The UK’s vaccination programme is beginning to break the link between Covid-19 cases and deaths, scientists tracking the epidemic say. A study found infections had fallen by roughly two-thirds since February, before beginning to level off. While the decline in cases has stalled – probably because people are beginning to mix more – deaths did not follow the same pattern. After a significant fall between February and March, cases were “just about flat”, says Prof Stephen Riley at Imperial College London, one of the study’s authors.
