    The UK has officially surpassed 100,000 coronavirus deaths since the pandemic began, Boris Johnson has confirmed.

    “It’s hard to compute the sorrow contained in that grim statistic: The years of life lost, the family gatherings not attended and for so many relatives the missed chance to even say goodbye,” the Prime Minister said.

    “This is a sobering moment in the pandemic, these are not just numbers,” added Dr Yvonne Doyle, medical director at Public Health England.

    “Each death is a person who was someone’s family member and friend.”
