Today the Office for National Statistics released new figures on the number of deaths involving coronavirus. Unlike the previous statistics given out daily by the Department of Health, these include deaths in the community that were linked to Covid-19.

According to ONS data, there were 210 deaths up to Friday 20 March, which was the day pubs and clubs were ordered to shut down.

That is 40 more (a 24 per cent increase) than the NHS figure of 170 released at that time.
