The number of people who have died because of Covid-19 is nearly twice as high as the figure we hear announced every day.
The UK death toll from Covid-19 has surpassed 40,000 according to official figures, with nearly 10,000 care home residents now having died from coronavirus.

By 1 May, the number of coronavirus deaths announced by the UK government was just over 28,000.
Looking back at death registrations filed then, the figure is higher: just under 36,000 death certificates mentioned Covid-19.
The measure preferred by statisticians, counting all deaths above what would be expected, was even higher: more than 50,000.
Each measure answers different questions.
