In the week to 24 April, infections fell in all four nations of the UK and were 20 times lower than in January.

It comes as a new UK study has found very small numbers of people have been admitted to hospital with Covid several weeks after having one vaccine dose.

More than half of the UK population has now received a first vaccine jab.

Meanwhile, BBC analysis shows about 22 million people are now living in areas where there were no Covid deaths in April.
