100,000 UK Covid deaths: the highest in Europe

The United Kingdom is the first European country to record more than 100,000 deaths linked to the pandemic.

According to the University of Oxford the UK has one of the highest Covid death rates anywhere in the world.

The prime minister Boris Johnson, whose handling of the pandemic has been heavily criticised by some people, said he was “deeply sorry for every life lost” and took “full responsibility for everything that the government has done”.

Almost 250,000 people have been admitted to hospital with Covid since the start of the pandemic.

Professor Chris Whitty, the UK’s chief medical adviser, said there would be many more deaths in the coming weeks.
