UK slashes official virus death toll by more than 5,000

The British govt changed the way it compiles Covid-19 deaths, a move that reduced the official death toll by more than 5000. The DOH said the new total is 41,329, down from 46,706 which is still EU’s highest death toll. This was because academics pointed out that in UK the data included anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 and later died, with no cut-off point between positive test & death.
