At least 12,107 people have died from coronavirus in the UK’s hospitals, according to the latest figures from the Department of Health and Social Care.
That’s an increase of 778 since the last update. The figures are current as of 5 p.m. local time yesterday.
Remember: It only includes those who died in hospital. These numbers do not include the people who died in nursing homes or elsewhere.
Other figures released by the UK’s Office of National Statistics on today suggest the true death toll is significantly higher than the Department of Health and Social Care’s tally because there can be a lag in recording some deaths.
The department says at least 93,873 people have tested positive to coronavirus.
