Britain's coronavirus death toll jumps by 151 as official number of victims reaches 41,279

Britain’s coronavirus death toll today jumped by only 151 in the lowest increase on a Thursday since March 19, as the outbreak continues to fade.

Department of Health statistics reveal the number of daily laboratory-confirmed Covid-19 fatalities is 14 per cent lower than the 176 recorded last Thursday, and down on the 245 registered yesterday.

The official number of victims now stands at 41,279 — but separate grim figures that take into account suspected and confirmed fatalities say the actual death toll has already surpassed 50,000.

Northern Ireland recorded one Covid-19 death today, spelling an end to its four day spell of having no coronavirus fatalities.

Figures released today also showed there has now been more than 291,000 cases diagnosed since Britain’s crisis began to unfold back in January, including 1,266 yesterday. 

Health Secretary Matt Hancock also tonight confirmed both the numbers of hospital admissions (462) and Covid-19 patients in intensive care on ventilators (440) are continuing to fall. 

Mr Hancock said in this afternoon’s Downing Street briefing the number of deaths in the past week is the lowest since the week ending March 28, before the lockdown, and that the ‘downward trend’ is continuing.   

He was joined by Baroness Dido Harding, head of the test and trace scheme, after damning data released today showed a third of Covid-infected Brits refused to give details of contacts or couldn’t be tracked down. 

Analysis by researchers at the University of Oxford shows that one in five hospital trusts in England (19 per cent) have now not reported a single death from the coronavirus in the past seven days.

Professor Carl Heneghan and Dr Jason Oke found that 26 trusts have counted no deaths for a week, while 64 have recorded none in the past 48 hours. They took the data from a total of 131 major NHS trusts. 

In other coronavirus developments in Britain today: 

  • A former government chief scientist said if Boris Johnson triggered lockdown a week earlier the death toll could have been as low as 10,000;
  • The NHS Test and Trace system has only tracked the contacts of two-thirds of Covid-19 patients, damning figures show as the head of the system admitted it was not yet ‘gold standard’;
  • Rishi Sunak heaped pressure on the Prime Minister to ease the two-metre social distancing rule amid a major Tory revolt over fears the rule could sink tens of thousands of businesses;
  • Research from a symptom-tracking app ran King’s College London suggests cases of Covid-19 in the UK have halved in one week with less than 5,000 new infections per day.

Analysis of the coronavirus deaths data by Professor Carl Heneghan and Dr Jason Oke, at the Centre of Evidence-based Medicine, found that more than two dozen hospitals in England have now not recorded a Covid-19 fatality in a week or more.

HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE REALLY DIED?

Department of Health: 41,279

Department of Health bosses this afternoon revealed the death toll had jumped to 41,279 across all settings, including care homes.  

The daily data does not represent how many Covid-19 patients died within the last 24 hours — it is only how many fatalities have been reported and registered with the authorities. 

It also only takes into account patients who tested positive for the virus, as opposed to deaths suspected to be down to the coronavirus.  

Individual health bodies: 32,191

The Department of Health has a different time cut-off for reporting deaths, meaning daily updates from Scotland as well as Northern Ireland are always out of sync. Wales is not affected, however.

NHS England today revealed it has registered 27,789 lab-confirmed deaths across the country. But the figure only applies to hospitals — meaning fatalities in care homes are excluded from this count.

Scotland has recorded 2,439 coronavirus deaths among patients who have tested positive for the virus, followed by 1,425 in Wales and 538 in Northern Ireland. These tolls include fatalities in all settings. 

National statistical bodies: 51,175

Data compiled by the statistical bodies of each of the home nations show 51,175 people died of either confirmed or suspected Covid-19 across the UK by the end of May.

The real number of victims will be even higher because the tally only takes into account deaths that occurred up until June 7 in Scotland and May 29 in the rest of Britain, meaning it is up to 10 days out of date.

The Office for National Statistics yesterday confirmed that 46,421 people in England and Wales died with confirmed or suspected Covid-19 by May 29.

The number of coronavirus deaths was 754 by the same day in Northern Ireland, according to the Northern Ireland Statistics and Research Agency (NISRA).

National Records Scotland — which collects statistics north of the border — said 4,000 people had died across the country by June 7.

