Another 828 coronavirus patients have died in hospital in England, taking the total to 6,483.
The latest figures, released by NHS England, count newly-confirmed deaths of hospital patients who have COVID-19, reported up until 5pm on Tuesday.
Patients were aged between 22 and 103, and 46 (aged 35 to 96) had no known underlying health condition.
The highest number of coronavirus fatalities came in London, with 201, followed by the Midlands with 171.
Also reporting three figures were the North West with 128 the South East with 120, and the North East with 101.

There were 70 deaths recorded in the East of England and 37 in the South West.
It is the largest overall increase reported by NHS England so far.
The other home nations have also reported increases in deaths:
70 in Scotland – a rise to 366
33 in Wales – total is 245
Five in Northern Ireland – total is 78
Those figures combined with NHS England’s total takes the nationwide daily rise to 936.
But the different home nations collate their figures at different times throughout the day, so there are sometimes discrepancies between the UK government’s total when adding up the individual numbers.
The Department of Health is expected to publish its total update for the UK this afternoon.

Seven residents of an east London care home have died with coronavirus.
Another 21 residents are displaying Covid-19 symptoms at the Hawthorn Green home in Stepney – which houses 48 people.
A dozen staff members are also off work, either self-isolating or shielding, the care home said.
The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) said it was “working around the clock to give the social care sector the support it needed”.
A care home spokesman said: “Regrettably, seven residents have died who had symptoms consistent with Covid-19.
“Twenty-one residents are showing at least one symptom consistent with the virus.”
Jamshad Ali, an 87-year-old retired tailor who moved to London from Bangladesh in 1962, is one of those who died.
Mr Ali, who had worked for Burberry, died in the Royal London Hospital on 24 March after contracting Covid-19, a week after being discharged from hospital for a chest infection.
His daughter Luthfa Hood told the Local Democracy Reporting Service: “If we had known the virus was so prevalent in Hawthorn Green we would not have sent him back there after he had been in hospital.
“We knew that if he got it, that would be him done.
“We cannot praise the NHS enough for what they did. But there needs to be more testing, especially in places like care homes where the most vulnerable live.”
‘Serious risk’
Labour MP for Barking and Dagenham Dame Margaret Hodge has written to the government about the shortage of PPE and staff at the care homes in her constituency.
“Care home staff said they were forced to wash or reuse disposable aprons and face masks. Some care homes had run out of gloves and face masks entirely”, she said,
“I was shocked to hear that one care home had been forced to borrow protective eye equipment from a local secondary school.
“This situation is completely unacceptable and puts the health of care home staff and residents at serious risk.”
A DHSC spokesman said: “We are providing personal protective equipment to over 26,000 care home providers across the country.”

