Public Health England said 102 new deaths have been reported across the UK, with the total number of people who had died in hospitals, care homes and the wider community after testing positive for coronavirus in the UK rising to 46,628, as of 5pm on Monday.

Separate figures published by the UK’s statistics agencies show there have now been 56,800 deaths registered in the UK where Covid-19 was mentioned on the death certificate.
