The UK’s coronavirus death rate has continued to fall after another 164 people were confirmed dead across the UK.
NHS England today recorded 143 more deaths in hospitals – but this does not take into account other settings like care homes.
Across all settings, Wales announced seven more deaths, Scotland had 12 and Northern Ireland had two. A preliminary daily tally of 164 is calculated by adding up the individual counts announced by each of the home nations.
The number of deaths involving coronavirus in the UK has reached its lowest weekly level for seven weeks, according to new data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) which was released this morning.
