Britain’s daily Covid cases breached 50,000 today for the first time in a month and deaths crept up — as scientists warned the super-mutant Botswana variant could already be in the country.

Department of Health figures show there were 50,091 new cases in the UK in the last 24 hours, up 13 per cent on the previous week.

It marks the first time they had topped 50,000 since October 21 and follows a fortnight of growth, driven mostly by children and young adults.

Some 160 deaths were also registered, which was up two per cent on the same time the previous week when 157 were recorded.

But latest hospitalisations data showed they had fallen 11 per cent after 730 people were admitted to wards with the virus on November 22.
