PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Recent NHS figures have shown that in the third wave of Covid-19 more women are dying than men. In the previous two waves men were shown to be at a much higher risk of dying from the terrible virus, but it appears it is now women have a lower survival chance than men. But while women are more vulnerable, those under 60 are also faring better against the virus than they were in previous waves. People with no known health problems when they were infected by the virus made up 5 per cent of 25,080 deaths in the first wave and 3 per cent of 12,125 deaths in the third, reports the Mirror. And those under 60 made up 8.7 per cent of deaths in the spring, whereas this winter they account for only 5.9 per cent of deaths.

Test and Trace has also changed its definition of ‘close contact’, which was previously defined as anyone who has been within two metres of someone for a single period of at least 15 minutes. Now it is anyone who has been within two metres of someone for more than 15 minutes, whether in a single period or cumulatively over the course of one day. When it comes to public compliance, data from transport app Citymapper shows people living in London, Manchester and Birmingham are planning more journeys by public transport now than in the first lockdown. Journeys during the first lockdown fell to less than 10 per cent of pre-pandemic levels compared to just under 20 per cent of pre-pandemic levels in the third lockdown. Dr David Strain, a senior clinical lecturer at the University of Exeter, told the Sun of potential hypotheses as to why the trend is shifting.

"If the amount of virus they come into contact with is above that threshold the exposure turns into the disease. "Now the virus is more virulent, you need a much lower amount to cause the infection, therefore people who previously were unlikely to catch the disease before (young fit women) are suddenly vulnerable." On Tuesday, Health Secretary Matt Hancock said the UK's Covid-19 pandemic is at its worst point and hospitals won't get quieter until February. Hancock told the Downing Street press conference: "We're at the worst point of this pandemic.
