Globall, more than 100,000 people have now died having tested positive for a virus (101,732), a grim milestone. On the same day, the UK announced the highest number of people to die in a single 24-hour period. 980 people died in the most recent 24-hour period, a higher number of people to die in a single day in either Spain or Italy at their peak (971 people died on 28th March in Italy, and 950 people died in Spain on the 3rd April). A slightly higher number of people – 987 died in France – the highest number in a single day for a European country so far. 10 people have also died in Gloucestershire in the past 24 hours. We believe this is the highest number of people to have died in a single day in the County so far.
