The lowest number of coronavirus deaths has been reported since the virus began to tighten its grip in the UK in March.

As of Sunday afternoon, the total number of deaths from coronaviruses in the UK stands at 34,466, after the death of 111 patients in the past day, but marks the smallest increase in two months.

The numbers are the lowest since March 22, just before the lockout was announced.

111 other patients unfortunately died in England, Wales and Scotland. Of these, 90 were in England, 12 in Wales and nine in Scotland. Northern Ireland has yet to announce its figures.

The NHS England has announced 90 new deaths from people who test positive for Covid-19, bringing the total number of confirmed deaths reported in hospitals in England to 24,617.

Of the 90 new deaths announced today, 46 occurred on May 15.

The NHS England publishes daily updated figures showing the dates of each coronavirus-related death in hospitals in England, often including previously unreported deaths that occurred several days or even weeks ago.

This is due to the time it takes for the deaths to be confirmed as positive for Covid-19, for the post mortem exams to be processed and for the test data to be validated.

Figures released today by NHS England show that April 8 continues to have the highest number of hospital deaths in a single day, with a current total of 889.

The record for the highest number of deaths in England was recorded on April 8, with a total of 889.

More than 4.64 million people have been infected with the new coronavirus worldwide, and 310,236 have died.
