British Department of Health and Social Care announced on Thursday the number of daily infections from coronavirus in the country has hit a new record high of 6,634 in the past 24 hours. The figures for COVID-19 cases in Britain now stand at 416,363.

The death toll from the disease went up by 40 since the previous report to land at a total of 41,902 fatalities. That marks the highest number of daily deaths since July 14.

"This is the highest number recorded and a stark warning for us all. The signals are clear.
