The UK Department of Health has increased the preliminary death toll from the pandemic to 43,414, while the number of positives has increased to 309,360, 1,006 more than the balance released on Thursday. The number of diagnostic tests carried out in the United Kingdom is almost nine million.
Johnson, who became infected with the virus and was admitted to the intensive care unit, has urged the population not to give up vigilance, especially before the upcoming reopening of bars and restaurants, which is scheduled for July 4th. “You can believe that you will not get it and that you are immortal and invincible, and it may be true when you are young, but the beetle that you carry can particularly kill older people,” he said.
“To win to defeat this, we have to be vigilant and do everything in a balanced way,” added the British Prime Minister, according to the BBC, when visiting a restaurant in East London.
