An 18-year-old died of Covid-19, marking the UK’s youngest fatality as 47 new victims brought Britain’s death toll to 281.

The total number of coronavirus cases in the UK is now at 5,683 and the Prime Minister warned the British public today that they had 24 hours to take social distancing measures seriously or he will implement an Italian-style total lockdown.
Earlier, in a message to the nation, the Prime Minister warned Britain was only ‘two or three’ weeks behind Italy where the death toll has already risen above 4,000 making it the worst outbreak anywhere in the world.
