The United Kingdom has recorded a further 22,885 new COVID-19 cases and 367 deaths within 28 days of a positive test, government data showed today.
The daily case number compares with the 20,890 positive cases recorded on Monday.
British fatalities have been rising this month and Tuesday’s total marks a similar daily figure to the 374 that was recorded on March 30, a week into a national lockdown when the country largely came to a standstill.
After a lull in the summer, Yvonne Doyle, Medical Director of Public Health England, said the trend in deaths was once again rising. “It is likely this will continue for some time,” she said in a statement.
