Yes, the milestone is no doubt partly a result of uneven reporting of figures over the Bank Holiday.
And no, this certainly doesn’t mean we’ve seen an end to the heartache of losing more loved ones to the virus.
There will be more hard days to come.
But you have to take your wins when you can get them, so let’s take the opportunity to thank all those who helped get us to this point.
The doctors, the nurses, the NHS support staff, the vaccine scientists, and, yes, even the politicians.

We reserve a special thank you for all those wonderful Sun readers who, like our own Jane Moore, have joined our Jabs Army to drive the death toll down.
It’s not too late to sign up, and ensure we have many more days like yesterday.
DESPITE usually having a minimal amount of talent, today’s reality TV stars have the power to influence millions of fans online.
How disgusting that some should choose to abuse that power by taking cash to peddle risky financial solutions.

It’s a relief to discover the WHO has been using months of its time so wisely by focusing on the important stuff.
The people of Kent can sleep soundly tonight.
Still, it could have been worse, if an ill-conceived idea to name the variants after Greek gods instead had taken off.
Try to stay calm after being told you’ve caught the Hades variant named after the god of death, or even one named after the Greek god of war.
Now that would be a pain in the Ares.
