MOST regions in England have recently gone at least a day without a single Covid death – for the first time in six months.

Five out of nine regions were free of fatalities for a minimum of 24 hours over the past week, while London averaged 1.5 deaths every day over seven days.

Official figures show there were no virus deaths in the South East, West Midlands, Yorkshire and the Humber or the East of England on Wednesday.

The South West has reported no daily deaths three times in the past week.

Meanwhile, Monday marks the next milestone in the government’s road to freedom out of lockdown.

The ‘stay at home’ message will be ditched as new rules come into force in England.

Under the current rules, many Brits have been fined for not having a reasonable excuse for heading outside.

But Boris Johnson’s roadmap out of lockdown has now started to unfold, with the next phase to take place from March 29.
