The UK Health Ministry has confirmed this Thursday 454 deaths from COVID-19, a lower figure than the fatalities confirmed during the previous day, about 740.
Thus, the deaths due to COVID-19 on British soil are already 119,387, while 4,083,242 people have contracted the disease since the pandemic began, 12,057 of them notified in the last 24 hours.
This figure is in line with those registered in recent days, with 12,700 confirmed cases on Wednesday. In this sense, a study prepared by Imperial College London and published this Thursday has concluded that England has experienced a “sharp decline” in coronavirus infections since January.
Specifically, and since the confinement began, the rates of new infections in England have decreased by two thirds, while in London the decrease reaches 80 percent, as reported by the BBC. Prime Minister Boris Johnson is expected to outline the ‘road map’ on Monday to relax the lockdown in the European country.
