    UK reports no new Covid death for first time since March 2020 - Times of India
    LONDON: Britain did not record any new deaths in the 28 days since the positive Covid-19 test on Tuesday. The last time Britain did not die was in March 2020, before the country entered the first blockade.
    The figure on Tuesday refers to the number of deaths reported following a national holiday on Monday – a factor that has turned the tide in the past. Britain’s total pandemic death toll stands at 1.27782 and is the fifth highest in the world, according to Johns Hopkins. The data showed 3,165 new cases, generally level the previous day.
    “The whole country will be so happy that there were no Kovic-related deaths yesterday,” said Health Minister Matt Hancock, adding that the vaccines were clearly working. But, he said, people still had to take precautions. The milestone will boost calls for the final stages of unlocking the economy on June 21. The Boris Johnson government has warned that it will have to wait for more data on the spread of the variant first identified in India before announcing by June 14 whether the easing of restraint can proceed. Scientists have called for attention. Cambridge professor Ravi Gupta warned of a third wave: “All waves start with low numbers that growl in the background and then become explosive.”