Their tallies are always 10 days behind the Department of Health (DH) because they wait until as many fatalities as possible for each date have been counted, to avoid having to revise their statistics.

Excess deaths: 63,708

The total number of excess deaths has almost reached 64,000. 

Excess deaths are considered to be an accurate measure of the number of people killed by the pandemic because they include a broader spectrum of victims.

As well as including people who may have died with Covid-19 without ever being tested, the data also shows how many more people died because their medical treatment was postponed, for example, or who didn’t or couldn’t get to hospital when they were seriously ill.

Data from England and Wales shows there has been an extra 57,961 deaths since the outbreak took hold, as well as 4,808 in Scotland and 939 in Northern Ireland.

There were 26 out of 131 major NHS trusts which have not announced a death for the past seven days, they said.

These NHS trusts are Alder Hey Children’s Hospital, Dorset County, East and North Hertfordshire, East Sussex, Guy’s and St Thomas’, Homerton University Hospital, James Paget University Hospitals, Mid Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk, North Middlesex, Northern Devon, Oxford University Hospitals, Poole, Royal Cornwall, Royal Surrey County, RUH Bath, Salisbury, Stockport, Taunton and Somerset, The Hillingdon, The Princess Alexandra, Queen Elizabeth Hospital (King’s Lynn), Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch, Torbay and South Devon, Weston Area Health and Whittington Health.   

Almost half (48.9 per cent) have not recorded a death fro 48 hours, but this is likely to come down as more fatalities are confirmed in the coming days.

Department of Health data released today showed that 197,007 tests were carried out yesterday, a figure that included antibody tests for frontline NHS and care workers.

But bosses again refused to say how many people were tested, meaning the exact number of Brits who have been swabbed for the SARS-CoV-2 virus has been a mystery since May 22.

Other data released by the Department of Health and presented at last night’s Downing Street press conference showed 1,266 more people tested positive for Covid-19. It means the official size of the UK’s coronavirus outbreak now sits at 291,409 cases but the true scale of the crisis is estimated to be in the millions. 

The daily data does not represent how many Covid-19 patients died within the last 24 hours — it is only how many fatalities have been reported and registered with the authorities.

The data does not always match updates provided by the home nations. For example, the Scottish government today announced five deaths – but the DH’s geographical breakdown has yet to be released.

The Department of Health has a different time cut-off, meaning daily updates from Scotland as well as Northern Ireland are always out of sync. Wales is not thought to be affected.

NHS England today recorded 83 lab-confirmed Covid-19 deaths in hospitals. Scotland registered five victims in all settings, followed by six in Wales and one in Northern Ireland. 

The further 151 fatalities today came as Sir David King, who was the government’s chief scientist from 2000-2007, said the UK’s coronavirus death toll could have been just 10,000 if Boris Johnson had triggered lockdown a week earlier.

Sir David said today: ‘I believe that we could have emerged at this point with no more than 10,000 deaths by just going into lockdown a week earlier. My second point is that I think the government position was made clear a few times. 

‘Once the PM made a speech about how we would ride through lockdown while other countries were going into lockdown, our economy would grow and we would emerge like Superman.

‘What he was referring to was a policy of herd immunity. I do believe that the government was favouring this idea that we should allow the disease to spread but no more than the NHS could manage to cope with the cases.’ 

The comments, in an interview with ITV’s Good Morning Britain, came after Professor Neil Ferguson, a key figure on SAGE at the beginning of the outbreak, made a similar bombshell claim to MPs yesterday. 

Professor Ferguson, dubbed ‘Professor Lockdown’, said that, in hindsight, tens of thousands of lives could have been saved if the lockdown had come a week earlier.

Mr Johnson imposed the lockdown on March 23 on the back of the Imperial College London scientist’s grim modelling, which predicted 500,000 people could die if the virus was left unchecked.   

Between May 28 and June 3, 8,117 people who tested positive for the coronavirus were referred to the NHS's flagship scheme. But shocking statistics show contact tracers could only get information from 67 per cent of them (5,407)

Of those people who were reached and asked to provide information about their contacts, just over three-quarters (79 per cent) were contacted within 24 hours of their case being transferred to the Test and Trace system. Some 14 per cent were contacted between 24 and 48 hours, 3 per cent between 48 and 72 hours, and 4 per cent were contacted after 72 hours

At the Downing Street briefing last night, Mr Johnson batted away questions over whether the government had made serious mistakes in the pandemic.

