Probably because more people are being tested. I wouldn’t worry yourself too much about COVID, as it know it’s a very stressful time xx

Natural reproduction rate of the Delta variant of the coronavirus is something like 5 or more. 77% of adults have had both vaccine doses, which is about 61% of the total population of the UK.

So, in the incredibly optimistic assumption that 2 vaccine doses completely prevented infection and the R rate was 5, you would need to vaccinate at least 80% of the total population to prevent an exponential rise in cases.
We haven't, so cases are rising

The number of cases are rising, but the number of deaths has drastically drastically decreased, which is the main purpose of the vaccines.
