Nationally, a further 587 people, who tested positive for the Coronavirus (Covid-19) have died, bringing the total number of confirmed reported deaths in hospitals in England to 17,373.
NHS England releases updated figures each day showing the dates of every coronavirus-related death in hospitals in England, often including previously uncounted deaths that took place several days or even weeks ago. This is because of the time it takes for deaths to be confirmed as testing positive for Covid-19, for post-mortem examinations to be processed and for data from the tests to be validated.
Of the newly announced deaths, patients were aged between 40 and 102 years old, of which 34, aged between 50 and 102 years old, had no known underlying health condition.
The Department of Health will announce the latest figures for positive cases and deaths in the UK in due course.
