The data is published by NHS England and contains information on the deaths of patients who have died in hospitals in England and either tested positive for Covid-19 or where no positive test result was received for Covid-19, but Covid-19 was mentioned on their death certificate.

All deaths are recorded against the date of death rather than the day the deaths were announced.