Boris Johnson is “responding to treatment” for coronavirus as he spends his third day in hospital.
The prime minister was being kept in St Thomas’ Hospital in London “for close monitoring” and remained clinically stable, Downing Street said.
Downing Street said he was not working but could contact those he needed to.
No 10 said a review of lockdown rules would go ahead as planned next week, but the public must “stick with” the measures at what was a “critical time”.
A ban on public gatherings of more than two people and the closure of shops selling non-essential goods were among the series of restrictions announced by Mr Johnson on 23 March to tackle the spread of coronavirus.
Downing Street said a relaxation of the rules would be considered “on or around” the three-week mark on Monday, as was promised by the PM when he introduced the measures.
But health minister Edward Argar said the peak in cases must pass “before we can think about making changes”, adding: “It’s too early to say when we will reach that peak.”
The lockdown in Wales will be extended and not lifted next week, First Minister Mark Drakeford has confirmed.
He said there were signs people staying at home was “having an impact” but “the efforts we are making are not over yet”.
The prime minister was admitted to St Thomas’ on Sunday, on the advice of his doctor, after continuing to display symptoms of a cough and high temperature 10 days after testing positive for the virus.
Downing Street said Mr Johnson was in “good spirits” as he continued to receive standard oxygen treatment. He was breathing without any assistance, such as mechanical ventilation or non-invasive respiratory support.
The Queen and other senior royals sent messages to Mr Johnson’s family and his pregnant fiancee, Carrie Symonds, saying they were thinking of them, and wished the PM a full and speedy recovery.
Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, who is deputising for Mr Johnson, said on Tuesday he was “confident” the PM would recover from this illness, describing him as a “fighter”.
Ahead of a spell of sunny weather forecast in some parts of the UK later this week, Mr Argar urged people to stay at home “however lovely the weather this Easter weekend”.
“If we are, as the statistics appear to show, making a little bit of progress, now’s the time to hold to it,” he told BBC Breakfast.
Regarding a review of lockdown measures, he said: “We need to start seeing the numbers coming down and that’s when you’re in the negative.
“That’s when you have a sense when that’s sustained over a period of time, that you can see it coming out of that. We’re not there yet and I don’t exactly know when we will be.”
According to the government’s coronavirus legislation, the health secretary must review the need for restrictions at least once every 21 days, with the first review to be carried out by 16 April.
Mayor of London Sadiq Khan told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “I think we’re nowhere near lifting the lockdown.
“We think the peak – which is the worst part of the virus – is still probably a week and a half away.”
At Tuesday’s coronavirus briefing in Downing Street, Mr Raab was asked about whether his role deputising for Mr Johnson gave him full prime ministerial responsibility.
The foreign secretary said he was standing in for the prime minister “whenever necessary” – including leading the daily meetings of the coronavirus “war cabinet”.
Mr Raab said decisions would be made by “collective cabinet responsibility – so that is the same as before”.
“But we’ve got very clear directions, very clear instructions from the prime minister, and we’re focused with total unity and total resolve on implementing them so that when he’s back, I hope in very short order, we will have made the progress that he would expect and that the country would expect,” Mr Raab added.
Meanwhile, the first patients have been admitted to the NHS Nightingale Hospital in east London – a temporary facility set up at the ExCel conference centre.
The admissions come two weeks after the hospital with a planned capacity of 4,000 was formally announced – although an NHS spokesperson stressed limits had not been reached at other sites in London.
The second NHS Nightingale Hospital, at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham, is to be opened on Friday, Downing Street said. It will have capacity for up to 2,000 patients if needed.
The prime minister’s official spokesman added a third Nightingale Hospital was expected to open in “the next week or so” in Manchester.
It came as the number of coronavirus hospital deaths in the UK rose to 6,159 on Tuesday – a record increase of 786 in a day, the Department of Health and Social Care said, compared with 439 on Monday.
However, the government’s chief scientific adviser told the Downing Street briefing the number of coronavirus cases in the UK “could be moving in the right direction”.
Sir Patrick Vallance said it was “possible that we’re beginning to see… the curve flattening”.
As of 09:00 BST on Tuesday, 213,181 people have been tested, of which 55,242 tested positive, the Department of Health and Social Care said.
Overall, 266,694 tests have been concluded, with 14,006 tests carried out on Monday.
According to new official figures, 354 people in Scotland suspected or confirmed to have had the virus died between 16 March and 5 April.
The new total put out by the Scottish government is far higher than the death toll for patients who have tested positive for the virus, which was 74 as of Tuesday.
The figure is higher because it includes deaths where the virus was a probable contributing factor – and people who were not in hospital when they died.
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said the total death toll in Scotland was 366.
In other developments:
Friends and family have been paying tribute to Rebecca Mack, a former children’s cancer nurse at the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle, who died on Sunday after contracting the virus a few weeks ago
In London 14 public transport staff have died from the virus, including nine bus workers. The mayor said some buses were trialling allowing passengers to get on the bus only through the back doors to avoid going near the driver
Supermarket Tesco said most food would still need to be bought in store as it was not able to meet home delivery demand, while Sainsbury’s said it was removing restrictions on thousands of products as stock levels recover
A doctor who specialised in treating the elderly has died at a London hospital after testing positive for Covid-19
The months-long lockdown in the city of Wuhan in China’s Hubei province – where the coronavirus pandemic started – has been lifted

Pet cats in coronavirus-infected or self-isolating households should be kept inside

Cats from coronavirus-infected households, or those with owners self-isolating, should be kept indoors as a precaution, said the British veterinary association.
But cats should not be forced to stay inside if it causes them stress, it added.

