The death toll in the U.K. from coronavirus has climbed up to 2,118 with 209 new deaths in the past 24 hours, according to figures released by health officials on Sunday.
Axar.az reports citing foreign media.
The figures came as a chief scientific adviser has warned that full lockdown could be in place until June.
Prof. Neil Ferguson, the government's leading epidemiology adviser, said the U.K. public would have to remain in their homes for nearly three months as the disease is contributing to rising numbers in the country.
“We're going to have to keep these measures the full lockdown in place, in my view, for a significant period of time - probably until the end of May, maybe even early June. May is optimistic,” Ferguson told The Sunday Times.
