LONDON – Britain recorded a further 61 COVID deaths and 33,196 more cases on Sunday, official data showed.

Infections in the last seven days rose by 5.8% on the week before, and weekly deaths jumped by 16%. The Sunday figure for fatalities tends to be lower than weekdays due to a delay by some hospitals in reporting deaths.

Britain has recorded an average of 114 daily deaths in the last week.
