 COVID-19: UK records biggest one-day spike on record

London, Jan 02: Another 57,725 people in the UK have tested positive for the novel coronavirus, marking the highest increase in single-day cases since the beginning of the pandemic in the country, according to official figures. Another 445 infected patients have died within 28 days of a positive test.

The new figures were revealed as the number of people being admitted to hospital is nearing the level of the first peak in April with medical experts warning that the problem could get worse through January and February.


Meanwhile, the UK government’s Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) has urged for all regions of England to be placed in the highest Tier Four restrictions, which require residents in the areas to stay at home, with limited exemptions.
