United Kingdom confirms rise of COVID-19 cases to 798

The number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Britain reached 1,140 as of Saturday morning, an increase of more than 300 over the last 24 hours, according to the latest figures released by the British Department of Health and Social Care. The medical report also confirms the death of 10 people, all of whom were elderly and had underlying diseases before contracting the disease. Johnson warned that many British families will lose loved ones in the coming weeks as a result of COVID-19, but said authorities are doing everything possible to address the epidemic. The government is due to plough ahead with emergency legislation next week likely to include compensation for organisations forced to cancel events as well as powers to temporarily detain sufferers if needed.
