Britain's coronavirus death toll has jumped by 980 in the last 24 hours - making it the biggest rise yet and more deadly than Spain's worst day of their outbreak.
The grim figures also reveal the total number of cases has risen to 70,272 - up from 65,077 infections the day prior. During Spain's worst day of their coronavirus outbreak, 961 people died.
The jump in deaths is also higher than virus-ravaged Italy’s worst day when 919 people died.
The Health Secretary also announced that care homes and GP surgeries will be able to order masks from an Amazon-style NHS store that will deliver protective kit much faster.
