A further 103 people have died within 28 days of a positive Covid-19 test, while another 28,612 lab confirmed cases of coronavirus have been recorded.

The figures, recorded in the 24 hours to 9am on Saturday, bring the UK's death toll to 130,281, according to figures released by the Department of Health.

Separate figures published by the Office for National Statistics show there have been 155,000 deaths registered in the UK where Covid-19 was mentioned on the death certificate.

Also on Saturday, nearly all of Wales' remaining Covid restrictions were lifted after the first minister announced the country would move to Alert Level Zero.

This means there are no limits on meeting with others indoors and all businesses can reopen including nightclubs - but face coverings remain a requirement in most indoor places and on public transport.


Of the 103 UK deaths, 88 were recorded in England, and 25,877 Covid cases were confirmed.


Scotland recorded a further nine coronavirus deaths and 1,386 deaths.
