The number of people with COVID-19 who have died in hospitals in England has risen by 204, bringing the total to 21,384.

It is the lowest daily increase since 30 March.

Numbers collated from the weekend can be lower than later in the week as fewer administration staff may have been working.

The Department of Health has not yet released the UK total, which includes coronavirus-related fatalities in all settings, including hospitals, care homes and the community.

It comes as Boris Johnson is expected to outline on Sunday full details of how the UK will exit lockdown – three days after the government must review the current restrictions.
