The NHS releases death figures every day.
They are not the number of people who have died that day, but the latest reported figures, and the deaths can have taken place several days before.
There also tends to be a spike early in the week, when reporting catches up from the weekend.
They are only deaths recorded in hospitals - not in care homes, or private homes.
However, they act as a guide to how our fight against the virus is progressing.
Figures are not released on patients who have survived.
