UK overtakes Italy with Europe’s highest coronavirus death tollUK overtakes Italy with Europe’s highest coronavirus death toll

United Kingdom has overtaken Italy to report the highest official death toll from coronavirus in Europe, figures released on Tuesday showed, increasing pressure on Prime Minister Boris Johnson over his response to the crisis.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson will consider evidence provided by scientists at a review on Thursday and then will want to get the decisions right on what next steps Britain should take against the coronavirus outbreak, his spokesman said on Tuesday.

Asked whether Johnson would make a statement unveiling measures covering the next phase of Britain’s plan against the novel coronavirus, the spokesman said: “I think what matters is that we get this right, that we fully consider all the evidence and ensure that we can communicate the next steps whatever they may be in a very clear way to the public.”
