UK Covid-19 deaths climb by new daily high of 708

Apr 05, 2020 00:06 IST

Britain on Saturday reported 708 more deaths from Covid-19 in a new daily high, as the number of confirmed cases rose to nearly 42,000. The health ministry said 4,313 people who tested positive for the virus in hospital had died while there were 41,903 confirmed cases as on Saturday. The toll has been steadily increasing at more than over 500 deaths a day this week and the country is bracing for an expected peak in the next week to 10 days. Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who is in self-isolation after developing mild symptoms of the disease, ordered a three-week lockdown of the country on March 23 to try to cut infections.
