LONDON (Reuters) – The prevalence of COVID-19 infections in England have fallen slightly, with 633,000 infections in the latest week to Nov. 21 from 664,700 the week before, the Office for National Statistics said on Thursday.

Overall prevalence of COVID-19 infections fell to 1 in 85 people from 1 in 80 the previous week, but the ONS said it could not provide an estimate of daily incidence of infections due to an issue with the data from one of the laboratories.
