Info from Minister Alok Sharma today was a recap of figures, and a thank you to the frontline staff and essential businesses staying open to keep things moving during this crisis, but also to the general public for playing their part and staying at home to reduce numbers/demands on the NHS:
The daily figures show that a total of 152,979 people in the UK have now been tested for coronavirus.
Of those, 29,474 have tested positive.
The number of people admitted to hospital in England with coronavirus symptoms is now 10,767, with 3,915 of those in London and 1,918 in the Midlands.
Of those hospitalised in the UK, sadly 2,352 have died. This is an increase of 563 fatalities since yesterday. The youngest of them was just 13 years old.
All our thoughts and prayers are with the families and loved ones of those who have lost their lives.
This is more tragic evidence that this virus does not discriminate.
