The lockdown is working
The number of new cases per day has fallen from the peak of 68,000 a month ago, down to less than 20,000. That's great, but is isn't low enough yet to be able to let up.
Hospitalisations are looking better too. The number of patients in hospital with Covid-19 is falling. We're past the peak.
On the vaccination side, ten million people have been vaccinated, that's 15% of the population. This is a better percentage than any other European country, better by a long way.
