LONDON, July 7 (Xinhua) — Another 155 COVID-19 patients have died in Britain as of Monday afternoon, bringing the total coronavirus-related death toll in the country to 44,391, the British Department of Health and Social Care said Tuesday.
The figures include deaths in all settings, including hospitals, care homes and the wider community.
As of Tuesday morning, 286,349 people have tested positive for the disease in Britain, a daily increase of 581, according to the department.
Meanwhile, the average house prices in June across Britain have fallen for four months in a row, as the property market continued to emerge from COVID-19 lockdown, said mortgage lender Halifax Tuesday.
Halifax’s House Price Index showed the average prices in June were 237,616 pounds (about 298,509 U.S. dollars), falling 0.1 percent compared with the previous month.
“Though only a small decrease, it is notable as the first time since 2010 — when the housing market was struggling to gain traction following the shock of the global financial crisis — that prices have fallen for four months in a row,” said Russell Galley, managing director of Halifax. Enditem
