Three new coronavirus deaths at Gloucestershire hospitals

Three new coronavirus deaths have been recorded at Gloucestershire Hospitals Trust over the weekend, the latest official figures show.

NHS England figures show 212 people had died in hospital at Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust as of 5pm on Sunday.

That was an increase of three compared to Friday, when there were 209.

It means there have been eight deaths in the past week, up from three the previous week.

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.
