What's the latest on the coronavirus in the UK?

On April 3, it was announced that the total confirmed cases of coronavirus had risen to 51,608.

The death toll is now at 5,413 in Britain.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced the UK was going into lockdown two 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."
