    The number of people who have died across the world is now more than three million, according to Johns Hopkins University in America who have tallied this number since the beginning of last year. 

    This comes as the latest 24-hour government figures show nearly 120,000 people received their first dose of the Covid vaccine yesterday. Nearly half a million people had their second dose – a new record. More than 32 million people have now received their first dose of a vaccine and nine and a half million people have had both doses.

    The global death figures have surged again in recent days due to variants of the disease hammering health workers.
