The health body recently changed the way it records the figures.

Cases identified through a positive lateral flow test – those which can deliver results within half an hour – will no longer be counted if the person then takes a PCR test, which is sent to a lab to be checked, and receives a negative result within three days.

The latest data shows that the NHS reached an important milestone as more than 77 per cent of the population has received their first dose of a Covid-19 vaccine.
