Coronavirus UK news LIVE: New virus strikes China as fears France ‘next to join Spain on quarantine list’

CHINA has been hit by another virus thought to be passed via tick bites leaving seven dead and at least 60 infected. 

France have seen a spike in Covid infections raising the alarm about an impending second wave, its health ministry said: “The situation is precarious. We could at any moment tip into a scenario that is less under control, like in Spain.”

Meanwhile, thousands of coronavirus deaths are set to be cut from official records over flaws in how they are counted.

An urgent review into errors found that anyone who dies after testing positive is included in official Covid-related death stats – even if their death happens months later.

The figures are now expected to be brought in line with Scotland and Northern Ireland, where deaths are only counted towards official records if they occur 28 days after a person tests positive.
