Monday's UK government coronavirus briefing

Monday's briefing from Downing Street was hosted by Dominic Raab at 18:00 CEST (17:00 BST). In the briefing Raab said the entire UK government was "united in its national mission" to beat Covid-19. He also paid tribute to members of the public who heeded advice to stay locked down over Easter. "The overwhelming majority of people stayed at home... by staying home this weekend you've saved lives", said the foreign secretary.

Raab also said that although there were positive signs from the coronavirus data the "UK is still not past the peak".

Boris Johnson he owes his life to NHS after coronavirus scare

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he owed his life to hospital staff, in his first comments since leaving intensive care for coronavirus treatment, while his government came under mounting pressure to explain why the death toll was rising so fast.

Britain has reported two days in a row of hospital deaths increasing by more than 900 people. Friday's death toll of 980 surpassed the highest recorded in a single day in Italy, the hardest hit country in Europe so far.

The British government has had to defend its response, which has included carrying out far less testing than in some other European countries and ordering a lockdown that came comparatively late. Ministers have also resisted apologising for a shortage of protective gear for hospital staff.

Johnson, 55, was taken to St Thomas's Hospital in central London on April 5, suffering from persistent symptoms of the disease caused by the new coronavirus. On April 6 he was moved into intensive care, where he remained until April 9.

"I can't thank them enough. I owe them my life," Johnson said of the staff of Britain's state-run National Health Service at the hospital, in his first comments since being moved back to a regular ward. The comments were released to journalists and confirmed by his office on Sunday.
