The government's preferred measure of the United Kingdom death toll, which counts only those people who died within 28 days of testing positive for coronavirus, now stands at 100,162.

The UK is the fifth country to pass 100,000 deaths after Mexico, USA, India and Brazil - all of which have far larger populations - and as previously been reported has the highest death rate in the world.

"I take full responsibility for everything that the government has done", the prime minister added.

"What I can tell you is that we truly did everything we could, and continue to do everything that we can, to minimise loss of life and to minimise suffering in what has been a very, very hard stage, and a very, very hard crisis for our country, and we will continue to do that, just as every government that is affected by this crisis around the world is continuing to do the same".

"My thoughts are with each and every person who has lost a loved one - behind these heart-breaking figures are friends, families and neighbours", Health Minister Matt Hancock said earlier on Tuesday.

"I know how hard the past year has been, but I also know how strong the British public's determination is and how much we have all pulled together to get through this".

England, by far the most populous of the UK's four nations, re-entered a national lockdown on January 5, which includes the closure of pubs, restaurants, non-essential shops and schools to most pupils. Further travel restrictions have been introduced as the government battles to speed up vaccination delivery and keep variants of the virus at bay.

Another 279,757 people received their first dose of a vaccine yesterday, meaning that 6.8 million people have now received their first jab.
