Covid-19: Britain records another 2,396 Covid cases, 22 deaths

London: Alarmingly, the United Kingdom country Britain reports another 2,396 positive cases  of Covid-19, bringing the total number to 4,395,703, according to official figures.

The country also reported another 22 coronavirus-related deaths. The total number of coronavirus-related deaths in Britain now stands at 127,327. These figures released on Wednesday only include the deaths of people who died within 28 days of their first positive test. Meanwhile, more than 33.1 million people have been given the first coronavirus vaccine shots, according to the latest official figures,  as per Xinhua reports.

Prof. Adam Finn of the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunization (JCVI), an independent expert advisory committee that advises Britain's health departments on immunization, said modelling shows coronavirus cases will rise in the summer as lockdown is relaxed.

"The models that we've seen on JCVI clearly point to a summer surge in cases as the lockdown is relaxed, because there are still many people in the adult population who've not been immunized," he told the BBC.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Tuesday that as Britain continues to make progress in the fight against coronavirus, "we cannot delude ourselves" that the virus has gone away.

Earlier Wednesday, a government advisory scientist warned that Britain is likely to see a "summer surge" in coronavirus cases as many adults are not immunized.
