A note on the Government dashboard warns that over Easter there may be a delay in some data.

It reads: "During the Easter period, the Covid-19 Dashboard will be updated every day, but the amount of data being updated will vary.

"England: data updated daily; Northern Ireland: no cases and deaths data on 4 April; Scotland: data updated daily; Wales: no data on April 2 and April 4.

"UK totals for each day will reflect the sum of the nations which reported data. Cases and deaths that would have been reported during these periods are likely to instead be reported on the following days.

"As a result, any changes to published data should be interpreted with caution during this period, as they may be a result of changes to reporting schedules.

As of today (Friday, April 2) 31,301,267 people in the UK have had received their first Covid-19 vaccination dose, while 4,948,635 people have had their second dose.
