The UK coronavirus death toll has dipped slightly after 847 deaths recorded in 24 hours, taking the total to 14,576.
Official figures now show the daily fatalities have been under 900 for six days in a row.
The official death toll is feared to be higher as the figures only include deaths from hospitals, excluding care homes.
The figures come after a leading public health expert dramatically warned today Britain could suffer 40,000 coronavirus deaths in the first wave of the outbreak.
Professor Anthony Costello, of University College London, accused the Government of dragging its heels in its handling of the pandemic.
