LONDON: Britain on Tuesday reported zero daily deaths from Covid-19 for the first time since July 30, 2020, according to government data, despite fears over a possible third wave of cases.

According to latest official figures, 127,782 people have died within 28 days of a positive test since the start of the pandemic, which is the worst death toll of any European country. The UK has seen a total of 4.49mn cases.

In another developmen­t, London’s Heathrow airport has reopened a terminal that was mothballed during the pandemic to handle passengers now arriving from high-risk countries.

Britain has barred travellers from a “red list” of 43 hot spots including India, Brazil and Turkey. UK nationals and residents returning from those countries face a mandatory 10-day quarantine in a hotel.
