THERE have been no new coronavirus deaths have been recorded at Wye Valley Trust in the latest official figures.

NHS England figures show 116 people had died in hospital at Wye Valley NHS Trust as of 5pm on Monday (January 11).

Across the midlands, which is the worst affected of England's seven NHS regions, there were 118 new deaths reported, with 747 new deaths reported across England.

Daily death counts are revised each day, with each case backdated to the actual date of death. 

This means some of the deaths that were first recorded in the latest period may actually have taken place days earlier.

NHS England guidance states: "Confirmation of Covid-19 diagnosis, death notification and reporting in central figures can take up to several days and the hospitals providing the data are under significant operational pressure."

Only deaths that occur in hospitals where the patient has tested positive for Covid-19 are recorded, with deaths in the community excluded, such as those in care homes.
