The figures came shortly after it was revealed Prime Minister Boris Johnson had been discharged from hospital after his own battle with the deadly virus.
Following his release, he tweeted: “It is hard to find the words to express my debt to the NHS for saving my life.
“The efforts of millions of people across this country to stay home are worth it. Together we will overcome this challenge, as we have overcome so many challenges in the past.”
Despite being discharged, Piers urged the Prime Minister not to go back to work straight away and to recover properly, telling his to “be safe”.
