Biggest daily rise in UK deaths – up by 87 to 422 with 8077 confirmed cases

The UK has now begun a three-week lockdown in a bid to prevent the spread or coronavirus.

But sadly 87 people have died in the last 24 hours taking numbers to 422 with 8077 confirmed cases.

The Prime Minster urged millions of Britons to stay at home to help stop the spread of the disease during the televised address on Monday Night.

But enabled key workers the ability to travel to and from work.

Prisons in England and Wales have also been put on immediate lockdown, with all visits cancelled.
