COVID-19 cases are rising in the UK – but are deaths?

A lower proportion of people who test positive for #coronavirus appear to be dying, suggesting that the second peak may not be as bad as the first.
At the height of the pandemic, coronavirus deaths were multiplying quickly – but so far, that’s not happening in Spain or France, who are ahead of the UK’s trajectory by about three weeks.
Ed Conway analyses the data.
