A further 350 people were recorded as having died in hospital across the UK, which is the lowest number since 30 March.
England recorded 329 deaths, whilst Scotland recorded 13 and Wales recorded eight. The sharp fall could mean that the UKs pandemic could be coming to an end.
The Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Monday morning from Downing Street that “we are near the end of the first phase.”
Johnson said there are “real signs” the UK is making “progress.”
But he warned it also the “moment of maximum risk” and now is not the time to “go easy” on coronavirus by loosening “social distancing’ rules.”
“We are now beginning to turn the tide.
“’I ask you to contain your impatience because I believe now we are coming to the end of the first phase of this conflict,” he said.
