London's coronavirus death toll has risen to 729, according to London Mayor Sadiq Khan.
Speaking to ITV News Mr Khan also warned the peak of the virus may be another four weeks away.
"When we get to the peak that's the worst part of the disease with the largest number of deaths," Mr Khan added.
London's hospitals are also facing huge demand for intensive care beds with the new NHS Nightingale at London's ExCel Centre supplying about half the amount needed.
Sadiq Khan said the NHS Nightingale would not be open to walk-in patients and would only accept admissions from the London Ambulance Service.
