Watch: UK COVID deaths rise by 47
The number of new Covid cases has fallen by eight per cent compared with last Monday when 43,139 cases of the virus were recorded in the Government’s daily figures.
The figures show 47 more people have died within 28 days of a positive coronavirus test.
This is a 17 per cent fall on last Monday when 57 deaths were announced.
A total of 50,582,504 first doses of Covid vaccine had been delivered in the UK by November 14, the latest Government figures showed on Monday.
This is a rise of 22,938 on the previous day.
Some 46,027,909 second doses have been delivered, an increase of 17,048.
A combined total of 12,8601 booster and third doses have also been given, a day-on-day rise of 217,349.
Boris Johnson has urged Britons to get the booster vaccine as a new Covid wave sweeps through Europe.
The prime minister said getting the jab could avoid a Christmas lockdown as the vaccine top-up programme extended to over-40s.
This applies to people aged 40 to 49 who are eligible for a third jab six months after receiving their second dose.
“If we want to control the epidemic here in the UK and if we want to avoid new restrictions on our daily lives, we must all get vaccinated as soon as we are eligible,” Mr Johnson said during a Downing Street press conference.
Though infections in the capital have remained relatively low during the UK’s fourth wave, new NHS figures reveal a sharp increase in towns in Surrey, Bedfordshire and West Sussex.
Despite having some of the lowest case rates nationally, Tower Hamlets, Southwark and Westminster have seen small increases in infections.
