The number of confirmed coronavirus cases across south east London has risen to 907.

Borough by borough, Bromley has the most coronavirus cases with 295, whilst Lewisham has recorded 275 cases.

Greenwich has 200 confirmed cases, while Bexley has 137.

So far 1,789 people in the UK who tested positive for coronavirus have died, according to the latest figures from the Department of Health and Social Care.

The number, which was correct as of 5pm on yesterday, is the only official statistic available for the whole of the country.

The Government is coming under increasing pressure over Covid-19 tests as healthcare leaders warned there is "no immediate prospect" of mass NHS staff testing.

Chris Hopson, the chief executive of NHS Providers, which represents NHS trusts, said maximum testing capacity in the UK was currently "very constrained" at around 13,000 tests per day.

At present, the focus is on testing patients in hospital to see if they have coronavirus, with NHS trusts told earlier in the week they should use up to 15% of any spare testing capacity for NHS staff.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock has now scrapped that cap, telling NHS hospital labs to use all spare capacity to test their frontline workers.
