Britain's coronavirus hospital death toll has climbed to 21,749 after 633 new fatalities were reported, but the daily total continues to trend downwards, APA reports citing The Mirrors. 

England reported 546 new deaths, Scotland had 70 and Wales recorded 17. Northern Ireland has not yet announced its latest totals.

Earlier today Nicola Sturgeon told Scottish people to wear face masks in shops and on public transport.

The country's first minister made the suggestion ahead of the other devolved UK Governments.

A minute's silence was held at 11am to remember the UK's key workers who have died during the coronavirus pandemic.
