LONDON, Sept 24 (Reuters) - Three times as many people
tested positive for COVID-19 in England in latest weekly figures
compared to the end of August, NHS Test and Trace said on
Thursday, with more people being referred to the system, though
the proportion reached fell.
NHS Test and Trace said 19,278 new people tested positive
for Coronavirus (COVID-19) in England between September 10 and
September 16, with 21,268 people transferred to the system, up
37% on the week before.
However, 77.7% of those people were reached and asked to
provide contacts, down from 83.9% the week before.
