The death toll at the UK’s coronavirus hospital has risen to 250 before Boris Johnson’s ‘Covid Winter Plan’ was announced.
The death toll rose to the highest Sunday since May 3, when 356 people died.
The death toll from the new coronavirus hospital in England has risen to 222, seven in Scotland, 11 in Wales and 10 more in Northern Ireland.
The death toll at the hospital rose to 188 last Sunday.
The previous Sunday, November 7, another 1,161 patients died, and the previous Sunday, November 1, there were 13 deaths.
Yesterday the number of UK coronavirus hospital deaths rose to 391, the highest Saturday increase since May.
Carnavirus-related deaths have risen to 316 in hospitals in England, 37 more in Scotland, the death toll in Wales has risen to 28 and 10 more have been tragically recorded in Northern Ireland.
The Scottish government says seven people have died from the coronavirus in the past 24 hours and 644 have tested positive.
New figures show the death toll under this measure – those who tested positive for the virus in the previous 28 days – has risen to 3,503.
The positive rate of daily testing is 5.4%, down from 5.9% compared to the previous day.
A total of 6,3611 people tested positive in Scotland, up from 6, 51. More than that.
Of the new cases, 309 were in Greater Glasgow and Clyde, 181 in Lanarkshire and 119 in Lothian.
Within 24 hours, 23 people were diagnosed with 1,170 viruses at the hospital.
Of these patients, 95 are in intensive care, below five.
Another 10 died of covid-19 in Northern Ireland, the Department of Health said.
The death toll posed by the department now stands at 933.
A further 342 confirmed documents of the virus were recorded during the last 24 hour reporting period.
A total of 49,784 people have tested positive for Covid-19 since the outbreak began in Northern Ireland.
The latest figures come as Boris Johnson is expected to make a Commons statement on Monday to announce his “Covid Winter Plan”.
Mr Johnson expects the lockdown in England to end on December 2.
Once this is done, England will be placed under a three-tier regional restriction system – as it was before the lockout, but with stricter measures.
A spokesman said: “It will also determine how people will see their loved ones at Christmas, even if the ministers are clear it will not be a festive time.”
Statistician Professor Sir David Spiezhalter has previously said that the country could have done better if it had spent the winter with the same deaths as the bad flu season.
He told Times Radio on Sunday that it was possible only with limited action – even after the deaths of several thousand people.
Sir David, a statistician at the Winton Center for Risk and Evidence Communication at Cambridge University, added: “This is going to be a bad year. Thousands of Kovids are going to die in the winter and we can do very little about that.
“It would be great to see it as a bad flu season overall, especially with very few flu cases,” he said.
“There will be people who will say, ‘Why did we have all this noise when it was just like the bad flu season?’
“Don’t listen to them. This is real misinformation.
“If we can escape from there, something that looks like a bad flu year, we’ll do very well.”
