The Department of Health have announced on Sunday afternoon the death toll has risen by 48 to 281, confirmed coronavirus victims.

They said, “At 9am on Sunday, 78,340 people had been tested in the UK.

“The number of infections has risen by 635 in 24 hours to 5,683.”

Public Health Wales have confirmed that seven more people have died in the country.

Chief medical officer for Wales Dr Frank Atherton said, “It is with deep sadness I can confirm a further seven deaths of patients in Wales who tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19).

“This takes the number of deaths in Wales to 12.”

A senior NHS doctor has expressed his fears that staff could be passing on the coronavirus to patients as they are not being provided with tests.

The doctor wrote about his experiences and said there is “little we can do” and victims are dying in front of his eyes.

It has been revealed that there is a huge shortage of protective equipment for medical staff and they are not tested unless they show symptoms.

He warned that not everyone shows symptoms immediately but can still be carriers and fears “as a doctor could be a silent killer” passing on coronavirus to patients.

The British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson has ordered all Britons to immediately “Stay at home” over the “war” of the coronavirus pandemic.

LondonLovesBusiness understand that Whitehall sources are suggesting to impose a total lockdown across the capital as people are still gathering in crowds which will result in people dying as a direct result.

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan gave a grave warning to Londoners, to anyone that leaves their home during the coronavirus outbreak to “stop social mixing or many more people will die.”

Khan said, “We need to make sure there is no mixed messages here. People should not be leaving their homes unless they really have to.

“We should not be having social interaction. By mixing that leads to more people dying.
