UK COVID-19 death toll rises 282 to 36,675

The United Kingdom's death toll from confirmed cases of COVID-19 rose by 282 to 36,675, the government said.

"Tragically, 36,675 people have now died," Transport Secretary Grant Shapps told reporters at a Downing Street briefing. The government publishes the death toll based on those who definitely had COVID-19; broader figures based on suspected COVID-19 deaths give a bigger toll.
