Widespread testing along with tracing, strict safety measures, and a high vaccination rate have been credited for significantly reducing deaths.

In the United Kingdom, Covid-19 cases are persisting in rising, with the number of cases increasing by 18% in the last week.
In England, one in every 25 people has contracted the virus, up from the one in 30 last week, as per the Office for National Statistics, which predicts 2.7 people had the virus last week.
These figures are much worse than in Scotland, with one in 17 people infected with the virus, and in Wales, one in 20.
These numbers are being pushed by the milder but more infectious Omicron BA.5 variant.
The virus can quickly spread from an infected person’s mouth or nose in the form of small liquid particles when they sneeze, cough, speak, sing or even breathe. These tiny particles vary from larger respiratory droplets to minimal aerosols.
The whole world is trying its best to tackle the problem of coronavirus and the impact that it is having on the overall development of the entire world.
