COVID-19: UK records 57,725 new coronavirus cases - its highest ever daily total
The UK has recorded another 57,725 COVID-19 cases - its highest daily total since the start of the pandemic.
A further 445 coronavirus-related deaths were also reported on Saturday.
The total number of people who have died within 28 days of a positive coronavirus test in the UK now stands at 74,570, according to government figures.
Saturday is the fifth day in a row that new cases have topped 50,000 in the UK.
Among the latest figures, NHS England reported 383 people had died after testing positive for COVID-19 - most of them occurring on New Year's Eve.
In England, those who died were aged between 27 and 100, with all but 11 (aged between 36 and 95) having known underlying health conditions.
Yvonne Doyle, the medical director for Public Health England, said: "These numbers are a stark reminder that, as we leave 2020 behind, we are not yet of the woods - transmission is very high and many lives are still tragically being lost.
"It is more important now than ever that we don't waste the huge sacrifices we all made last year - we must continue keeping our distance from others, washing our hands and wearing a mask to help stop the spread of the virus."
Saturday's UK-wide data does not include deaths from Scotland, which have not been reported by Public Health Scotland.
The record number of daily cases comes days before schools will begin to reopen across the country - a move being challenged by teaching unions.
The National Education Union has said all primary schools should remain closed for at least two weeks following the Christmas break, and has urged Education Secretary Gavin Williamson to move all learning online as infections continue to rise.
However, the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine is being rolled out next week, significantly increasing the NHS's capacity to offer jabs across the country.
Public Health England have warned against mixing vaccines from different suppliers, after the government advised doctors they could give patients a different booster if their original vaccine is not available or is unknown.
