POSITIVE coronavirus cases have fallen by 28% in England, new Test and Trace data has shown.
Between November 19th and the 25th, 110,620 people tested positive for coronavirus, more than a quarter down on the previous week.
And in a further boost, the number of people being successfully contacted by the Test and Trace system increased too, rising to 72.5% during the week in question after weeks of nearly record lows of around 60%.
The figures give fresh hope that Britain may have turned a corner in its fight against the virus, with the first vaccines to be rolled out next week.
The first Brits will be given the jab within a matter of days – although it could be months before enough of the population have had it to open the country back up fully.
