Starmer: UK on track for worst European Covid-19 death rate

Labour Party Leader Sir Keir Starmer has challenged the Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, deputising for Prime Minister Boris Johnson, on the death toll in the UK coronavirus outbreak today, claiming the UK is "on track to have one of the worst death rates in Europe". In response, Mr Raab insisted upon the unprecedented scale of the pandemic and claimed it was "too early to make international comparisons" at this stage.
