'Hard to compute the sorrow': Johnson as UK passes 100,000 dead
The UK has the fifth highest toll in the world, reporting an additional 1,631 deaths and 20,089 cases on Tuesday, according to government figures.
The 100,000 mark is more than the country's civilian tax in World War II.
PM BORIS JOHNSON: Hello. I am sorry to announce that the number of deaths recorded from COVID in the UK exceeded 100,000 today. And it's hard to calculate the grief that is contained in this dismal statistic. The lost years of life, the family reunion are not attended and - for so many relatives - the missed chance to say goodbye at all. I would like to express my deepest condolences to everyone who has lost a loved one. Fathers and mothers, brothers and sisters, sons and daughters, and the many grandparents who were taken.