There have been a “tiny” number of Covid-19 cases in animals but it appears the transmission was human to animal, said the association in a statement.“There is no evidence that pets can pass Covid-19 to their owners,” it added.

So far, dogs have not shown any symptoms but cats have displayed “clinical signs of the disease.”

The association warns that the virus can sit on pet fur in the same way as on other surfaces. Handwashing is the best line of defense, it advises.

“As a precaution, for pet owners who have Covid-19,or who are self-isolating, we are recommending that you keep your cat inside during that time, if possible,” it said.

Cannes and Venice film festivals rule out going virtual

Fresh doubts were hanging over the coronavirus-hit Cannes film festival Wednesday after its director said holding it online would go against its “soul”.
The world’s biggest film festival has already been postponed until the end of June because of the virus.

Thierry Fremaux said it would tear the heart out of the festival to go virtual, after the world’s biggest animation festival at Annecy, also in France, said on Tuesday that it was looking at going online on June 15.Cannes main rival, the Venice film festival, which happens in September, also said it was strongly against such a move to get around restrictions imposed by the pandemic.

“Films by Wes Anderson or Paul Verhoeven on a computer?” Fremaux said, hinting that the festival was to premiere Anderson’s starry comedy “French Dispatch” as well as Verhoeven’s “Benedetta”, about the erotic visions of a 17th-century nun.

It was impossible to think of “discovering ‘Top Gun 2’ or (Pixar’s) ‘Soul’ elsewhere than in a cinema,” he told Variety.

Following smaller virus-hit US festivals like Tribeca and South by Southwest by moving online would not work for Cannes, Fremaux insisted.

“It’s a model that wouldn’t work… for Cannes — its soul, its history, its efficiency,” he said.

“What is a digital festival? We should start by asking rights holders if they agree.”Fremaux said many films like “French Dispatch” have already delayed their release so they can “be shown on a big screen” after the epidemic.

– ‘Premieres on an iPhone?’

“Why would we want to show them before on a digital device?” he said.

He compared the magic of Cannes to the Wimbledon tennis tournament in London, which he said could not be played behind closed doors.

“A festival like Cannes is all about having artists, producers, distributors and critics all in the same room,” he told Le Monde newspaper.

“It wouldn’t make sense” to do it any other way, he added.

Fremaux said directors and producers would not want a digital version of the festival “where their works might end up on an iPhone”.

The Venice film festival is also strongly against going online.

While Italy has been hit hard by the pandemic, it is gambling on restrictions on public gatherings being eased in time for its September start.

Its director Alberto Barbera said that while the Toronto film festival, which overlaps with Venice, was considering going online, “it cannot be compared to Venice or Cannes. It is a different sort of festival.”

“The most pessimistic scenario is that the pandemic will continue, which would oblige us to take a sabbatical for a year,” he told the Italian news agency ANSA.

But it could also pass or “there could be an in-between situation where the festival goes ahead but with restrictions”.

There there were many reasons to be optimistic, Barbara argued.

“History teaches us that after tragic periods come global cataclysm where lots of unexpected energies can develop.”

Virus prevents play at Trump-opened world's biggest cricket stadium

There is no larger symbol of the global sports shutdown than cricket’s 110,000-seater Sardar Patel Stadium in Ahmedabad, opened by US President Donald Trump, but yet to see a ball bowled.
India’s newest and the world’s biggest cricket stadium lies empty because of the coronavirus pandemic. Where there should be the sound of leather on willow and the roar of the crowd, there is only silence.

