Britain now has Europe's second-highest coronavirus death toll

The UK now has Europe’s second-highest official COVID-19 death toll. Some 26,097 people in the UK have died after testing positive for COVID-19 as of April 28 at 16:00 GMT, Public Health England (PHE) said on Wednesday.

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said there were 756 more deaths in all settings reported on Tuesday compared with the day before.

The UK has suffered more coronavirus deaths than France or Spain have officially reported, though fewer than Italy, which has Europe’s highest death toll and the second-worst in the world after the US.
