British Health Minister Matt Hancock has reported 288 deaths in the last 24 hours, the lowest number in more than a month, totaling 28,734 deaths. In the meantime, authorities have already launched the mobile case tracking application with a test on the Isle of Wight.
Hancock has highlighted the drop in the death toll, despite admitting that weekend deaths typically decrease. Hancock indicated that the capacity to perform 108,000 tests in a day was reached.
Monday’s coronavirus bulletin also shows that 204 of the deaths occurred in England (21,384 in total), while there were five deaths in Scotland (1,576 in total).
The Deputy Director of the National Health System of England, Jonathan Van-Tam, will also appear on Monday, pointing out a “slow but steady decline” in deaths.
