The UK’s true coronavirus death toll is 26,097, shocking new figures revealed today.

It is a rise of 4,419 on yesterday’s tally – with figures now combined to include deaths in hospitals, care homes and the wider community for the first time since the crisis began.

Today’s updated figures do not mean a rise in 4,000 deaths in 24 hours – but instead include non-hospital deaths backdated to March 2.

Speaking in today’s daily coronavirus briefing, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab confirmed 765 of the new deaths were recorded in the last 24 hours.

Until now, the daily reported figures have only included the number of people who have died in hospitals.
