The number of people to have died as a result of coronavirus has increased.

As of 9am today, a total of 143,186 people have been tested for the virus, of which 25,150 tested positive.

As of 5pm last night, of those hospitalised in the UK, 1,789 have died, according to the Department of Health.

The figures for test results and for deaths are compiled from different sources and this is why the figures for deaths are reported from an earlier point in time than the figures for test results.

Some people who report symptoms are not being tested - they are not included in these figures and therefore the number of cases is thought to be much higher.
