As of yesterday, England was seeing 20,149 positive tests daily, bringing the total number to 3,207,381 since the start of the pandemic.

Meanwhile, the Government is expected to announce that travellers entering the country will have to quarantine in hotels.

The decision is set to be made as concerns grow over new variants of Covid-19. The requirement to isolate for 10 days will be required for those returning from the varients' countries of origin.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock said, leading the Covid-19 press briefing from Downing Street last night: "On Saturday alone, we gave nearly half a million jabs.

"In the last week, 2.5 million people have been vaccinated across the UK. That’s a rate of more than 250 people a minute.

"We’re on track to offer everyone in the top 4 priority groups a jab by the 15 February. If you’re in one of those groups, one of the top 4 priority groups, and you haven’t had the call yet, don’t worry: the NHS will be in touch."
