'Perfectly possible' UK Covid-19 peak 'may come on Easter Sunday'

Apr 04, 2020 16:07 IST

UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock has said it was ‘perfectly possible’ that the deadliest day of the coronavirus pandemic in the country will take place on Easter Sunday, with the potential of around a thousand deaths every 24 hours until then, a media report said. An anonymous source claimed on Thursday that the UK government had projected April 12 to be the worst day for deaths across the country - with 3,611 people already losing their lives to the virus so far, said the Metro newspaper report on Friday. The source also alleged that the government's worst-case scenario sees 50,000 people lose their lives in the coronavirus outbreak.
