COVID deaths top 350 in one day amid warning toll will increase 

What happened?

The UK has recorded its highest daily coronavirus death toll in five months after 367 people were confirmed to have died in the 24 hours to 9am on Tuesday. It’s the highest daily death toll since 27 May, when there were 425 COVID deaths and the country was still in lockdown. A further 22,885 lab-confirmed cases were also announced in the period, up from 20,890 on Monday.

Deaths to rise ‘for some time’

Dr Yvonne Doyle, medical director of Public Health England, said deaths were expected to keep rising. “We continue to see the trend in deaths rising and it is likely this will continue for some time,” she said. “Each day we see more people testing positive and hospital admissions increasing. Being seriously ill enough from the infection to need hospital admission can sadly lead to more COVID-related deaths. We can help to control this virus. We know that by washing our hands regularly, wearing a face covering and socially distancing we can save lives by slowing the spread of the virus.”

Weekly deaths up 50%

According to separate figures published on Tuesday, the number of weekly registered deaths involving coronavirus has risen by more than half in seven days. There were 670 deaths registered in England and Wales that mentioned “novel coronavirus” in the week ending 16 October, the most recent time period for which data is available, the Office for National Statistics said. This is a rise of 53% from the previous week, when 438 such deaths were registered.
