Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailymail.co.uk: “UK's coronavirus death toll jumps to 474”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Britain's growing coronavirus death toll today jumped to 578 after 113 more fatalities were confirmed across the home nations, making today the UK's darkest day yet in the escalating outbreak. 

Health officials also more than 2,100 new patients had tested positive for the life-threatening infection, meaning almost 12,000 cases of COVID-19 have now been recorded in Britain. 

It comes after the UK yesterday posted 43 coronavirus deaths, sparking hope that Prime Minister Boris Johnson's unprecedented lockdown was working to control the ever-worsening crisis.

But officials changed the timings of how they counted deaths, with yesterday's total only taking into account an eight-hour period. Today's shocking figure represents a full 24-hour count.
