People who died from covid-19 but had not tested positive are not included and people who died from covid-19 more than 28 days after their first positive test are not included.

In the UK there have been 42,268 deaths associated with coronavirus.

There have been 467,146 positive tests for the virus to date across the nation, with 6,968 people testing positive on Friday (October 2).

According to the NHS, the main symptoms of coronavirus are:

• A high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)

• A new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or three or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)

• A loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

If you have any of the main symptoms of covid-19, get as soon as possible.

Then stay at home and do not have visitors until you get your test result – only leave your home to have a test.
