Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailymail.co.uk: “Britain records just FOUR Covid deaths in lowest toll since September”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Britain today announced four coronavirus deaths in the lowest daily count since September 7 — when just three victims were added to the official toll.

Department of Health figures showed there were also 2,963 new infections in the past 24 hours, down 17 per cent on last week's figure of 3,568. 

Today's Covid deaths are the lowest they've been in more than seven months, after falling by almost 70 per cent compared to last Monday's 13. 

There is no indication that opening outdoor pubs, gyms and hairdressers last week, or reintroducing the rule of six late last month, has caused any uptick in cases. Coronavirus metrics are usually low on Mondays due to the way test results and fatalities are logged, but ministers will take confidence in the fact both cases and deaths are down significantly from last Monday. 

The statistics will inevitably pile more pressure on Boris Johnson to speed up his roadmap out of lockdown, with the next relaxation not due for almost another month.
