UK on 3rd, covid 19 death toll exceeds 26000

The death toll in the UK due to the novel coronavirus pandemic exceeded 26,000 on Wednesday.

At a daily press briefing, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab confirmed a total of 26,097 fatalities across the country.

The figure is the first that includes deaths at home and the wider community, along with the usual hospital fatalities, not just deaths in hospitals.

Fatalities increased by 3,811 since Tuesday, but Raab stressed that this did not necessarily indicate a surge, as the new figures included deaths from March 2 to April 28.

He said the daily increase had been 765.

He also cautioned against lifting the lockdown too early, saying Germany had seen since a rise in cases after easing restrictions.

The UK now has the third-highest coronavirus death toll in the world after the US and Italy.

Global corona virus deaths top upto 224,000

More than 224,000 people around the world have lost their lives from the novel coronavirus as of Wednesday, according to data compiled by US-based Johns Hopkins University.

The university’s study found 224,562 fatalities caused by COVID-19, the respiratory disease caused by the virus, as well as more than 3.16 million infections.

The virus has spread to 185 countries or regions since it was first detected in the Chinese city of Wuhan in December.

The US continues to be the country hardest-hit by the pandemic, with the highest number of infections and deaths worldwide.

In all, the US has more than 1 million confirmed cases, and nearly 60,000 deaths. Spain, Italy and France continue to follow with the world’s highest number of infections. In terms of deaths, Italy follows the US, followed by the UK and Spain, according to the Johns Hopkins study.

Worldwide an excess of 957,000 patients have recovered after being confirmed to have contracted the virus.

The figures, however, are likely below actual counts as widespread testing continues to be a problem in many parts of the world, including the US, and some governments have worked to conceal the true extent of their coronavirus outbreaks.
