This comes as Number 10 issued a dire warning about a challenging winter ahead.

The Prime Minister’s official spokesman said: “We obviously keep a very close eye on the latest figures. We always knew that the coming months would be challenging.

“What we are seeing is case rates, hospitalizations and deaths are still roughly in line with the modeling as determined a few months ago.

“The vaccination program will continue to be our first line of defense with new treatments, tests and public health advice.

“But we will obviously keep a close watch on the matters. But it is thanks to our vaccination program that we have been able to break the link between cases, hospitalizations and deaths.”

Professor Hayward, a member of the Sage Scientific Advisory Panel, described the increase in infection rates as “concerning”.

He told BBC Radio 4’s World at One: “I think it is concerning that we have higher rates of infection and higher rates of hospitalization and mortality than many of our European counterparts.”

He said there is “a huge potential for the NHS to come under a lot of pressure”.
