United Kingdom United Kingdom reported 413 other coronavirus deaths, the lowest daily figure for April


The UK reported this Sunday that 413 other people died in British hospitals after testing positive for coronavirus, bringing the death toll to 20,732.

The figure is the lowest daily increase in deaths reported by the UK since March 31, and is almost half the number of deaths reported on Saturday (813), although you should wait until Tuesday for further follow-up on the curve, since on Sundays and Mondays the reports are usually lower due to the delay in the procedures on the weekend. In any case, the government does not account in these balances for deaths in homes and centers for the elderly.

The British government has set out to achieve its objective of applying 100,000 daily tests before next Thursday, although to date only less than 30,000 have been completed. To do this, the British army is going to start testing the coronavirus for workers considered essential throughout the country in mobile units that will operate in areas that are normally difficult to access.

At least 96 new temporary facilities, which will move to residences, police and fire stations, prisons and aid centers, are expected to start operating before May.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will return to Downing Street on Monday to retake the reins of the Executive after having passed COVID-19, while his government faces pressure to ease the containment measures imposed to stop the spread of the virus in for the sake of the economy, and criticism for its late management of the pandemic.
