Figures released by NHS England show two deaths were recorded in the country's hospitals in the 24 hours to 4pm on Saturday, May 8.
The deaths were recorded on May 6 and May 7.
The time taken for positive results to be received is among the potential factors in a delay between a death happening and being recorded.
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.
The figures for the latest reporting period show one death of this type in England.
