The 100 people reported are the biggest rise in this country since the first case reported in January 2020. Also, a British man has died in Japan in the last month after he was infected at the diamond cruise ship. Similarly, a British woman of 53 in Bali succumbed to death finalising the number of British causalities to twelve.
