UK's Javid: Daily COVID cases could reach 100,000

British Health Secretary Sajid Javid warned on Wednesday that the number of daily registered COVID-19 cases across the United Kingdom could soon hit as much as 100,000.

However, Javid told reporters that the government "won't be implementing its plan B of contingency measures at this point, but will be staying vigilant, preparing for all eventualities."

The minister noted that health authorities have identified a new version of the Delta coronavirus variant that is currently spreading in the country, but that it likely doesn't pose a more significant threat.
