As of 17:00hrs on Monday 3 August, 305,623 people have tested positive for coronavirus in the UK (pillar 1 and 2, see descriptions below). Of those tested positive for coronavirus in the UK, 46,210 have died across all settings.  Today’s latest figures will be available shortly on the Beta dashboard here: https://coronavirus-staging.data.gov.uk.

Changes to dashboard

From today, the COVID-19 Dashboard found at https://coronavirus.data.gov.uk has been replaced with the Beta version currently held at https://coronavirus-staging.data.gov.uk. The Beta version of the site – Coronavirus (COVID-19) cases in the UK – has been available for the past month, and ​will now become the live, official version. This means the current staging domain name will also be decommissioned. To minimise disruption for existing services and users, we will redirect the staging domain to the official (production) service for an additional 2-week period. A full list of changes can be found here.
