A further four people have died with COVID-19 in the UK and there have been 2,357 more cases reported in the latest 24-hour period.
Today’s numbers compare with one death within 28 days of a positive test and 1,649 cases last Monday.
Total deaths since the start of the pandemic stand at 127,609.
The latest government daily figures also show another 100,626 people had a first dose of a coronavirus vaccine and 187,171 had their second dose.
It means 17,856,550 are now fully vaccinated, while 35,472,295 have had at least one shot.
The government has said it will offer all adults a jab by the end of July, and in England anyone over 40 is now eligible.
