The number of weekly COVID-19 cases recorded in England has hit its highest level since mid-February, according to latest data.
A total of 79,248 people tested positive in the week to 23 June, up 43% on the week before, figures from NHS Test and Trace show.
It’s the highest since the week up to 17 February.
The figures also show 10,289 people started isolating in a managed quarantine hotel in the same week – the highest since the quarantine system began in February.
People who have visited or passed through a ‘red list’ country must pay to isolate in one of the hotels.
