LBC is analysing the latest Covid data as it happens throughout the pandemic.

We’re looking at the total number of cases each week across the UK, how they compare to the previous week and who has been affected.

The latest data shows the number of cases is steadily falling, while the number of people receiving the vaccine climbs.

More than 100,000 people have now died with Covid-19 in the UK, with the Prime Minister saying it is "hard to compute the sorrow contained in that grim statistic".

More than 20.2 million coronavirus vaccinations had taken place across the country as of March 1, with hopes all adults will be offered a first dose by July.

LBC will bring you a daily breakdown of the number of deaths due to coronavirus, both across the UK and in England.

LBC's data will also compare the UK's weekly Covid-19 deaths with the five-year flu and pneumonia death average.

Our graphs give you the facts, day-by-day, as the coronavirus crisis continues.
