Britain's coronavirus death toll has passed 10,000, after another 737 people died from the virus in the latest count, the health ministry said on Sunday.

The increase was lower than the nearly 1,000 fatalities recorded on each of the previous two days, but means Britain still has one of the highest COVID-19 daily death rates globally.
