Asked if she thinks she owes the NHS an apology for any “reputational damage” that Test and Trace may have caused, she said: “I think that one of the challenges for the thousands of people who are doing a really brilliant job in the NHS, in other parts of the public sector and the private sector, on NHS Test and Trace, is that everyone rather wishes we were a silver bullet that would just solve the Covid crisis single-handedly, which sadly was never going to be the case.”

New data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) shows Covid-19 infections across England are levelling off but there are still wide regional variations. Its Covid-19 Infection Survey is based on more than 712,000 tests gathered from households across the UK over the last six weeks, regardless of whether people have symptoms. It found an estimated 633,000 people in private households in England had Covid-19 between 15 and 21 November, a slight decrease from 664,700 the week before.

The ONS reported rates have increased in the East Midlands but have continued to decrease in the North West during lockdown. Infection rates in the West Midlands, East of England, London, South East and South West now also appear to be decreasing, with the highest rates seen in Yorkshire and the Humber, the North West and the North East.

When it comes to age groups, only secondary school age children are seeing a rise in infection rates, while they have dropped in adults aged 35 and over. Among very young children rates have levelled off, as they have for young adults. In total, around one in 85 people infected with coronavirus in the week of 15 to 21 November.

Rates of infection have decreased in Northern Ireland and Wales in recent weeks, the ONS said, but appear to have increased in Scotland in the most recent week.

Ruth Studley, head of analysis for the Covid-19 Infection Survey, said: “At a national level in England, the overall number of infections appears to be levelling off at around one in 85 people who would test positive in the community.”

Chanel Métiers D'Art Was The Celebration Of Feminism, Creativity And Pearls We Needed In 2020 .
'This show, more than any other, shows the magic creatives weave'There’s never been a more vital time for Chanel’s Métiers d’Art show. A quiet, rarefied collection that falls in the first week of December, it has, in many ways, always been more a celebration of people than clothes. It is Chanel’s genuflection to the artisan houses and makers who craft the buttons, feathers, hats, pleats, and all-round magic that adorn Chanel’s collections. They are the creatives who can make collars as delicate and delicious as curls of white chocolate from French lace; costume jewellers who can make a one-inch button as beautiful and unique as a red diamond.
