Covid-19 deaths registered in England and Wales continue to rise
The Independent says the number of deaths involving coronavirus registered each week in England and Wales is continuing to increase, though it has yet to reach the level seen at the start of this year.
A total of 960 deaths registered in the seven days to April 8 mentioned Covid-19 on the death certificate, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS).
This is up 13 per cent on the previous week and is the third clear week-on-week rise in a row.
The figures confirm deaths are once again on an upwards trend, following several weeks where the numbers appeared to have levelled off.
