10,000 a day contracting Covid-19 in UK says Health Minister Hancock, as he urges people to download new tracing app

This has to be a joke right???

10,000 a day…

Up to 10,000 people a day are contracting Covid-19 in Britain, Health Secretary Matt Hancock has said, adding that the number is still fewer than the “100,000 per day” estimated during the spring peak.
The statement came after recorded infections rose by 6,178 overnight, the highest daily spike in coronavirus cases since May 1.

The government estimates that “it is under 10,000 people a day getting the disease,” Hancock told Sky News on Thursday. “That’s too high but it is still much lower than in the peak,” he added.

“The massive testing capability we’ve got helps to find where the virus is,” the secretary noted. He added that the government can “do the contact tracing for everyone who has tested positive and find who they’ve been in contact with.”
