The UK has recorded its highest daily number of deaths from coronavirus. 938 more people died in hospital with the virus in the last 24 hours, close to the worst levels seen in Italy and Spain. The Prime Minister Boris Johnson was said to be “improving” as he prepared to spend a third night in intensive care. Downing Street said he was “sitting up in bed and engaging positively” with staff at St Thomas’ Hospital in London. Meanwhile scientists have questioned whether the government can meet its target of 100,000 coronavirus tests a day by the end of April. Huw Edwards presents BBC News at Ten reports from Political Editor Laura Kuenssberg and Health Editor Hugh Pym.

How many of those died as a result of covid 19? Not died after being diagnosed with Covid 19? These figures are so skewed its ridiculous.

Be smart and get yourself a phone UV sanitizer. Phones are 16x drifter than the toilet seat and are helping this virus spread. I got mine here https://homexsecrets.com/products/phonepurificer?_pos=2&_psq=phone%20&_ss=e&_v=1.0

Let’s look out for each other.

Harbajan Chadha-Boreham says:

The leaders of most countries have been too slow to act. They saw what it was like in Wuhan and could have prepared in advance. People took their own initiative; started buying masks and senitisers while some of world's leaders were showing off how safe a hand shake is during a pandemic. Big egos with litte wisdom.

I know for fact this was transferred through food in this virus been nagging since January it's no even takeaway fault but this started on food and the government know this, so why the hell are you still letting the risk to transfer from the foods by keeping openening takeaways, if everyone is staying in and still been catching it come on to fuck? Seriously? Tell science to do there job and get these facts out,
I know we need money to keep the country going but they ones that caused it should sort that out,this is people's life's here!

Goldenpill says:

Well..look at the way they are reporting these deaths, please. You die with corona you die of corona. Nice way to spike the death toll and create more fear.

pak hong lee says:

Coronavirus bursts and hospital death bursts too.

It should be Boris Johnson to be blamed for
⑴ caring for nothing;
⑵ caring for no lives with his herd immunity;
⑶ clapping hands without solution.
