The prime minister has revealed details of a four-step route out of lockdown

There have been more than 4.3 million confirmed cases of coronavirus in the UK and nearly 130,000 people have died, government figures show.

However, these figures include only people who have died within 28 days of testing positive for Covid-19 and other measures suggest the number of deaths is higher.

Two households or groups of up to six people are now able to meet outside in England again as the stay-at-home Covid restrictions order comes to an end.

The prime minister said four conditions must be met at each phase of lockdown easing - including the vaccine programme continuing to go to plan and infection rates not risking a surge in hospital admissions.

Vaccination rollout

The proportion of over-50s who have received the first dose of a Covid-19 vaccine was more than 80% in almost all of the region's local authority areas.

Mid Suffolk, East Suffolk and South Norfolk have both seen 94% of over-50s receive a first dose, the highest vaccine take-up in England.

Below is a table showing the percentage of over-50s who have had their first dose up to 28 March.

The percentages are calculated using vaccine data from NHS England and estimated population figures from the Office for National Statistics.
