The latest increase in deaths has risen by another 50 per cent in 24 hours – after 563 people died in a single day.
The total number of patients who have died in hospital after testing positive for coronavirus has gone up from 1,789 to 2,352.
The worrying trend suggests the spike in deaths is getting steeper.
The number of people who have tested positive for coronavirus in Britain has also gone up from 25,150 to 29,474 as the pandemic spreads.
The number of people tested for the deadly disease in the UK has also now passed 150,000.
The youngest coronavirus victim is 13-year-old boy after dying from the disease at King’s College Hospital in London on Monday 30 March.
Ismail Mohamed Abdulwahab, 13, from Brixton, South West London, had no underlying health conditions.
Tragically, his mum and six siblings were not able to be with him in his final moments.
He was a “very healthy” teenager and had first fallen ill on March 23 with Covid-19 symptoms.
Three days later, Ismail’s condition worsened and was rushed to hospital where medics put him on a ventilator.
“He died on Monday 30 March at 3am from a cardiac arrest.”
