Highest daily toll so far
This post originally stated that there had been eighteen new deaths from COVID-19 in the last 24 hours.
The true total was twenty – but Health Secretary Matt Hancock unconscionably left out deaths in Wales and Scotland.
Another twenty people in the UK have died in the last twenty-four hours as a result of COVID-19 coronavirus disease – the highest number so far.
Boris Johnson is still not following WHO recommendations to “test, test, test” all those who might be infected – let alone pursuing the joined-up, coordinated use of all the measures available: test, trace contacts, quarantine (not self-isolate) – and close schools and other gatherings.
Things are going to get much worse, very fast – and Johnson and his cronies must be held accountable for their wilful slowness to act.
