The figures were reported on the day Sajid Javid rebuffed calls to trigger England’s ‘Plan B’ for Covid despite warning cases may hit 100,000 a day.

The Health Secretary repeated his warning from July that cases could reach the milestone after a surge in recent days.

Yet he said it was not yet time to make face masks compulsory again in some public spaces – or demand vaccine passports in nightclubs.

He told a No10 press conference it was right to hold back on Plan B, because pressure on the NHS isn’t “unsustainable” yet.

That was despite the NHS Confederation begging for a “Plan B plus” to avoid the nation stumbling into a “winter crisis”.

Some 7,891 Covid patients are in UK hospitals after a steady increase over the summer.
