More from Covid-19

The home nations' daily numbers added together are often not the same as the Department of Health's statistic as they are collated at different times.

The DoH's fatality figure only includes people who have tested positive for COVID-19.

An alternative measure is from the Office for National Statistics, which is based on all mentions of COVID-19 on a death certificate, including suspected COVID-19.

The ONS has said 35,044 deaths involving COVID-19 were registered in England and Wales up to 9 May.

Across the UK, the number of deaths involving COVID-19 that have been registered stands at 38,355.
