LONDON — Britain has recorded 14,542 confirmed cases of coronavirus, an increase of nearly 2,000 in the past day.
The U.K. also recorded 76 more deaths Tuesday, a large uptick from 19 the previous day.

The latest figures show the official coronavirus death toll in the U.K. has reached 42,445. However, that number only includes people who died within 28 days of testing positive.
The total is more than 58,000 if the death toll included cases where coronavirus was suspected.
