However, the government has revised historical data on cases in England.

On his website, he said the introduction of a new system had disrupted the removal of cases where a positive rapid lateral flow test was followed by all negative lab tests performed within three days.

As a result, 561 more cases have been deleted today.

There was one death in Bedford (485) and none in Central Bedfordshire (570) and Luton (499).

Central Bedfordshire has 11 new Covid cases with a total of 16,171, while Luton has registered nine with a new total of 20,848.

Meanwhile, Buckinghamshire now has 31,764 cases of Covid, Hertfordshire 77,764 and Milton Keynes 20,239 cases.

The new figures are recorded between 5 p.m. the day before and 5 p.m. and unfortunately do not include the number of patients who have recovered from Covid-19.

In the UK, to date, 36,985,505 people have received the first dose of the Covid vaccine and 20,870,453 have received their second dose.
