Professor Lockdown says England do not need another winter lock, while the Cowed case has reached its lowest level since June.
Neil Ferguson, a member of the Sage and an Imperial College London virus specialist, said the number of people returning from school has not increased and is “moderate”.
Figures from the NHS Test & Trace show that last Wednesday, 162,000 cases in the week leading up to September 15, were the lowest number since June 30 – before the end of social distance.
Yesterday’s daily update showed an increase, with 36,710 cases increasing by 36% last week.
And the death toll rose 15 percent weekly to 182.
But Professor Ferguson said: “We cannot rule out the need for additional measures, but I doubt we will need to go into lockdown again.”
He said social distance could return if there was a “significant increase” in hospital admissions but no “completely closed lockdown”.
Public Health England estimates that the Jobs Rollout has so far prevented 123,100 deaths.
The study of covid symptoms also found that cases dropped to 45,000 per day in the third week, and Professor Tim Specter said: “Another week of declining cases is positive news.”
But he noted that infections in children are now on the rise as they return to school, even as they fall into adulthood.
Public Health England figures show that the rate of infection decreased in every adult group last week, but there was a 25 per cent increase in children and adolescents between the ages of five and nine.
Primary school children have a record high test rate, with 484 cases per 100,000 people.
Professor Ferguson added: “As long as we can have a booster program and immunize teenagers as soon as possible, I am moderate.”
Another 73,527 jobs were awarded on Wednesday, of which 89.6 per cent are now vaccinated and 82.1 per cent are double-job.
Third, as the rollout began, pharmacist Safeway Chingo grabbed a bottle of the first coveted booster in the high street at Leeds Super Drug.
