The daily COVID-19 figures have been announced for the UK and sadly another 25 people have died due to the disease.
These further deaths bring the total number of deaths in the UK to 43,575.
As of 9am on Monday June 29 a further 93,881 tests had been conducted and 815 have tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 24 hours.
In the figures released by the government the daily number of people tested was yet again ‘unavailable’.
However, as low as the number of deaths is there is believed to be a delay in figures over the weekend and as government figures do not include all deaths involving COVID-19 across the UK, it is though the total number could be closer to 54,000.
Although, unfortunately, deaths have been recorded in England, Northern Ireland and Wales, this is the fourth consecutive day Scotland has reported no new COVID-19 deaths.
The latest increase is the second lowest total announced on a Monday in lockdown after 21 fatalities were reported on June 22.
In the weeks before that, 32 deaths were announced on June 15, 62 on June 8, 115 on June 1 and 77 on May 25.
The highest increase on a Monday was 697 on April 13 when the UK was said to be in the peak of the crisis.
