e numbue released by the National Health Service only includes deaths in hospitals after testing positive for the virus. The government then began including care home and community deaths in their figures this week, creating two separate death tolls numbers for the UK. Of those deaths in England, 56 occurred on May 2, 125 occurred on May 1, 43 occurred on April 30 and 95 took place between April 1 and April 29. The remaining eight deaths occurred in March, with the earliest on March 28. The UK now has the third highest number of recorded deaths with coronavirus in the world, after the US and Italy. Britain could soon become the worst-affected country in Europe, as the death toll nears Italy’s total of 28,710. The government has not yet set forward a plan for lifting lockdown restrictions, after they were first implemented on March 23 and extended on April 16. A review of the current clampdown will be be announced on Thursday by Boris Johnson with no significant changes expected to be made immediately.Michael Gove Covid-19 Presser 03/05 03/05/2020.

He told The Sun on Sunday: ‘That’s where we want to go. It’s about working out a way to do it.’Officials have said getting children back into classrooms is a ‘top priority’ in the timetable to ‘unlock’ the UK. Reports suggest primary schools could be given notice as soon as this week, if infection rates continue to drop. Members of the public could also soon be able to exercise several times day, head to the countryside for walks, and enjoy picnics when the first restrictions are lifted. Ministers said the first relaxed measures would still only be for members of the same households, with separate groups still required to remain at least two metres apart.
