UK PM keeping 'very close eye' on COVID-19 cases

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his cabinet are keeping a "very close eye" on the rising numbers of daily infections from COVID-19, 10 Downing Steet's spokesperson said on Tuesday.

"The most important message for the public to understand is the vital importance of the booster program and indeed for those children who are eligible to come forward and get our jab," they urged the public.

In the past seven days, Britain has been recording between 40,000 and 49,000 new cases of coronavirus and between 136 and 181 disease-linked deaths per day.
