One area of Berkshire has recorded more than 100 coronavirus cases in the last 24 hours.
The highest number of new cases has been recorded in Wokingham, where 113 cases were reported yesterday (Tuesday, October 12).
It is the only area of Berkshire that recorded more than 100 cases that day.
The rest of the areas recorded new cases in the double digits.
It comes as a leading scientist has warned that the UK may have to return to lockdowns if new strains that can evade the current vaccines are identified.
Dr Marc Baguelin, a member of the government’s SPI-M modelling group, said: “We would most likely be able to update the current vaccines to include the emerging strain.
“But doing so would take months and means that we might need to reimpose restrictions if there were a significant public health risk.”
People are also being offered third vaccine ‘booster’ jabs for those aged 50 and over, those who are particularly vulnerable to coronavirus, and healthcare workers.
