Britain's daily Covid cases rise by 37% in a week to 10,633 - as Boris warns of a 'rough winter' ahead, refuses to rule out MORE lockdowns and dashes hopes of overseas summer holidays

Britain's daily coronavirus case have risen by another third in a week, official figures revealed today after Boris Johnson warned more lockdowns could still be on the cards this winter.

Department of Health bosses recorded 10,633 positive tests in the last 24 hours — up 37.3 per cent on last Monday's count — with the national uptick in cases fuelled by the highly-transmissible Indian variant, which MailOnline today confirmed was now dominant in more than 300 areas of England.

Despite cases steadily increasing since mid-May, the number of people dying from the disease has stayed relatively flat, in a key sign the vaccines have broken the link between infections and fatalities. Five victims were added to the official toll today, compared to three last week.
