Britain announces 346 more coronavirus deaths

Britain today announced another 346 coronavirus deaths, taking the UK’s official fatality toll to 31,587. 

This is significantly less than yesterday’s 626 fatalities, including a baby believed to have been born a week before lockdown.

A controversial decision not to mass test early on in the health crisis means the actual picture of Britain’s outbreak is unknown.

While giving today’s figures during the Downing Street briefing, Transport Secretary Grant Shapps announced public transport would be reduced to one-10th of its pre-lockdown capacity when restrictions are relaxed.
