Coronavirus: Death Toll In UK Spikes To 38,161 After 324 More Deaths

Uk Death Toll

The UK’s official death casualties from coronavirus have increased to 38,161 after another 324 people died. The latest numbers were released by the Department of Health this afternoon and consist of deaths in all environments, including care homes.

In total, the government announced 4,043,686 tests have been carried out, including 131,458 yesterday. In total, 271,222 people have tested positive. Downing Street has said it continues on track to coincide with the promised 200,000 capacity target for coronavirus tests on Monday.

Deaths Since Yesterday

Earlier, NHS England stated 149 more deaths had been reported in hospitals since yesterday. Across the devolved administrations, Scotland stated 15 more deaths, Wales had ten, and Northern Ireland had three.

The stats came at the start of the daily Downing Street briefing at which chancellor Rishi Sunak proclaimed that employers would have to pay 10% of downsized staff wages from September and 20% from October as the government’s job preservation scheme is turned up. Mr. Sunak told bosses they would have to start sharing from August as the lockdown is lifted, and plans emerged in to restart the economy.

Scheme

The program has so far comprised the wages of 8.4 million downsized workers costing £15 billion. But the government has allowed the scheme cannot run indefinitely.

It also follows Boris Johnson’s declaration of a progressive easing of the lockdown in England, with friends and families able to meet in parks and gardens in socially distanced groups of six from June 1.

The Prime Minister said all five of his tests to move into the next stage had been met, permitting schools to begin reopening and greater connection to be authorized from Monday.
