Covid infections have risen again in much of the UK, say experts from the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

Latest data from swab tests in the community suggests in England, where Covid rules are due to be dropped, one in every 95 people has the virus.

That is up from one in every 160 in the previous week.

In Scotland, estimates suggest one in every 90 people is infected, while in Northern Ireland it is one in 290 and in Wales it is one in 360.

The more infectious Delta variant accounts for 99% of cases.
