The UK recorded another 58 Covid-19 deaths and 4,715 new cases on Saturday, according to official government figures.

It brings the total coronavirus death toll in the UK total to 126,573. Separate figures published by the UK’s statistics agencies show there have now been 149,000 deaths registered in the UK where Covid-19 was mentioned on the death certificate.

The total of Covid-19 infections since the pandemic began, now stands at 4,329,180.

The number of people who have been vaccinated in Britain edges closer to 30 million with 29,727,435 people having received their first dose.

A total of 3,293,517 people have had their second dose.

Speaking about the milestone of NHS England passing 25 million first jabs, Professor Stephen Powis, the NHS national medical director, said: “This is the latest major milestone showing rapid and targeted progress in getting people in England protected against coronavirus.

“Passing the 25 million mark is a remarkable achievement for NHS staff across the country who have jabbed more than half the adult population and are continuing to work carefully to identify those last remaining people in the top priority groups yet to get their jab and urging them to come forward.

“While supplies of doses will be tightened next month, anyone with a second jab booked should come forward, and our other top priority is to remind everyone who is aged 50 and older or who has an underlying health condition that their first jab is available to them, now and throughout April.”

It comes as Boris Johnson admitted that he was wary about prospects of rising coronavirus cases but said he sees “absolutely nothing in the data” to halt the easing of lockdown.

Scotland recorded six deaths from coronavirus and 563 positive tests in the past 24 hours, according to Scottish Government data.

The latest official figures bring the death toll under this measure – of people who first tested positive for the virus within the previous 28 days – to 7,578.

The deaths of two further people who previously tested positive for Covid-19 in Northern Ireland have been reported by the Department of Health.

Another 138 confirmed cases of the virus were also recorded in the last 24-hour reporting period.Read More
