Another 866 die with coronavirus in England – bringing total to 8,114

Another 866 patients have died in England after contracting coronavirus – bringing the total to 8,114.

The figures were released by the NHS England.

Earlier, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said the number of people with COVID-19 who have died in Scotland had risen by 48 – taking the total to 495.

In Wales, 29 further deaths took the number to 315.

Friday’s figure from Northern Ireland was 10 additional deaths – meaning the number there stands at 92.

Each nation reports their figures every day in the early afternoon. The overall UK figure will be released by the Department of Health later.

Britons have been urged to stay inside for the duration of the lockdown despite good weather forecast for the Bank Holiday weekend.

Families have also been advised not to travel to see relatives for Easter.

John Apter, national chair of the Police Federation of England and Wales, said the “vast majority” of people are following the law but a minority are either “genuinely confused by the guidance or they’re completely oblivious to the dangers”.

“Policing is a tough job at the best of times but in some areas it’s making that difficult job even more difficult,” he told Sky News.

“I would beg the public – please, take the advice and stay at home, unless you have to venture out for those essential journeys.”

David Lewis, deputy chief constable of Dorset Police, also told Sky News officers will be stationed on arterial roads to check people aren’t visiting holiday homes or beauty spots this weekend.

“My guidance would be: If you have to ask yourself ‘is this an essential journey’ then it probably isn’t, so turn round and stay home,” he said.
