The number of confirmed coronavirus cases across south east London has reached 1,149.

Borough by borough, Bromley has the most coronavirus cases with 366, whilst Lewisham has recorded 346 cases.

Greenwich has 247 confirmed cases, while Bexley has 190.

So far 2,921 people in the UK who tested positive for coronavirus have died, according to the latest figures from the Department of Health and Social Care.

A total of 33,718 cases have been diagnosed as of yesterday.

Health minister Matt Hancock has said the virus is expected to peak in the UK in the next few weeks.

Speaking on BBC Radio 4's Today programme, he said there are around 35,000 front-line NHS staff who are not currently in work due to coronavirus, but added the testing figures for health staff "should" rise to thousands a day in the next few weeks.

On Thursday, the Cabinet minister pledged England would hit 100,000 tests per day by the end of the month following widespread criticism of the Government's testing strategy.

Mr Hancock said the goal can include antigen tests, which tell people whether they currently have Covid-19, as well as antibody tests to see whether people have previously had the infection.

A version of the latter has yet to be approved for use in the UK but several are undergoing rigorous testing.

Mr Hancock said the commitment to get to 250,000 tests a day - as set out by Boris Johnson - "still stands" but he had wanted to "put a very clear timeline" on the goal to get to 100,000 by the end of the month.
