The total death toll as a result of Coronavirus now stands at 39,728, an increase of 359 as of today.
In the daily briefing the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, urged anyone with symptoms to apply for a test at www.nhs.uk/coronavirus, as soon as they develop symptoms. Johnson also announced that anyone arriving in the UK from abroad will be asked to isolate for 14-days.
The Government’s report into BAME deaths as a result of Coronavirus has led to controversy after third-party submissions were left out of the Government’s commissioned report. Organisations such as the Muslim Council of Britain have expressed dismay at the lack of inclusion of their suggestions to tackle racism and discrimination in the NHS.
