UK Records Highest Covid-19 Death Count In Six Weeks


The UK has reported 30 new coronavirus deaths over the past 24 hours, government figures reveal. 

It is the highest number of deaths recorded since July 29 and brings the UK’s Covid-19 death toll to 41,584 – the fifth highest in the world. 

And further deaths could still be recorded, with Northern Ireland yet to report its figures for Tuesday.

News of the deaths comes amid a continuing surge in coronavirus cases in the UK, with 2,420 new infections recorded on Tuesday for England, Scotland and Wales. 

It comes after 2,988 cases were reported on Sunday – the biggest jump in new infections in more than three months – and 2,948 on Monday. 

Health secretary Matt Hancock has branded the increase in cases “concerning”, saying that young people – particularly those aged 17 to 21 – were among the biggest drivers of the recent surge in infections.
