According to government figures released on Sunday, 9,930,846 people have received a first dose and 32,849,223, their second.

The stats also showed 1,882 further coronavirus cases recorded in the latest 24-hour period.

Between 12 April and 18 April, 17,887 people had a confirmed positive test result – a decrease of -2.8% compared with the previous seven days.

The new figures come as it is warned it could take five years for some hospitals to catch up with the backlog of patient care caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
