UK coronavirus hospital deaths increase by 10 amid infection surge

0

The number of coronavirus hospital deaths has risen by 10 amid a surge of infections.

England recorded a total of 10 deaths, with Scotland and Wales recording zero.

Northern Ireland’s figures will be released later today.

Yesterday, the number of coronavirus deaths recorded in hospital was 18 – with 17 of those in England.

In Scotland, a total of 222 people have tested positive for coronavirus in the past 24 hours, Nicola Sturgeon said.

Speaking at the Scottish Government’s coronavirus briefing, the First Minister said 27,798 people have now tested positive in Scotland, up from 27,576 on Sunday.

This is 6.9% of newly-tested individuals, down from 9.1% the previous day.

Ms Sturgeon warned the rise in cases is lower than expected and is likely down to a “weekend effect”.

No new deaths of patients who first tested positive for the virus in the previous 28 days have been recorded, with this total remaining at 2,511.

There are 122 people in hospital confirmed to have the virus, up by 17 in 24 hours.
Of these patients, 16 were in intensive care, up by four.

It comes after the number of lab-confirmed cases of coronavirus in the UK increased by 5,693 on Sunday – the third-highest total on a Sunday.

As the deaths continue to mount, the government has decided to enforce local lockdowns in a bid to get the infection rate under control.

An estimated 17million people in the UK are now living in local lockdown areas.

People in those towns and cities have had their freedoms restricted further to the measures Boris Johnson announced earlier this week.

They included a 10pm curfew on bars and pubs.

On Wednesday MPs will vote on whether to preserve the Coronavirus Act, which was rushed through in a single day in March and allows the government to enforce lockdowns.

It must be renewed every six months to remain in effect.

The 329 pages of legislation created substantial powers to detain any person who might be infectious, to close borders and postpone elections, and to suspend human rights safeguards in a range of settings.

Rights groups such as Liberty and the Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants have called for MPs to vote the legislation down.

Their calls were echoed by thousands of people in Trafalgar Square on Saturday, who breached coronavirus restrictions to oppose the legislation
