UK reports highest daily COVID-19 deaths - but things still not as bad as last spring

Sky, 09 Jan 2021

Deaths can occur days or weeks before they are officially announced.

The number is especially volatile at the moment since we had a number of bank holidays over the Christmas and New Year period.

Sky's Ed Conway explains the data.