‘At the moment it is simply too early to judge ourselves,’ he said. ‘We simply don’t have the answers to all these questions.’

Professor Ferguson also claimed that Britain missed 90 per cent of its coronavirus cases because it was not screening passengers at airports, in a thinly-veiled jab at the Government. 

The epidemiologist told MPs at a virtual House of Commons Science and Technology Committee briefing.: ‘The epidemic was doubling every three to four days before lockdown interventions were introduced.’ 

Research published today estimates fewer than 5,000 people are getting the virus every day in the UK. It suggests the outbreak has almost halved – down 48 per cent – in one week, considering there were 9,400 new cases per day last week.   

DEATH TOLL COULD BE HALF THE 50,000 RECORDED, SAYS SCIENTIST 

Britain’s actual coronavirus death toll could be half of the 50,000 already recorded, according to one expert.

Professor Karol Sikora, a former World Health Organization (WHO) cancer adviser who has gained a huge Twitter following during the crisis, claimed doctors are sometimes too keen to mention the disease on death certificates.

He told The Telegraph the disease would sometimes be named when there was ‘any hint’ it could have been the cause of death, despite having firm proof.

For example in care homes, which have been ravaged by the disease, residents have largely gone untested for the coronavirus. 

If they died, a doctor may say the cause was Covid-19 because their death occurred at the same time the care home had recorded an outbreak. 

During the height of the pandemic when doctors were very busy, they were allowed to verify deaths over the phone if they needed to.

In comparison, Germany — which has recorded fewer than 10,000 deaths — is much stricter about classifying fatalities as being down to Covid-19. 

German medics can only say a death is down to Covid-19 if the clinical team involved in the end-of-life care certify that’s what they believe was to blame. 

Professor Sikora described the UK’s system of recording deaths as ‘woeful’ because it still uses pieces of paper which are passed around a lot of people.

He said: ‘The data collection in Britain is hampered compared to other European countries. It’s not really computerised. It’s bits of paper changing hands… It’s never had an integrated system.’

Professor Sikora said the problem of recording deaths is affecting the exit from lockdown strategy, which takes into account how many people are dying.

He said if the deaths are mainly made up of people who were going to die this year anyway — because they were old — the statistics would need to be re-assessed.  

Professor Sikora’s claim came has come under fire online, with Australian epidemiologist Gideon Meyerowitz-Katz saying on Twitter: ‘What an atrocious take. If anything the evidence runs in the opposite direction.’

Other experts, including Professor Carl Heneghan, director of the Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine, University of Oxford, fear the number of Covid-19 deaths are being under reported.

Speaking at an science media conference on Tuesday, when the latest ONS figures were released, he said: ‘I think there are ways of looking at some of the death certificates of the non Covid to start to understand whether it’s under recording, or excess deaths from other reasons.’  

The estimate from researchers at King’s College London does not include Northern Ireland or care homes, where the virus is still thought to be spreading, meaning the true rate could be much higher.

The figures were based on a sub-group of 1million people who use the COVID Symptom Tracker app, of whom 12,872 carried out swab tests when they began to feel unwell.

The results of these swabs, taken between May 24 to June 6, were extrapolated to the wider population of 66.6million. 

New infections fell 49 per cent in the North West, where 820 people are being struck down every day — down  from 1,608 last week. The South East has seen a 46 per cent drop (365 from 674), followed closely by a 43 per cent decrease in the South West (162 from 284).  

The North East and Yorkshire is reporting the highest number of new infections per day, while the South West is seeing the least, according to the estimate.

But the number fell from 1,965 to 1,275 a reduction of 35 per cent, suggesting that the situation is improving across all regions. 

Cases are still lower in London than the north or east of England. Some 790 people are becoming infected per day, a drop of 27 per cent from last week.

And the R rate — the number of people an infected person passes the virus to — was predicted to be below 1 across all regions. 

The estimate is in line with a government-run surveillance sample but is three times lower than Public Health England’s projected figure of nearly 17,000 a day. 

