UK deaths have risen by 87 to 422

UK Deaths due to COVID-19 have risen by 87, bringing the total number of deaths to 422, with the number of cases at 8,077

The UK has recorded the highest number of coronavirus deaths in one day after another 87 people died across the country, the highest rise in deaths to the coronavirus in the UK so far, taking the total to 422.

The Department for Health and Social Care announced the latest figures on the first day of a nationwide lockdown to counter the coronavirus, announced by Prime Minister Boris Johnson last night.

Eighty-three of the deaths came in England, with two in Scotland, one in Wales, and one in Northern Ireland.

The number of confirmed cases in the UK now stands at 8,077.

Mr Johnson urged the British Public to stay home to help stop the spread of the disease during an unprecedented televised address on Monday night, but key workers were still met with packed trains this morning.

Mr Gove’s intervention came on the first morning of the government’s most stringent intervention yet to counter the spread of COVID-19.

Shops selling “non-essential” goods like clothing and electronics are shut, as are a range of public spaces and other venues including hair salons, libraries, outdoor gyms and places of worship.
