England invites all adults to get their Covid-19 vaccines

It finds that deaths are not high, as the case fatality rate remains low for Delta.

No coronavirus-related deaths have been recorded within the 24-hour reporting period up to Friday morning.

The Delta variant now accounts for nearly all of the UK's coronavirus cases, according to Public Health England.

Of the 75,953, some 70,856 have been in England, 4,659 in Scotland, 254 in Northern Ireland and 184 in Wales.

This would lead to more hospitalisations and deaths, and risks straining the NHS, which is why it's vital that people take up their vaccine offer and continue to stick to the rules, he said.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Monday pushed back the full re-opening of England from lockdown until July 19 because of a rise in cases, but also accelerated his vaccination plans, pledging to give every adult a first dose by the same date.

Keystone pipeline canceled after Biden stands firm against permit
Last year, Premier Jason Kenney announced Alberta would invest $1.5 billion in equity as well as a $6 billion loan guarantee. Pipes that were to be used for the Keystone XL pipeline are stored in a field near Dorchester, Neb., last December.

"I certainly think that they ought to, that's definitely our position here, but there is a very big step taken when you move into compulsion".

Some 33,630 cases of the mutation were recorded in the last week and PHE said "the most recent data show 99% of sequenced and genotyped cases across the country are the Delta variant". The increase is primarily in younger age groups, a large proportion of which were unvaccinated but are now being invited to receive the vaccine.

However, deaths tend to happen some weeks after infections and the majority of cases were confirmed less than 28 days ago.

Public Health England's latest figures show that 928 cases were confirmed county-wide as of Wednesday (June 16th).

The Delta VOC is seen as the main factor behind a feared third wave of the pandemic in the United Kingdom, with the government delaying lifting all lockdown restrictions by a month until July 19 to prevent hospitals being overwhelmed.

This is up from one in 560 in the previous week and the highest level since the week to April 10.
