Another 38 people with coronavirus have died in hospitals in England, NHS England confirmed today.

The total number of confirmed deaths in hospitals in England is 29,051.

A new coronavirus-related death was confirmed today by Public Health Wales, bringing the total number of hospital deaths to 1,541 in the country.

According to the National Statistics Office, 92 people have died of the virus in Powys so far.

The latest government-released death toll in the UK, which includes deaths in and outside of hospitals, will be released later. As of Friday, it was 44,650.

In the meantime, scientists have cautiously welcomed Boris Johnson's suggestion that facial covering may become mandatory in shops in England.

The Prime Minister said on Friday that he would "more strictly" insist that people wear blankets in confined spaces where they meet people they normally don't see.

Face coverings are currently mandatory in public transport and in hospitals in England, but are mandatory in shops in Scotland.

The British government insisted early on in the pandemic that masks were not required for the general public on the go.

However, during a Friday afternoon online question and answer session, the Prime Minister signaled a change in policy.
