Coronavirus Breaking News

A total of 335 people have died in the UK after testing positive for coronavirus – an increase of 54 since yesterday.

It comes after a further 46 people in England died following a COVID-19 diagnosis, bringing the total to 303.

Scotland and Wales also reported another four deaths each, taking the totals to 14 and 16 respectively. Two people have died in Northern Ireland.

Sunday’s increase in deaths across the UK was 48.

Boris Johnson daily briefing is not expected to take place at 5pm as usual, with Number 10 sources indicating he will instead address the nation later.

The prime minister has said he is considering tougher measures to slow the virus after thousands of people congregated in parks and tourist hotspots on Sunday, going against advice to stay two metres (6.5ft) apart.

The government is also looking at converting London’s Excel Centre into a makeshift hospital with about 4,000 beds to treat coronavirus patients.
