Tests are up, new cases and deaths are down. It would appear the UK's numbers were decreasing, but don't get complacent though as I saw this happen with one of the other European countries right before the numbers skyrocketed. Might have been France or Spain.

Total confirmed cases are at 51,608, with 3802 new cases, down 2101 (43.3% decrease) on yesterday. Total deaths are 5,373, with 439 new deaths, down 182 (34.3% decrease) on yesterday. Total tested this (24h) period, 13313.

As of 9am 6 April, 252,958 tests have concluded, with 13,069 tests carried out on 5 April (this does not include data for Northern Ireland). Some individuals are tested more than once for clinical reasons.
208,837 people have been tested, of whom 51,608 tested positive.
As of 5pm on 5 April, of those hospitalised in the UK who tested positive for coronavirus, 5,373 have died.

US blocks millions of N95 face masks headed for Canada

US officials have stopped nearly three million specialized masks from being exported to Canada’s most populous province, amid mounting fears that Ontario will run out of supplies for medical staff battling coronavirus by the end of the week.
