Figures released by NHS England show 771 deaths were recorded in the country's hospitals in the 24 hours to 4pm on Friday, January 15.
The deaths took place between November 18 2020 and January 14 2021, with the time taken for positive results to be received among the potential factors in a delay between a death happening and being recorded.
The data represents the deaths of hospital patients who had tested positive for Covid-19 in the previous 28 days and whose deaths were recorded in the latest reporting period.
Since April 28 2020, NHS England and NHS Improvement also started to report the number of patient deaths where there has been no Covid-19 positive test result but it is documented as a direct or underlying cause of death in the death certification process.

Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust 3
