ABOUT 563 persons died of Coronavirus in Britain yesterday to bring the total fatalities to 2,352 deaths.

  This is the first time national toll has exceeded 500 in two  hours since the pandemic took its worst turn in United Kingdom.

  The figures were obtained from a release issued by Ministry of Health.

  “As of 5pm (1600 GMT) on 31 March, those hospitalised in the UK who tested positive for coronavirus, 2,352 have sadly died,” the Health Ministry said on its official Twitter page.

  The release further stated that 29,474 people have now tested positive increasing total cases by 4,324 over the previous day.

  Britain locked down last week in an attempt to combat the virus but Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who himself has tested positive, warned that it would get worse before it gets better. Boris tested positive after Prince Charles was coming out of isolation.

  According to Johnson, nobody can correctly say when the pandemic will end. But he believes it will end.

   “Until it does, let us all try and live with hope and, with faith in ourselves and each other look forward to better times to come,” he said.

  However, reports indicate that a Kwara State-born medical doctor was among patients who died of COVID-19.
