UK hits record number of daily COVID-19 deaths as Boris Johnson warns numbers will rise

Britain has registered a new record for daily COVID-19 deaths, with 1,820 people dying in the space of 24 hours.

The UK has suffered the highest death toll in Europe from COVID-19 and its economy has shrunk the most among the world’s industrial power-houses in the first half of 2020.

But the nation has also vaccinated more people against COVID-19 than almost any other country, raising hopes of recovery once its latest lockdown ends and the Government begins to ease restrictions.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Wednesday (local time) that record deaths from COVID-19 are “appalling” and the death toll is likely to keep rising in the next few weeks because of the spread of a new, more infectious variant of the virus.
