More than 1,000 people died every day in the UK for 22 consecutive days as Government is accused of


The Government was accused last night of underplaying the coronavirus death toll after it emerged more than 1,000 people died every day in the UK for 22 consecutive days.

The figures, which reflect deaths in hospitals, care homes and private homes, dwarf those that were announced by ministers at the time, which only took hospital fatalities into account.

Fresh analysis has shown that there were more than 1,000 deaths a day for 22 consecutive days - coinciding with Boris Johnson's hospitalisation for coronavirus.

Sir David King, the former government chief scientific adviser and chairman of the independent Sage group, told the Guardian the discrepancy in the numbers was 'an attempt to play down the adversity that the country was faced with'.

Britain's worst day during the crisis came on April 8, just before Easter, when a record 1,445 people died in 24 hours.

When Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab stepped in for the hospitalised Boris Johnson on April 9 to reveal the figures from the previous day, he announced the number of deaths had risen by 881 - meaning the true tally was some 64 per cent greater than the nation was told at the time.
