Meanwhile the ONS has also recorded a total of around 42,000 "excess deaths" - how many more people have died in total than would normally be expected - in the past five weeks.
Together with the latest equivalent numbers for Scotland (2,272 deaths registered up to April 26) and Northern Ireland (393 deaths registered up to April 29), it means a total of 32,375 deaths involving Covid-19 have now been registered across the UK.
By contrast the ONS figures include all deaths where Covid-19 is mentioned on death certificates.
The total number of Covid-19 deaths announced each day by the UK Government is not based on death registrations.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson said last Thursday that the country was "past the peak" of the Covid-19 outbreak and a "comprehensive" plan will be published later this week on "how we can continue to suppress disease" while restarting the economy.
Professor David Spiegelhalter, a leading statistician at the University of Cambridge, said one certain thing is that all the official death numbers are "substantial underestimates" of those dying directly from the virus and those who died as a result of the epidemic and the measures taken in response.
"I think we can safely say that none of these countries are doing well, but this is not Eurovision and it is pointless to try and rank them".
Apple and Google Ban Location Tracking in COVID Apps
Now, the companies have said they will ban the use of location tracking in apps that use that new contact tracing system. The two companies are designing the contact tracing ( exposure notification ) platform to preserve user privacy.
30,076 people are now reported to have died in hospitals, care homes and the wider community.
However, the United Kingdom has insisted global comparisons are fraught because of different reporting methods and criteria.
"The UK records direct and indirect causes of death plus also other contributing factors".
Britain's death toll from the coronavirus has topped 32,000, according to an updated official count released May 5, pushing the country past Italy to become the second-most impacted after the United States.
Italy's total does not include suspected cases.
It suggests Britain's true death toll from the virus may be even higher.
However, British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab urged against trying to make reliable worldwide comparisons.
