Prime Minister Boris Johnson gave a speech this morning outside 10 Downing Street as he returned to work after being treated for Coronavirus.

He said: "I want to thank you, the people of this country, for the sheer grit and guts you have shown and are continuing to show.

"Every day I know that this virus brings new sadness and mourning to households across the land and it is still true that this is the biggest challenge this country has faced since the war.

"And yet it is also true that we are making progress with fewer hospital admissions, fewer Covid patients in ICU and real signs now that we are passing through the peak."

Figures from Public Health England yesterday showed Norfolk has had a rise of 47 positive cases in the last 24-hour reported period, taking its total up from 1,268 to 1,315, with Suffolk having another 19 cases, now totalling 896.

The number of COVID-19 associated deaths in hospitals recorded in the previous 24-hour period has seen a drop of 400 to 413 deaths.

That takes the total number of deaths so far to 20,732.

The amount of reported positive cases in the UK as a whole for the 24-hour period has also seen a slight drop too, from 4,913 to 4,463.

That takes the total number of laboratory confirmed coronavirus cases in the UK so far to 152,840.
