Covid cases among people in 20s at highest-ever recorded level for any age group


Covid case rates among people in their twenties are at the highest-ever recorded level for all age groups in England, the latest figures show, setting a new record for the pandemic.

Between 12 and 18 July, a total of 1154.7 infections per 100,000 people were being recorded among those aged 20 to 29, according to data from Public Health England (PHE).

This is the highest figure recorded for any age cohort since the beginning of the pandemic, said Dr Yvonne Doyle, medical director at PHE.

“Everyone in this age group should come forward and get their two doses of the vaccine to make sure they have the best chance of being protected,” she said.

The lowest case rates have been recorded in those aged 80 and above, with a 7-day rate of 60.6 per 100,000.
