Coronavirus: 'One in 400 people in England infected'

Coronavirus: 'One in 400 people in England infected'”

New figures for England and Wales brought the death toll to at least 42,990, a Reuters tally showed, including earlier data from Scotland and Northern Ireland, as well recent hospital deaths in England.

There were 3,930 deaths registered in the week up to May 8 mentioning "novel coronavirus" on the death certificate, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) said.

The Department of Health figures are based on when deaths were reported, and are for deaths where a person has tested positive for Covid-19.

The figures also show that 121,002 deaths were registered in England and Wales between March 21 and May 8 2020.

However, coronavirus-related deaths in care homes fell for the second week running to 1,666 in the week up to 8 May.

This news comes on the day that many people in the United Kingdom have returned to work after Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that the lockdown measures would be eased over stages in the next couple of months.

A cross-party parliamentary committee looking into the government's handling of the crisis on Tuesday said testing had been "inadequate" in a letter to Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Mr Stripe said around 15,000 deaths of care home residents have taken place up to May 15 across England and Wales.

Professor Angela McLean, chief scientific adviser to the Ministry of Defence, added that it was good news that people were still not using public transport on a large scale.

Comparisons with other countries are tricky, but the data confirmed Britain was among those hit worst by the pandemic, which has killed more than 317,000 worldwide. "We could not have people in hospital with Covid symptoms not knowing whether or not they had Covid", she said.

"These deaths show the government's failure to support those in society who are most in need of care".

"Whilst hospital deaths of Covid-19 decrease this is not the case in our sector".

Just over a quarter (27 per cent) of all deaths in England from the virus were in such places, compared with a European average of about half, he told MPs.

"But whatever the figures say we will not rest from doing whatever is humanly possible to protect our care homes from this appalling virus to make sure residents and care colleagues have the safety and security they deserve".

Meanwhile, the number of Britons claiming jobless benefit soared almost 70 per cent in April to 2.1 million, as the coronavirus devastated the labour market, official data showed Tuesday.

Hospital deaths have now tapered off so much that the numbers of people dying in hospitals is lower than average for this time of year, for the first time since the lockdown was introduced.

"It is not obvious that there will be an immediate bounceback" in the economy, Sunak said.

Analysts stressed that the labour market would deteriorate even more sharply in the coming months.

The ONS total is 33 per cent higher than the Department of Health total.

Weekly coronavirus-related deaths in care homes also fell to 1,666 in the week ending May 8. We hope that we have succeeded by giving you the full details and information.
