Another 360 people with coronavirus have died in UK hospitals – the lowest daily increase in confirmed deaths for four weeks.
It is the smallest daily increase in COVID-19 deaths in UK hospitals since 30 March when 180 deaths were confirmed.
Monday’s figure is also the smallest percentage increase on the previous day to date at 1.7%.
Earlier, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said the UK is “beginning to turn the tide” in the fight against the virus, but he insisted it was not the time to relax the nationwide lockdown.
The director of NHS England revealed on Sunday that there is a “very definite trend” downwards in the number of people in hospital with coronavirus.
