The UK has recorded more than 4,000 new coronavirus cases for the first time since May. 

Government data published on Friday revealed that 4,322 cases had been reported in the previous 24 hours, bringing the UK’s total to 381,614. 

The last time daily cases exceeded 4,000 was more than four months ago on May 8, when the positive coronavirus test results of 4,649 people were added to the UK’s infection tally. 

The jump in cases recorded on Friday comes amid a surge in coronavirus infections in recent weeks, which has seen the government limit social interactions to a maximum of six people in England. 

However, despite the steady increase in infections, deaths from coronavirus remain comparatively low, with the deaths of 27 people reported on Friday. 

On May 8, when cases last breached the 4,000 mark, the deaths of 579 people were recorded by the government. 

But prime minister Boris Johnson has warned that the government is prepared to take “tough” action to curb a second surge in coronavirus cases and “protect” Christmas from extensive restrictions.
