ANOTHER 36 coronavirus deaths have been recorded at hospitals in England, the latest NHS England figues show.

Of those, two occurred in the east of England, three in London, two in the midlands, 14 in the north east and Yorkshire, 14 in the north west, and one in the south east.

The newly reported deaths bring the total number of coronavirus deaths in English hospitals to 30,507.

No new coronavirus deaths have been recorded at hospitals in Herefordshire since October 3, meaning the number of people who have died after testing positive for Covid-19 at Wye Valley NHS Trust stands at 58.

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.
