Britain registers more than 51,000 new cases of coronavirus; account 10 610 958


Britain has registered 51,342 new COVID-19 infections, bringing the total number of coronavirus cases in the country to 10,610,958, according to official figures released on Wednesday.

The country has also reported 161 other coronavirus-related deaths. Britain’s total coronavirus-related death toll now stands at 145,987, with 7,317 COVID-19 patients still in hospital.

The vast majority of these infections are likely the Delta variant, although cases of Omicron are on the rise as well.

Earlier Wednesday, 131 more cases of the new Omicron COVID variant were reported in Britain, bringing the total to 568, British health authorities confirmed.

Scientists have called on the government to take more action and urge people to be more careful as Omicron cases continue to rise in the country.

More than 89% of people aged 12 and over in Britain received their first dose of the vaccine and more than 81% received both doses, according to the latest figures. More than 37% received booster shots, or the third dose of a coronavirus vaccine.

To get life back to normal, countries like Britain, China, Germany, Russia and the United States have fought against time to roll out coronavirus vaccines.
