The death toll from COVID-19 in British hospitals rose by 586 to 21,678 as of 1600 GMT on Monday, health secretary Matt Hancock said.

Hancock added that from tomorrow the government will publish not just the number of deaths in hospital each day, but also the number of deaths in care homes and in the community.

“Building on successful pilots, we will be rolling out testing of asymptomatic residents and staff in care homes in England, and to patients and staff in the NHS,” Mr Hancock said.
