The total death toll as a result of Coronavirus is 39,369, an increase of 324 as of today. 

The Chairman of the UK Statistics Authority has criticised the Government for their presentation of data on testing. The Government has recently claimed that their capacity for testing exceeds 200,000 a day. However, Sir David Norgrove has objected to this presentation of the testing figures because it does not give any indication of how many people are tested.

Death rates from Coronavirus in England have been higher amongst Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic people, according to a government enquiry into the effects of Coronavirus on BAME people. People of Bangladeshi background face the greatest danger of dying from the disease, their risk of death is double that of white British people.
