The number of coronavirus-related fatalities has jumped to 484 among UK Jews as of last Friday, up from 478 the previous week.

The latest figure, released on Tuesday, covers fatalities both in hospital and beyond, using data gathered from seven of the largest denominational burial boards, as collated by the Board of Deputies.

Some of the smaller communities included in the methodology are unable to report weekly data, the umbrella body said, as it urged caution when establishing week to week trends.

“We wish their families a long life, and pray that the memory of their loved ones should be for a blessing,” a spokesperson for the Board of Deputies said in a statement.

The national death toll among those tested positive for coronavirus across all settings reached 39,045 as of Sunday, health authorities said on Monday.
