Coronavirus: daily mortality rate in the neighborhood goes up


NHS England confirmed the new deaths earlier this afternoon.

The data revealed that four other people died of the virus on Friday, bringing the total to five, with four deaths on Saturday.

Five deaths were announced yesterday.

A total of 65 people died in the neighborhood with the virus, with 9,594 deaths across England.

These numbers may increase as deaths can be added to the statistics in the days after an autopsy confirms the diagnosis.

Figures do not include deaths that may have occurred outside hospitals, such as in nursing homes.

Of the 657 deaths announced today, 42 patients had no underlying health conditions.

The patients were between 26 and 100 years old.

The latest figures, correct at 9 a.m. on Saturday morning, showed that 272 people had tested positive for the virus in Bolton.
