More than 11,600 people have died from coronavirus in care homes across the UK since the start of the pandemic, figures suggest.

But for the second week running, the review of death certificates by statisticians showed the number of new deaths has fallen.

In the week to 8 May, there were 1,940 care home deaths linked to coronavirus – down from 2,800 the week before.

Overall, care home deaths account for over a quarter of the virus fatalities.
