The number of people who have died after testing positive in the UK has risen by 38.

The Department of Health and Social Care said 41,736 people had died in hospitals, care homes and the wider community after testing positive for coronavirus in the UK as of 5pm on Sunday, up by 38 from 41,698 the day before.

The Government figures do not include all deaths involving Covid-19 across the UK, which is thought to have passed 52,000.

The DHSC also said in the 24-hour period up to 9am on Monday, 93,163 tests were carried out or dispatched, with 1,056 positive results.

Overall, a total of 6,866,481 tests have been carried out and 296,857 cases have been confirmed positive.

The figure for the number of people tested has been “temporarily paused to ensure consistent reporting” across all methods of testing.

The news comes as footfall in England was up by almost half on Monday morning, according to the latest data from retail experts Springboard.

Retail footfall across high streets, shopping centres and retail parks in England increased by 41.7% in comparison to last week.

Footfall in England’s high streets alone was up by 51.7%, Springboard said.

Monday’s reopening of non-essential shops has driven down the year-on-year decline to -34.2% across all retail destinations in England and to -41.2% in England’s high streets, the organisation said.

Footfall across all retail destinations in England is around a third less than on the same day last year, it added.
