Up to 150,000 Britons could die from non-coronavirus causes because of the UK’s draconian lockdown, it is feared.

A tentative estimate circulating in Whitehall suggests a six-figure death toll from a long-term lockdown, caused by a spike in suicides and domestic violence.

Official figures show around 9,000 Britons have already died after testing positive for COVID-19.

The pandemic is expected to have a huge knock-on effect on people’s mental health due to financial worries and a disruption to routine.
