The UK has become the first country in Europe to pass 60,000 coronavirus deaths, according to the latest government figures

A total of 60,113 people have died within 28 days of a positive Covid test, up 414 in the past 24 hours.
Two other ways of measuring deaths – where Covid-19 is mentioned on the death certificate, and the number of “excess deaths” for this time of year – give higher total figures.
Only the US, Brazil, India and Mexico have recorded more Covid-19 deaths than the UK, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.
