Coronavirus UK Updates: Another 377 people with COVID-19 die

Another 377 people have died after testing positive for coronavirus in the UK, bringing the total number to 37,837.

In the 24-hour period up to 9am on Thursday, 119,587 Covid-19 tests were dispatched.

However there was no data available on Thursday about how many people had been tested.

Overall, a total of 3,918,079 tests have been sent out and 269,127 cases have been confirmed positive.

However, this does not mean 3.9 million people have been tested for coronavirus, since many people are tested more than once.

NHS England has announced 185 new deaths of people who tested positive for Covid-19, bringing the total number of confirmed reported deaths in hospitals in England to 26,234.

Of the 185 new deaths announced on Thursday:

29 occurred on May 27
73 occurred on May 26
19 occurred on May 25

The figures also show 54 of the new deaths took place between May 2 and May 24, and the remaining 10 deaths occurred in April with the earliest on April 10.

In Scotland, a total of 2,316 patients have died after testing positive for coronavirus, up by 12 from 2,304 on Wednesday, Nicola Sturgeon confirmed.
