A further 48 patients have died with Covid-19 in hospitals in the Anglia region but part of the daily increase is down to the late reporting of some deaths.

The NHS reported on Wednesday that 48 more people has passed away with the illness in the area, which was the highest daily figure for 12 days. The total number of patients dying in hospital in the Anglia region has reached 3,351.

On Tuesday, 28 deaths were reported in the region with 15 on Monday and 14 on Sunday.

Part of the increase can be explained by 14 deaths at the Luton & Dunstable hospital in Bedfordshire from earlier in May only just being reported. The patients died at that hospital between 4th and 10th May.

The daily NHS figures do not include those who pass away in care homes or in the community. That information is published at a local level only on a weekly basis.

When the data released by the Office of National Statistics on Tuesday is included, the regional death toll rises to more than 4,700.

Southend Hospital in Essex reported an additional eight deaths which occurred between 13th and 18th May. The total number of patients dying at Southend Hospital is now 190. Overall Essex has seen more than 1,000 hospital deaths of patients with coronavirus.

Kettering Hospital in Northamptonshire also reported a further eight deaths bringing the total there to 153.