Just a few weeks ago, it had been packed to capacity as Trump and India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi stood side-by-side in a show of pomp and ceremony for the February 24 inauguration.Eclipsing Australia’s 100,000-capacity Melbourne Cricket Ground, it was rumoured to be in line to host the final of this year’s Indian Premier League, the world’s richest Twenty20 tournament, watched by millions worldwide.

But then came COVID-19. The pandemic has brought the sporting world to a grinding halt with massive events including the Tokyo Olympics, football’s European Championships, golf and tennis majors, and the glitzy IPL postponed.

“There was hardly any time between the Trump event and the pandemic,” a senior Gujarat Cricket Association official told AFP on condition of anonymity, adding that once cricket resumes, the stadium could be ready “in double-quick time.”

“Just five percent work is remaining and it just needs the finishing touches,” the official added.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has pushed back the IPL from its original start date of March 29 to April 15, but with the number of coronavirus cases in India exceeding 5,000 and still rising, pressure is growing for it to be shifted again, truncated or scrapped.

– Unobstructed views -The $100-million, circular venue, promises unobstructed views and has state-of-the-art facilities including an Olympic-sized swimming pool as part of a multisports complex.

Next door, a refurbished venue on the site of the former 49,000-capacity Motera Stadium will serve as a venue for cricket, football and hockey.

Critics have charged that it is another “white elephant” vanity project in Modi’s home state, following the completion of the world’s largest statue there in 2018 – also dedicated to independence hero Sardar Patel.

The giant Statue of Unity measures 182 metres tall (597 feet) — twice the height of New York’s Statue of Liberty.

Modi was Gujarat chief minister for 13 years until 2014, and revamping the former Motera stadium had been long a pet project.

Home Minister Amit Shah, a close ally, headed the Gujarat Cricket Association till last year and his son Jay Shah is the secretary of the BCCI, the world’s richest and most powerful cricket board.

Despite cricket being wildly popular in India, domestic first class matches — and even some international Test matches — are often played to near-empty stadiums.

The only matches guaranteed to attract big crowds are IPL games and one-day internationals — and even then it depends on the quality of the opposition.

The nation of 1.3 billion people already has more than a dozen stadiums capable of hosting international cricket, although in the off-season they can be used for other events.

“You are left wondering whether it is a rock concert venue, (or) is it a cricket stadium?” ESPNcricinfo senior editor Sharda Ugra told AFP.

“I would have hoped that there would have been some analysis on the kind of grounds that India needs now.

“We have a lot of these giant grounds in which you have one international match in two years.”

Russia ready to start testing coronavirus vaccines on humans in June

The head of a top Russian research centre told President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday that his lab was ready to start human trials of experimental coronavirus vaccines in June.
Rinat Maksyutov, head of the Vektor State Virology and Biotechnology Centre, said his facility proposed first-phase clinical trials of three vaccines from June 29, on 180 volunteers.

Maksyutov was speaking during a video-link meeting between Putin and the heads of top research centres.“Groups of volunteers have already been formed,” he told Putin, adding that a lot of people wanted to take part in the trials.

“We have already received more than 300 applications.” Maksyutov said scientists at the top-secret lab complex located in Koltsovo outside the Siberian city of Novosibirsk had developed several prototype vaccines.

Tests were currently underway on mice, rabbits and other animals to determine the most promising by April 30, he said.

Vektor planned pre-clinical studies by June 22 before launching the testing in humans, Maksyutov added.

But the first human trials could begin in May “if the health ministry allows it”.

Vektor has vaccine platform technologies that have already been tested in humans for other infections and could be used for the coronavirus, he added.The Vektor laboratory complex conducted secret biological weapons research in the Soviet era and stockpiles viruses ranging from Ebola to smallpox.

Russia on Tuesday reported 7,497 coronavirus cases and 58 fatalities but the real number of infections is believed to be much higher.
