The UK has more than 177,000 confirmed cases and 27,000 deaths from Covid-19. This is reflected in the recent review released by Health Minister Matt Hancock this Friday, which emphasized the goal of conducting 100,000 tests in the EU in April.
After the last balance, there were 6,201 more cases and 739 deaths on the last day, which corresponds to a balance of 177,454 confirmed cases and 27,510 deaths. In addition, there are currently more than 15,000 hospital patients.
“I can announce that we have achieved our goal,” said Hancock at the daily press conference to report the pandemic in Downing Street, saying that a total of 122,347 clinical trials were conducted in April.
Thanks to the establishment of this “bold goal”, the minister defended: “Now we are making real progress.” With this in mind, he stressed that further testing is only the first step in the government’s plan, which now includes progress in locating and monitoring cases and contacts.
