Covid-19: Highest daily cases since February and ‘Glastonbury style’ rush for jabs

More than a million coronavirus vaccine bookings were made on the NHS website yesterday for the first time – on the day all 25 to 29-year-olds were eligible to access it. NHS chief executive Sir Simon Stevens labelled it a “Glastonbury style” rush – a reference to the traditional race to book tickets for the music festival. Meanwhile, another 7,540 people tested positive for Covid-19 on Wednesday – the highest daily number of cases since the end of February.
