Four new coronavirus deaths have been confirmed at hospitals in Yorkshire

NHS England releases updated figures each day showing the dates of every coronavirus-related death in hospitals in England, often including previously uncounted deaths that took place several days or even weeks ago.

This is because of the time it takes for deaths to be confirmed as testing positive for Covid-19, for post-mortem examinations to be processed, and for data from the tests to be validated.

The new deaths confirmed across each hospital trust in Yorkshire are as follows:

Barnsley Hospital NHS Foundation Trust - 1

Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust - 2

Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust - 1
