This is up on last Monday, when 12,330 more cases were recorded, but down on the 15,450 of November 23.

Separate figures published by the UK’s statistics agencies for deaths where Covid-19 has been mentioned on the death certificate, together with additional data on deaths that have occurred in recent days, show there have now been 77,000 deaths involving Covid-19 in the UK.

Earlier today, the NHS reported deaths in hospital settings only have rose by 202 in the past 24 hours.

In England the number of coronavirus patients who died in hospital settings in the past 24 hours rose by 190, Wales recorded two more fatalities, Scotland recorded one more death and Northern Ireland lost nine more patients.

Scotland has recorded one death from coronavirus and 677 positive tests in the past 24 hours, Nicola Sturgeon said.

It brings the death toll under this measure – of people who first tested positive for the virus within the previous 28 days – to 3,917.

Ms Sturgeon said 100,783 people have now tested positive in Scotland, up from 100,106 the previous day.

Today’s figures come as care home workers, NHS staff and people aged 80 and over will begin receiving the coronavirus vaccine from Tuesday.

The death toll in the UK is higher than the other worst-affected countries in Europe and the number of people killed by coronavirus is only higher in the United States, Brazil, India and Mexico.

Back in April, the UK’s chief scientific officer, Sir Patrick Vallance, told MPs that the aim was to keep deaths below 20,000, describing this as a “good outcome”.
