Today's hospital death toll was also the lowest daily rise since May 25 and the second lowest since the start of the UK lockdown on March 25. May 25 has so far recorded the lowest hospital death toll in lockdown, when 77 patients died. The total coronavirus death toll in the UK has risen by 204 to 40,465 today - this figure includes deaths in hospitals, care homes and the community.

The new estimates suggest the R is between 0.7 and 1.0 in England, 1 in the South West and 1.01 in the North West.
