  • UK records worst daily Covid-19 death rate in the world		Posted by Vento on 20th January 2021 in International News

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Wednesday's record deaths from COVID-19 are "appalling" and the death toll is likely to keep rising in the next few weeks because of the spread of a new, more infectious variant of the virus.

Britain reported a record number of deaths from COVID-19 on Wednesday, with 1,820 people dying within 28 days of positive coronavirus test, surpassing the previous peak set a day earlier, government data showed.

According to data from the Johns Hopkins University, the United Kingdom has reported more than 3.4 million confirmed cases and more than 90,000 deaths.

Covid-19 related deaths will "continue for some time throughout this second wave", Yvonne Doyle, medical director at Public Health England, said.

England is now under the third national lockdown since the outbreak of the pandemic in the country.

A survey by the Office for National Statistics found one in eight people in England tested positive for antibodies against the disease in December, suggesting they had the infection in the past.

New figures from the vaccine programme show 4,609,740 people have received the first dose of the vaccine.

Schools in London and southeast England could reopen ahead of the rest of the country after lockdown because the capital and surrounding areas were the first to be affected by the new strain of coronavirus, according to deputy chief medical officer Jenny Harries.
