Confirmed infections of COVID-19 reach 1,501,680, against 1,403,968 recoveries and 30,040 deaths, leaving 67,672 active cases

Pakistan on Monday reported 1,360 new infections of COVID-19 after conducting 41,597 tests—a positivity ratio of 3.3 percent.

People infected with COVID-19 would not be legally required to self-isolate in England starting in the coming week, the British government has announced, as part of a plan proposed by Prime Minister Boris Johnson for “living with COVID.” Speaking with the BBC over the weekend, he claimed this was the time for “everybody to get their confidence back,” adding that the pandemic had reached a stage where state mandates were no longer required and personal responsibility was to be favored. However, some experts have warned that this decision would likely lead to a surge in new infections and could actually weaken the country’s defenses against any potential future strains of the coronavirus. Johnson’s announcement came as Buckingham Palace announced that Queen Elizabeth II, 95, has tested positive for COVID-19.

Across the world

Globally, the virus has now infected more than 425,071,562 people, with over 5,906,496 reported deaths. As the world recovers from a fifth wave of the pandemic caused by the highly infectious Omicron variant, with some observers claiming its rapid spread has provided “short-term immunity” to large segments of the global population, the World Health Organization continues to call for “vaccine equality,” i.e. for developed nations to stop hoarding vaccines in excess of their requirements and to share them with the developing world. The global health body has stressed that deploying vaccine boosters for the already vaccinated does not help counter the mutation of new variants in populations that have yet to be inoculated and warned that if everyone isn’t safe, then no one is. Overall, around 350,759,806 patients of the 425 million+ infected have recovered thus far.
