Coronavirus deaths in UK hospitals surpass 10,000

The death toll from COVID-19 has risen to 10,612 across hospitals in the United Kingdom after a recorded daily rise of 737, the health ministry said on Sunday.

The figures were as of 1700 BST (1600 GMT) on April 11.

The two previous daily increase figures were both above 900. On previous weekends since the outbreak began, figures have dipped, which can reflect longer delays in registering deaths.

The number of people with coronavirus who have died in UK hospitals has topped 10,000.

The total number of hospital deaths stood at 10,612 on Sunday, up by 737 from 9,875 the day before.


For the last two days, more than 900 deaths have been recorded in hospitals in the UK’s official death toll.

On Saturday, the government said 917 people had died in hospitals over the previous 24 hours, while on Friday the equivalent number for the previous day was 980 – the highest so far.
