UK daily Covid cases top 60,000 for first time – along with 830 deaths (Vox Political scrapbook)

Last Updated: January 5, 2021By Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

The number of people testing positive for coronavirus in the UK has increased by 60,916 – and another 830 people have died, government figures show.

This is the highest daily total of Covid-19 cases ever recorded in the UK and the first time the number has breached 60,000.

The number of deaths reported today appears to be a large jump, although Scotland did not report its deaths yesterday and there would have been a lag in reporting after the weekend.
