More than 5,000 Covid-19 deaths occurred in the UK over Christmas and the new year, latest figures show.

A total of 5,085 people died from December 24 to January 1, all of whom had tested positive for Covid-19 within 28 days of their death.

This figure is likely to rise as further deaths are recorded.

The full death toll for this period, which includes everyone who had Covid-19 recorded on their death certificate, will not be known until later in January.

The latest figures, based just on people who died 28 days after testing positive, show that 546 deaths took place on Christmas Eve and 563 deaths occurred on Christmas Day.
