As of 9am on 6 July, 285,768 people have tested positive for COVID-19 in the UK (pillar 1 and 2). As of 5pm on 5 July, of those tested positive for coronavirus in the UK, 44,236 have died across all settings. Further information is available here:



  • Our latest weekly surveillance report published 2 July. Also, positive cases from testing in the wider community (also known as pillar 2) at UTLA and LTLA level in England have been added to the daily COVID-19 dashboard. Although this does not affect the total number of cases in England, it shows an increase in the UTLA/ LTLA figures which have previously only included pillar 1.
  • The PHE dashboard can be found here:  Our daily reporting includes deaths that have occurred in all settings where there has been a positive COVID-19 test, including hospitals, care homes and the wider community.  The report also includes case rates per 100,000 resident population at lower tier local authority level.
