No new deaths from coronavirus have been recorded at Wye Valley Trust since June 5, the latest figures show.

NHS England figures released at 2pm every day show 53 people had died in hospital at Wye Valley NHS Trust as of 5pm on Monday (June 15).

The most recent deaths occurred on June 5, when two patients died.

The victims were among 5,554 deaths recorded across the midlands, compared with 5,538 the previous day.


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 last 24 hours 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.

Across England, the death toll hit 28,060 on Monday, up from 27,981.
