Hospitals have said government is under-reporting
The UK’s daily coronavirus death toll has leaped to 563 for the last 24 hours, up by 48% on the previous day.
The government’s figures lag by around 48 hours and hospitals have said deaths are being under-reported, so the real toll is likely higher. The latest Office for National Statistics release suggests at least a quarter should be added for deaths outside hospital.
