NHS England announced there were 350 deaths, with 50 in Scotland, 16 in Wales and nine in Northern Ireland.
A World Health Organization (WHO) official Dr Margret Harris has revealed the effectiveness of the Boris Johnsons’ strategy in gradually easing the lockdown.
Dr Harris praised the British governments approach as “appropriate” and that the UK has one huge “advantage.”
Countries such as South Korea and Germany are ahead over their lockdown easing measures which has started a debate on how different countries are taking their approach.
Speaking over the effectiveness of the government strategy she said we are learning from other countries who have a “few ships further along.”
