Tim Spector OBE, lead scientist on the ZOE COVID Study app and Professor of Genetic Epidemiology at King’s College London, comments on the latest data: “While I predicted we may have reached the peak of COVID infections by now, it looks like this is only the case in the North West of England and West Midlands where the Delta variant got an early foothold.

ZOE COVID Study data indicates rates are no longer increasing in these regions, but the rate of change is now going up in the east of the country.

“Places like the East Midlands, Aberdeen, the North East and NE London are seeing the highest rates of change, and I expect them to follow what we’ve seen in the North West over the next few weeks.”

According to the latest data, cases continue to increase in holiday hotspots like Cornwall, Devon and along the South Coast in Brighton and Bournemouth.
