The United Kingdom announced on Friday that it recorded 980 new deaths on Thursday, the highest death rate recorded in one day, bypassing Italy.
And the British Health Minister Matt Hancock said on Friday that the number of deaths rose yesterday evening to reach this number, and the total number of deaths due to the virus reached 8958 cases. The number of injuries 19 thousand and 304 cases.
The highest death toll in Italy in the worst days of the pandemic so far was what happened on March 27, when 969 people died. The number of daily deaths has decreased in Italy, the country hardest hit by the Corona virus pandemic.
Italy reported 570 new deaths from Covid-19 on Friday, down from 610 the previous day, bringing the total number of deaths to 18,849.
For Britain, the increasing numbers of deaths indicate that the pandemic is still far away. This raises fears that the British National Health Service may fail to deal with this deadly virus.
The body lacks respirators, workers, and protective clothing. The government in London has been criticized for being behind a long delay in taking effective measures against the pandemic.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson himself was injured and had to spend several days in the intensive care unit. He was returned to a regular ward on Thursday. It remains unclear when he will be able to return to work.
Secretary of State Dominic Rapp is acting on behalf of Johnson, but there are no clearly defined rules in the event that the prime minister is unable to perform his duties.
A government spokesman said Johnson had recovered at an early stage, but the prime minister was optimistic.
“It is very good news that the Prime Minister is out of intensive care and on the road to recovery. The National Health Authority is there for us and I know its amazing staff is providing him with outstanding global care,” British Health Secretary Matt Hancock said in a tweet on Twitter.
However, Johnson’s father expressed concern that he did not believe his son would return to his office soon.
