The total number of people in the UK screened for coronavirus since the start of the epidemic – 213,181 at 9:00 am on April 7 – is the equivalent of around 320 people per 100,000, or 0.3% of the population.

The number cannot be compared to the equivalent yesterday as the figures lack data from Manchester and Leeds due to processing delays.

The difference between the number of new deaths announced today by the Department of Health – 786 – and the combined total of new deaths announced today by the health authorities of the four UK countries – 854 – is due to the difference in how and when the data is collected and communicated.

None of these figures is an accurate measure of the number of deaths in the UK since yesterday.

For example, one of the deaths announced today by the NHS England took place almost three weeks ago on March 19.
