Prof. Neil Ferguson, the government's leading epidemiology adviser, said the United Kingdom public would have to remain in their homes for almost three months as the disease is contributing to rising numbers in the country. The total number of active cases is 7,880. He said Britain was not in a "fast acceleration" phase.

Hospital admissions had already stabilized at about 1,000 per day, he said.

Prince Charles, Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Health Minister Matt Hancock are among those who tested positive.

The figure was lower than Saturday's record rise of 260, which suggests that the rise in deaths could stabilise soon.

The small twinkle of positive outlook arised after Boris Johnson supplied a rallying cry for Britain to collaborate, saying thanks to everybody that was adding in a video clip from his quarantine shelter in Downing Street.

The number of new cases also pointed to a downward trend with 3,815 confirmed active cases.

Ferguson, whose modelling informed the government's decision to impose a lockdown, said the data was showing some signs that social distancing measures were beginning to work, although it has not yet had an effect on the daily reported deaths.

As the British government urged the public to stay indoors, the virus struck at Downing Street itself.

The tests would then be rolled out to the general public, but the chief medical officer, Professor Chris Whitty, said it would not be "free for everyone" and that the most needy would be given priority.

The tests could be used to conduct coronavirus antibody tests at home.

Health also reported 2,314 people have died in total in the USA from coronavirus. "We have not reached capacity".

The World Health Organisation declared the coronavirus outbreak a pandemic on 11 March.
