Health chiefs across Britain today announced 209 more Covid-19 deaths, taking the official number of victims to 37,257, APA reports citing Daily Mail. 

Department of Health bosses have yet to publish the final daily figures, which includes deaths across all settings among Britons who tested positive for the coronavirus. 

The preliminary tally - which is often much lower than the number given by officials - is calculated by adding up all of the individual counts given by each of the home nations.

NHS England today recorded 183 Covid-19 fatalities in hospitals, while Scotland registered 13 deaths, Wales 11 and Northern Ireland two from all locations, including care homes.
