England, Scotland and Wales have announced 601 more hospital patients have died of the coronavirus.

The new fatalities take the total number of fatalities in the UK to 22,279.

A full-UK roundup is expected later today from the Department of Health, which has pledged to include care home and non-hospital victims for the first time.
The Department posted on Twitter that the new statistics, expected to include a ‘substantial’ number of care home residents, will be published later this afternoon.

When the non-hospital deaths are included in today’s count they will be backdated into early March and are expected to cause a surge of thousands in the UK’s total death toll.
Today’s daily count is expected to increase but remain in the hundreds. .
