Britain’s government reported 14 new deaths within 28 days of a positive test for COVID-19, up from 11 the day before, and a further 10,321 cases of the disease on Saturday.
The data also showed that 81.0 percent of the adult population had received a first dose of a vaccine, and 59.0 percent two doses.