Lead author of the King’s College London study, Tim Spector, professor of genetic epidemiology, said: ‘Whilst the numbers are falling, thousands of cases of COVID are still very much in the population so measures such as social distancing, regular swab testing, wearing of gloves and face masks in public and maintaining high levels of personal hygiene should be followed closely if we want to keep the numbers low going forward.’ 

It comes as damning figures today showed Number 10’s flagship contact tracing system – considered a crucial part of the puzzle for avoiding a second wave – has only tracked down the contacts of two thirds of Covid-19 patients.

Between May 28 and June 3, 8,117 people who tested positive for the coronavirus were referred to the NHS’s flagship scheme. 

Although this is significantly lower than the number of new positive tests announced by the Government during that time – 13,417 – Professor John Newton, director of health improvement at PHE, said this was mostly a problem with the testing figures.

Professor Newton said: ‘There’s quite a lot of double counting in the numbers of positive tests that are reported daily. We are very confident that the 8,000 includes a very high proportion of the new cases.’ 

But shocking statistics show contact tracers could only draw information about close contacts from 67 per cent of them (5,407).

Hundreds did not respond to phone calls or refused to give details of people they had been in contact with, the Department of Health admitted in another blow to the scheme that  has been described as ‘shambolic’ by workers.

Data from the COVID Symptom Tracker suggested there were 9,400 new infections occurring every day across the UK last week. But the estimate — which involves researchers at King's College London — has been revised and has now dropped by 48 per cent in seven days

BRITAIN’S TEST AND TRACE FAILURE: DATA SHOWS A THIRD OF COVID-INFECTED BRITS REFUSED TO GIVE DETAILS OR COULDN’T BE TRACKED DOWN

Britain’s test and trace fiasco deepened again today after damning figures showed Number 10’s flagship system has only tracked down the contacts of two thirds of Covid-19 patients.

Between May 28 and June 3, 8,117 people who tested positive for the coronavirus were referred to the NHS’s flagship scheme. But shocking statistics show contact tracers could only get information from 67 per cent of them (5,407).

Hundreds did not respond to phone calls or refused to give details of people they had been in contact with, the Department of Health admitted in another blow to the scheme that has been described as ‘shambolic’ by workers.

Baroness Dido Harding — the head of the test and trace scheme — today admitted it wasn’t yet ‘at the gold standard we want to be’. She added: ‘Is it completely perfect? No, of course it isn’t.’

She explained: ‘We won’t have got all of the contacts. Some were unreachable, some didn’t want to provide contacts, some said “well, I’ve already told my mates I tested positive”.’

The data comes as feedback from the Isle of Wight suggested that the NHS’s long-awaited coronavirus contact tracing app — which has yet to be rolled-out — could be an effective way to stop the spread of the disease.

Just two new cases of the illness have been discovered on the island since the app’s initial trial ended on May 26 — a noticeable drop on the 45 cases spotted during the trial, suggesting it stopped patients from infecting other people.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock previously promised the app, then considered a vital part of the government’s test and trace strategy, would be ready to be rolled out across the UK by the middle of May.

He claimed today that the test and trace system is ‘already helping to stop the spread of the virus’. The Health Secretary added the system was ‘key to helping us to return to a more normal way of life.’

But repeated delays have meant the app — now considered the cherry on top of the cake — is still unavailable anywhere except the Isle of Wight.

Staff paid up to £27-an-hour to ring contacts of infected patients have described the test and trace scheme as ‘shambolic’, with call handlers warning the system was ‘obviously not ready’ when it was launched in England at the end of May.

In the first week of the service, 26,985 contacts were successfully reached by someone on the army of 25,000 tracers, meaning the staff, on average, only contacted one person each for the whole week.

Overall 31,794 contacts were identified — the equivalent of almost six (5.8) for every infected patient. Only 26,985 of these contacts — 85 per cent — were tracked down and advised to self-isolate, the statistics revealed.  

Of those people who were reached and asked to provide information about their contacts, just over three-quarters (79 per cent) were contacted within 24 hours of their case being transferred to the Test and Trace system.

Some 14 per cent were contacted between 24 and 48 hours, three per cent between 48 and 72 hours, and four per cent were contacted after 72 hours. 

Finding people fast is vital for the system to work because the plan is for it to find potentially-infected people before they start to show symptoms and pass the virus on to other people.

