COVID-19 deaths in the UK have risen by 598 in the biggest 24-hour jump in more than six months.

Cases hit 1.4 million on Tuesday as another 20,051 people tested positive for coronavirus.

Tuesday‘s death toll is the highest since May 12, over six months ago – when the daily figure reached 614.

But while case numbers seem to be flattening, the 20,052 figure today pushed Britain’s case total over the 1.4 million mark.

And with nearly 600 additional deaths in the last 24 hours, the total death toll stands at 52,745.

This time last week – November 10 – 532 deaths and 20,412 cases were reported.

In England, a further 330 people died in hospital – one of them a 30-year-old with no underlying health conditions.

Patients were aged between 27 and 99.

Hardest-hit was the northwest, where 87 people lost their lives, followed by the Midlands, with 86 deaths, and the northeast and Yorkshire, with 63 fatalities.

Another 24 deaths were recorded in London, 29 in the east of England, 22 in the southeast and 19 in the southwest.

In Scotland – where nearly two million will go into strict new lockdowns, with pubs shutting but schools staying open – 1248 new cases were reported, and 37 people died.

Another nine people have died in Northern Ireland, with 549 new cases.

And in Wales, which emerged from a firebreak lockdown just over a week ago, 705 new infections were confirmed and 34 died.
