Cases are up from yesterday and the highest since March 30, 2021

The last time daily coronavirus cases surpassed 3,500 was on March 30 when 3,594 new infections were recorded.

The number of people testing positive each day has risen from yesterday’s 3,180.

And it is also significantly up from this time last month, when 2,060 new cases were recorded.

A further 10 deaths were reported in the latest 24-hour period, meaning the UK’s Covid death toll now stands at 127,758.

This is up from just four on May 20, five on May 13 – but down from 36 on March 27.

A whopping 62,658,639 vaccinations have been administered in the UK.

This includes 38,614,683 first doses and 24,043,956 second doses, meaning more than 24 million Brits almost fully protected against Covid-19.

Despite a stonking vaccination programme, Boris Johnson today poured fresh doubt on June 21’s ‘freedom day’ as Matt Hancock said it was too early to tell if the full unlocking can go ahead.

The PM said as far as he can see there’s nothing in the data to suggest a delay but that “we might have to wait” to make final decisions in the next week or two.

A “formal assessment” of data will take place next week – as medics grow increasingly gloomy about the new surge.

Meanwhile, the Health Secretary warned that the Indian variant is “spreading across the country” and that there had been an uptick in cases in the last 48 hours.

And while there’s hope a double dose of the jab can guard against severe illness from the variant, 10 per cent of those hospitalised with it are already fully vaccinated.

It’s a sign that, while the jab works well, the mutation can still get around inoculation in some cases.
