LONDON (Reuters) – Britain on Monday recorded 816 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in its latest daily statistics, falling back from the previous day’s total which had been the highest daily rise in infections since late June.

A total of 311,641 have now tested positive for COVID-19, official data showed.

On Sunday there were 1,062 new positive tests for the coronavirus, at a time of new local lockdowns in some areas and worries over a second wave of infections.
