LONDON, May 24 (Xinhua) -- Another 118 COVID-19 patients have died in Britain as of Saturday afternoon, bringing the total coronavirus-related death toll in the country to 36,793, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Sunday.

The figures include deaths in all settings, including hospitals, care homes and the wider community.

Chairing Sunday's Downing Street daily press briefing, Johnson confirmed that primary schools in England will reopen from June 1, with secondary schools providing "some contact" for year 10 and year 12 students to help them to prepare for exams next year from June 15.

"By opening schools to more pupils in this limited way we are taking a deliberate cautious step," he told reporters.
