7,540 people have tested positive for coronavirus in the UK in the past 24 hours. This is the highest daily figure since the end of February. Health authorities also recorded 6 new deaths. A week ago, there were 4,330 infections and 12 deaths. What worries the health authorities above all is the increase in hospital admissions, which rose above 1,000 units for the first time since mid-May. There are 1,024 people currently hospitalized due to Covid, with an increase of 69 hospitalizations compared to yesterday.
