Across the UK, 16,060 people have died with coronavirus pandemic in hospitals, as of 5pm on 18 April – the latest official UK-wide figures available.

This figure, and the numbers below, are expected to be higher when non-hospital deaths are taken into account.

  • In England the total number of COVID-19 deaths in hospitals is 14,400
  • A total of 575 people have died in Wales
  • There have been 194 deaths reported in Northern Ireland
  • In Scotland903 people who tested positive for COVID-19 have died

The tallies for individual nations can differ from the UK-wide total, because they are calculated on a different time-frame.

In terms of testing, 372,967 people have been tested across the UK, of which 120,067 tested positive.

We expect to hear another update on these figures this afternoon (UK time).
