Further 213 people who tested positive for Covid-19 die in London hospitals

Latest figures show a further 213 people who tested positive for coronavirus have died in hospitals in London.

The figure brings the total number of reported deaths in London hospitals of patients who tested positive to 2,120.

Today's figure is one of the biggest daily rises according to data released by NHS England.

Downing Street has hinted coronavirus lockdown restrictions will not be relaxed following a review next week, as it urged people to remain indoors over the Easter weekend.

A Cobra meeting due to be held later by First Secretary Dominic Raab will involve lockdown review discussions with leaders of the devolved nations.

But ahead of any decision, Welsh First Minister Mark Drakeford, Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon and Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden warned against any relaxation decision.
