It was two weeks after the UK’s peak in terms of deaths, when more than 1,200 people lost their lives.
In recent weeks, places in the North, like Liverpool and Newcastle, have seen a particularly large spike in cases.
Although daily deaths are still much lower than in April and May, they increased in late summer.
Yesterday, 20 other deaths were added to the toll, including 17 in England, two in Northern Ireland and one in Scotland.
The growing number of cases has seen the government scramble to control the rate of infection.
It was announced earlier today that a 10pm bar curfew had been announced as part of a local lockdown in the north-east of England.
New restrictions have been imposed in areas such as Newcastle, Northumberland, North Tyneside, South Tyneside, Gateshead, County Durham and Sunderland due to a spike in coronavirus cases.
Millions of residents in these areas have been told not to socialize with others outside of their homes or to support the bubble from midnight tonight.
Pubs and restaurants will serve customers only via table service and must close between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock revealed the restrictions in the House of Commons this morning.
