The number of people to have died with coronavirus in the UK has risen by 21.
The Government said 46,526 people had died in hospitals, care homes and the wider community after testing positive for coronavirus as of 5pm on Sunday.
Separate figures published by the UK’s statistics agencies show there have now been 56,600 deaths registered in the UK where Covid-19 was mentioned on the death certificate.
The Government also said that in the 24-hour period up to 9am on Monday, there had been a further 816 lab-confirmed cases. Overall, a total of 311,641 cases have been confirmed.
It comes after a further seven people were confirmed to have died in UK hospitals after testing positive for coronavirus.
Six of those people were in England, with one in Northern Ireland. There were no further deaths in Wales or Scotland.
The latest figures bring the total number of deaths recorded in UK hospitals to 34,044.
The patients who died in English hospitals were aged between 65 and 93. All had known underlying health conditions. No deaths were reported with no positive Covid-19 test result.
The region with the highest number of deaths was the South East with four.
There were also two deaths in the North East and Yorkshire but all other regions of England recorded no deaths for the same time period, including the North West, where local lockdown measures are in place around Greater Manchester.
The total of seven new deaths is higher than last Monday, when five people were reported to have died in hospitals after testing positive for the virus.
It comes after Boris Johnson urged schools and teachers' unions to work together "to ensure that our schools are safe" from coronavirus in time for the start of the next academic year.
The Prime Minister told reporters: “It’s not right that kids should spend more time out of school. It’s much much better for their health and mental wellbeing - obviously their educational prospects if everybody comes back to school full-time in September.
"It's our moral duty to make sure that happens."
