The United Kingdom recorded more new COVID-19 deaths than the rest of the EU combined, new data indicates.
The figures, published and compiled by Our World in Data, show the UK announced 359 new fatalities on June 3.
The EU27, including hard-hit countries like France, Italy and Spain, disclosed 311 new deaths around the same time.
There are, however, several caveats to this.
Firstly, countries record COVID-19 deaths differently: for example, a pneumonia death in one country might be counted as coronavirus-related in one, but not the other.
