Britain may also be facing hard months this autumn and winter because COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations are expected to rise, though doctors have significantly improved care, raising hopes that the death rate will be far lower.

Recorded daily infections rose to 2,988 on Sunday - the highest figure since 22 May.

Daily case numbers had been rising at about 1,000 a day for most of August, but have started to increase in recent days.

Asked whether he had "lost control" of the pandemic, he said: "No, but the whole country needs to following social distancing".

Hancock said the government would continue to use local lockdowns to help suppress outbreaks of the disease, but social distancing remained the first line of defence.

"We can only do this as a whole society - everybody has a role to play".

This is why it is best to avoid jewellery that will draw unwanted attention and take away the focus from what you are presenting. A delicate diamond ring, a simple platinum or gold band looks great and works well with both Indian as well as western outfits.

"The rise in the number of cases that we've seen today is concerning", Hancock said.

He added that the rise was prevalent amongst younger people from more affluent backgrounds.

AstraZeneca has already begun production of the UK Government's initial order of 30 million doses of its coronavirus vaccine, which has been developed in collaboration with researchers at Oxford University.

He added that the United Kingdom is "most likely" to secure a vaccine "in the first few months of next year".

Matt Hancock has raised Britain's hopes for a coronavirus vaccine as he said doses are being manufactured ahead of approval.