Baroness Dido Harding — the head of the test and trace scheme — today admitted it wasn’t yet ‘at the gold standard we want to be’. She added: ‘Is it completely perfect? No, of course it isn’t.’

Health Secretary Matt Hancock and Professor Newton said they were happy with how the service has gone so far. 

Professor Newton said the Government was seeing ‘high levels of compliance both from cases and contacts’, and added: ‘In general we’re very pleased to see these data… We’re quite confident that what we’re doing is having a big impact.’ 

Contact tracers try 10 times to reach someone in the first 24 hours after they have been referred to the service, attempting to get through to them by email, phone and text.

But repeated delays have meant the app — now considered the cherry on top of the cake — is still unavailable anywhere except the Isle of Wight.

Baroness Harding was also unable to give a date for the launch of the app which will form part of the test and trace programme she leads. 

She said: ‘This is a multi-channel consumer service, it’s online, it’s on the phone, it’s face-to-face in local communities and, in time, it will have an app. 

‘The app “is the cherry on the cake, it’s not the cake itself and what you are seeing today is the first baking of the cake is going reasonably well”.’

It comes as Prime Minister Boris Johnson faces mounting pressure to reduce the two-metre rule from Tory backbenchers. 

There are increasing signs that the PM is preparing to shift on the crucial issue, with Downing Street sources saying he ‘instinctively’ wants to free up business but fears a second peak. 

Between May 28 and June 3, 8,117 people who tested positive for the coronavirus were referred to the NHS's flagship scheme. But shocking statistics show contact tracers could only get information from 67 per cent of them (5,407)

CANCER TIME BOMB FEARS AS DATA SHOWS 60% DROP IN URGENT REFERRALS IN APRIL 

Thousands of cancers could have been missed due to a huge drop in referrals amid the coronavirus crisis, shocking figures today suggested.

NHS statistics show 79,573 urgent cancer referrals were made by GPs in England in April 2020 — 60 per cent down from 199,217 in April 2019.

Cancer charity MacMillan says roughly 210,000 people should have been referred in April this year, suggesting roughly 130,000 people were missed.

Around 7 per cent of those would usually require cancer treatment, meaning around 9,000 people might have went undiagnosed.

Experts told MailOnline today ‘it’s not that there are less people with cancer, it’s that they are not being diagnosed because of a bottleneck in the NHS’.

The health service is facing a shocking backlog of cases as it tries to return to normal after shutting down most of its services to cope with the pandemic.

Leading charities estimate 2.5million cancer patients have missed out on vital tests and treatment this year because of the crisis.

Figures also showed the number of people waiting over a year for NHS treatment trebled in April, magnifying the damaging knock-on effect of Covid on the nation’s health.

MPs and businesses warn that keeping the restriction in place could sink tens of thousands of businesses. Campaigners say it stops schools reopening properly while pubs and restaurants fear going bust.

The World Health Organization recommends a one-metre restriction – guidance followed by countries such as France, Denmark and Singapore.

However, most of the government’s scientific advisers are thought to want to stick to two metres until infections fall further.

Rishi Sunak has now joined the major Tory revolt – the Chancellor held a 90 minute session with the 1,922 committee of Tory backbenchers yesterday where he is said to have backed calls to slash the two-metre rule. 

He warned that 3.5million jobs could be lost unless people start going back to shops. 

Mr Sunak highlighted warnings from business about the dire consequences of the limit, and pointed out dozens of countries have already relaxed it to one metre. 

He said he was ‘sympathetic’ to concerns that sectors of the economy cannot get up and running until the situation changes.

Former Tory Cabinet minister Damian Green insisted other countries had managed safely with one metre.

‘I would combine it with much greater mask-wearing,’ he said. ‘If we don’t do this it will be the end for many pubs and restaurants.’

Iain Duncan Smith, a former Tory leader, said: ‘The number one and single most important priority to unlock the economy is getting the distance down to one metre.

‘The difference between one and two metres is the difference between opening the economy properly and seeing it bump along at the bottom without being able to bounce back. The hospitality sector simply can’t make a living at two metres.

‘It’s restrictive at one metre but at least they can come close to making it work. And it’s impossible to run public transport properly at two metres.’
