NHS England and NHS Improvement publish the number of patients who have died in hospital and tested positive for Covid-19 in England.

Since April 28, NHS England and NHS Improvement also reports the number of patient deaths where there has been no Covid-19 positive test result, but where Covid-19 is documented as a direct or underlying cause of death on part 1 or part 2 of the death certification process.

This change has been introduced for deaths that occurred on April 24 and subsequently.

This means the NHS England and NHS Improvement data collection provides information on all Covid-19 related (suspected and confirmed) deaths in England hospitals.
