An authoritative expert said that school closures due to summer vacation may be one of the reasons for the decline in coronavirus cases across the UK.
Dr. Mike Tildesley, a member of the Scientific Pandemic Influenza Modeling Group (Spi-M) that advises ministers, said he is “cautiously optimistic” about reducing cases, but only time will Prove whether the third wave of Covid is “reversing”.
An infectious disease expert from the University of Warwick told BBC Radio 4’s today’s program, “Any case where there is a significant decline is good news.

“Before we really know whether we see everything is improving, the other thing we need to consider is the hospitalization and, of course, the death.”
