The current active case count has risen to 1942.

The rapid spread of the new variant of coronavirus has been blamed for the introduction of strict tier four mixing rules for millions of people, harsher restrictions on mixing at Christmas in England, Scotland, and Wales, and other countries placing the UK on a travel ban.
