Britain breaks the record for the number of people infected with coronavirus per day

The UK has broken the record for the daily increase in the number of detected infected with the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2: over the past day, more than 33.4 thousand new cases were discovered in the country, Reuters reports.

This is the highest daily number of infected people during a pandemic. Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced a new quarantine regime for at least a month – the government fears that the proportion of patients will grow so much that the healthcare system will no longer cope with their influx.

The number of deaths from COVID-19-related causes is not yet known, but Britain is in fifth place in the world in terms of the total number of victims, after the United States, Brazil, India and Mexico. In total, according to the Johns Hopkins Institute, 1.29 million patients were identified there.

Earlier, overcoming such a “record” was reported from the United States – 145 thousand new cases were detected there per day.
