The deaths involving COVID-19 have surpassed 200,000 in the UK, official data revealed on Wednesday.

The Office for National Statistics announced that 200,247 coronavirus-related deaths were recorded up to the start of July.

The 200,000 figure was actually breached on June 25, but there was a delay in registrations.

Meanwhile, the UK is experiencing a continued increase in COVID-19 cases, driven by omicron subvariants.

The statistical office’s weekly infection survey showed COVID-19 case levels were at their highest since April.

According to the survey, 2.7 million people were estimated to have COVID-19 in the last week of June, an 18% increase versus the week before.
