The number of people who have died across the UK after contracting coronavirus has risen by 180 in 24 hours.

The increase consists of 157 hospital patients in England, 16 people in Scotland, 1 person in Northern Ireland and 6 hospital patients and care home residents in Wales.

So far, no UK-wide figures from the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) have been released, so the total is taken from each nation’s individual reporting.

It brings the working total to 36,573.

But the government tally, when it is released later today, will be significantly higher as it includes deaths in care homes (missing from the individual figures in at least England) and the community (missing from at least England and Wales). Here’s a quick primer on what all the different numbers mean and how to understand them.

Patients in England who died were aged between 12 and 100 years old, NHS England said. Seven of the 157 patients, aged between 57 and 88, had no known underlying health condition.
