The NHS England publishes daily updated figures showing the dates of each coronavirus-related death in hospitals in England, often including previously unreported deaths that occurred several days or even weeks ago.

This is due to the time it takes for deaths to be confirmed positive for Covid-19, for post-mortem exams to be processed and for test data to be validated.

Figures released today by NHS England show that April 8th currently has the highest total for most hospital deaths in a single day – 803 – although that may change in future updates.
