government dashboard shows reported cases fell by a third in the week to 24 July, new data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) shows the real trend was in the opposite direction.
The ONS estimates that almost 952,000 people in the UK were infected during that week – a rise of more than 14% on the previous week.
