The UK has reported another 5,341 coronvirus cases, down on yesterday – but significantly up on the same day last week.

A further four deaths have also been recorded within 28 days of a positive COVID test – that’s down from 13 on Saturday and six last Sunday.

Sunday’s cases compare to 5,765 on Saturday and 3,240 a week ago.

There were 203,613 first doses administered on Saturday, taking the total to 40,333,231, and 473,378 more second jabs were given, taking that total to 27,661,353.

The health secretary, Matt Hancock, told Sky News’ Trevor Phillips on Sunday programme the link between cases and serious illness had been weakened by the vaccine rollout – and urged people who have had their first jabs to book their second.
