THERE have been no more coronavirus related deaths in Worcestershire hospitals recorded today.

This is made up of 269 recorded at Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust and 28 at Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust.

In England a further 26 people, who tested positive for Covid-19 have died, bringing the total number of confirmed reported deaths in hospitals in England to 28,318.

The health and care NHS trust covers community hospitals and rehabilitation wards, including Worcester City Impatient Unit, Malvern Community Hospital, Evesham Community Hospital, Pershore Community Hospital, the Princess of Wales Community Hospital in Bromsgrove, Tenbury Community Hospital and the Wyre Forest Ward.

The figures on deaths relate to patients who have died in hospital and who have tested positive for Covid-19. They do not include deaths outside hospital, such as those in care homes, prisons, ambulances or in the community.

The government releases a daily figure for deaths outside of hospitals - Public Health England does not release a regional breakdown.

But using Office of National Statistics data up to June 5, added with hospital deaths since, reveals the number of Covid-19 related deaths in the county is at least 506 across all settings.
