UK Novel Coronavirus Pandemic Death Toll Reaches 36,675

The British government announced Saturday the UK death toll from confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus COVID-19 rose by 282 to 36,675.

Tragically, 36,675 people have now died.

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps Downing Street briefing.

The government publishes the death toll based on those who definitely had COVID-19.

However, Reuters reports broader figures based on suspected COVID-19 deaths present a higher number of fatalities.

That's because some patients die at home, rather than after being admitted to hospital and tested for the highly contagious virus.
