Infections and deaths are on the rise in the United Kingdom, where 6,048 new cases of coronavirus and 13 deaths have been recorded in the last 24 hours. Yesterday, health authorities had registered 5,683 new cases and one death. It is the second time, in the space of seven days, that the threshold of 6 thousand daily infections has been exceeded. On Friday, 6,238 were registered, while last Tuesday there were 3,165, with zero deaths. The onset of new cases, despite the excellent performance of the vaccination campaign, appears to be linked above all to the Indian variant.
