What's the latest on the coronavirus in the UK?
On April 29, it was announced that the total confirmed cases of coronavirus had risen to 165,221.
The death toll is now at 26,097 in Britain.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced the UK was going into lockdown three weeks ago now, meaning the public are only allowed out for essential trips to the supermarket, to collect medicine and for one form of exercise a day.
The Government announced new and stricter rules for the public in order to stop the spread of coronavirus, and in turn ease the pressure on the NHS.
Boris Johnson explained in the press conference: "If too many people become seriously unwell at one time, the NHS will be unable to handle it, meaning more people are likely to die. Not just from coronavirus, but from other illnesses as well."
Most recently, the Government announced that they will be extending the lockdown period for another three weeks.
In a press conference on Thursday April 16, Dominic Raab said that while there are indications the lockdown has been successful in slowing down the spread of the virus, it is still a mixed and inconsistent picture.
Due to this, the UK will continue it's lockdown for another three weeks. He warned that by relaxing the lockdown and social distancing rules too early, it could cause a second peak of the virus and would "undo all the process we've made". The Foreign Secretary explained that if they were to relax the social distancing rules now, it would damage public health and the economy.
