In the UK, about 16,000 confirmed cases went unreported due to a technical glitch.
Although those who tested positive received their results, contact tracing was not carried out. While this error has since been resolved, there are growing concerns on the impact of this oversight in regard to a potential increase in transmission rate and case fatality.
As of yesterday, over 17,500 daily confirmed cases were reported in the UK.
