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

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

The latest figures came in the midst of a dispute over Dominic Cummings ‘containment journey from his home in London to his parents’ home in Durham, which was revealed by a joint investigation by the Mirror and the Guardian.

Durham police said officers contacted property owners on March 31 – more than a week after the foreclosure was imposed by the Prime Minister and a few days after Mr. Cummings had developed symptoms of coronavirus – after being informed that a person had traveled from London to the north city.

The person was “present and self-isolated” in part of the house, and the police explained self-isolation and essential rules of travel “to the family”.

Chief aide Cummings says he “behaved reasonably and lawfully” when he traveled over 250 miles when his boss, Boris Johnson, urged the British to stay home to save Lives.

When a reporter suggested to him outside his London home that the trip to Durham didn’t look good, he replied, “Who cares about beauty?

“It’s a matter of doing the right thing. It’s not what you think. “

Mr. Johnson was pressured to fire his best adviser, but Downing Street supported Mr. Cummings and appeared to accuse the police of lying.

A No10 spokesperson said, “Due to his wife’s suspected coronavirus infection and the high likelihood that he will not feel well, it was essential that Dominic Cummings ensure that his young child is properly cared for.

“His sister and nieces had volunteered to help him, so he went to a house near but separated from his extended family in case their help was needed.

“Her sister shopped for the family and left everything outside.

“At no time did he or his family speak to the police about this, as reported.

“His actions were in accordance with the guidelines on coronaviruses. Mr. Cummings believes he behaved reasonably and lawfully. “

Durham police and the commissioner of crime, Steve White, said the police “acted appropriately” in relation to Mr. Cummings’ visit to the county.
