Britain registered 51,342 new COVID-19 infections bringing the total number of cases in the country to 10,610,958, according to official figures released Wednesday.

The country also reported a further 161 coronavirus-related deaths. The total number of coronavirus-related deaths in Britain now stands at 145,987, with 7,317 COVID-19 patients still in the hospital.
