The UK coronavirus death toll has risen by 12 in the lowest increase for four months.
England reported 11 new deaths and Northern Ireland reported its first death since July 3.
Wales had none for the fourth straight day, and Scotland recorded no new Covid-19 deaths either.
No new coronavirus deaths have been reported in Scotland for the fifth day in a row, Nicola Sturgeon has announced.
The First Minister told the Scottish Government’s coronavirus briefing 2,490 patients have died in Scotland after testing positive for Covid-19, no change on Wednesday’s figure.
She said 18,365 people have tested positive for the virus in Scotland, up by six from 18,359 on Sunday.
This follows 19 new cases on Sunday, of which 12 were in Glasgow.
Seven of these cases were asymptomatic and relate to one care home, which Ms Sturgeon said is now being further looked into, with testing and precautions in place.
A total of 550 patients are in hospital with confirmed or suspected Covid-19, she added.
Of these six were in intensive care, no change in the past 24 hours.
The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) said 44,819 people had died in hospitals, care homes and the wider community after testing positive for coronavirus in the UK as of 5pm on Friday – up by 21 from 44,798 the previous day.
The Government figures do not include all deaths involving Covid-19 across the UK, which are thought to have passed 55,000.
The DHSC also said that in the 24-hour period up to 9am on Saturday, there had been a further 650 lab-confirmed UK cases. Overall, a total of 289.603 cases have been confirmed.
