UK reports zero daily coronavirus deaths since last March

London: Britain reported zero daily coronavirus-related deaths for the first time since March last year, according to official figures released on June 1.

The total number of coronavirus-related deaths in Britain remain at 127,782. These figures only include the deaths of people who died within 28 days of their first positive test.

Another 3,165 people in Britain have tested positive for Covid-19, bringing the total number of coronavirus cases in the country to 4,490,438, according to the official figures, Xinhua news agency reported.

Professor Adam Finn from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunization, which advises the government on vaccine priority, said the country remains vulnerable as large numbers of people remain unvaccinated.

More than 39.4 million people, about three-quarters of adults in Britain, have been given the first jab of the coronavirus vaccine, according to the latest official figures.

Experts have warned that coronavirus may continue to evolve for years to come, and eventually, it is likely current vaccines will fail to protect against transmission, infection, or even against diseases caused by newer variants.
