Another 230 people dead from coronavirus across the UK

The UK’s coronavirus death rate has continued to fall after another 230 people were confirmed dead across the UK. NHS England today recorded 166 more deaths in hospitals – but this does not take into account other settings like care homes. Across all settings, Scotland announced 50 more deaths, while Wales had 14. Northern Ireland will release its figures later today. A preliminary daily tally of 230 is calculated by adding up the individual counts announced by each of the home nations.

The latest figures emerged after Boris Johnson announced the deaths of 181 NHS workers and 131 social care workers have ‘sadly been reported involving Covid-19’.

He told MPs: ‘I know the thoughts of the whole House are with their families and friends.’ According to yesterday’s government figures, the UK’s coronavirus death toll stands at 35,341. This includes deaths in hospitals, care homes and the wider community. However the Office for National Statistics has said this is likely to be an underestimate, with statistics on excess deaths suggesting the true number of UK coronavirus deaths is just under 55,000. The ONS statistics include any death with Covid-19 on the death certificate, whether or not a test has been carried out, but have a lag of about a fortnight.
