U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson says “it is highly likely we will see a growing number of U.K. cases” in a press conference in London on Tuesday.

There were an average of 13 positive cases for every 100,000 people across the month, the survey by Imperial College London found, and the overall reproduction number -- the number of new infections from each case -- was 0.57. Estimates in the middle of the month put it between 0.7 and 1.

The study 's aim was to find ways to hinder the COVID -19 from finding a host in the lungs, intestines, and oral cavity. By using artificial human 3-D tissue models, they simulated and mapped out how each strain may impact COVID -19 infections in the human oral, airway, and intestinal tissues.

However, 18 to 24-year-olds were most likely to test positive, suggesting they were less likely to stick to lockdown rules. People with Asian ethnicity were also more likely to test positive, which could explain the higher death rates in this group. And care home staff and healthcare workers were also more likely to test positive. People who had been in recent contact with a known Covid-19 case were 24 times more likely to test positive.

“It shows the impact our national lockdown efforts have had and demonstrates that we have taken the right actions at the right time,” Health Secretary Matt Hancock said in an emailed statement. “As a country we have made great strides towards beating this virus, but we mustn’t take our foot off the pedal.”
