One of the countries where the Coronavirus epidemic was effective in Europe, the number of people who lost their lives in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland exceeded 47 thousand.
According to the data announced by the National Institute of Statistics, 42 thousand 173 people died in England and Wales due to the Corona virus epidemic, and the total number reached 47 thousand 343 when those who died in Scotland and Northern Ireland were added.
Officials point out that, with the latest casualties, Britain is one of the countries with the most casualties worldwide.
Britain was late in taking action by deciding to implement herd immunity in the initial phase of the outbreak, but later had to step back from this decision.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who has been the target of criticism since the first day due to this decision, also got infected and was discharged after being treated in the hospital.
