Coronavirus LIVE: increasing number of deaths per day in the UK while PM remains in intensive care


Nearly 8,000 people died from COVID-19 in the UK, an increase of 881 from the previous day, said Foreign Minister Dominic Raab.

Raab replaces Prime Minister Boris Johnson who is still in intensive care but “in a good mood,” said his deputy.

There are more than 65,000 confirmed cases of the virus out of more than 240,000 people tested.

Spain recorded 683 deaths in 24 hours Thursday compared to 757 yesterday, a slight drop which renewed the hope that the epidemic would stabilize.

The number of new confirmed cases also increased from 6,180 yesterday to 5,756 today.

Spain has registered 152,446 cases and more than 15,000 deaths since the start of the epidemic.

Italy has also seen its death toll decrease every day after implementing a nationwide lockout in early March.

Meanwhile, France and the United Kingdom are preparing to extend their lockout times beyond next week as deaths from COVID-19 continue to rise.

In France, President Emmanuel Macron is expected to discuss the extension in a televised speech on Monday, the Elysée Palace announced.
