All except three (aged 84 to 93 years old) had known underlying health conditions.  Date of death ranges from November 5-29 with the majority being on or after November 23.  Each day the NHS in England publishes the number of deaths recorded by each hospital trust in the last 24-hour period.  These are deaths where the person had tested positive for the virus or where COVID-19 was mentioned on their death certificate.  NHS England’s daily figures sometimes include previously uncounted deaths that took place several days – or even weeks ago.  They do not include deaths in care homes or community settings.
