Some 8859 deaths with covid on the death certificate have been recorded across Yorkshire and the Humber since the start of the pandemic.

Figures released by NHS England show 25 deaths were recorded as having taken place in the 24 hours to 4pm on Tuesday, May 4, including six in Yorkshire and the Humber.

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 there were nine such deaths in England.

Deaths were recorded at the following hospital trusts in Yorkshire and the Humber:

Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust: 1

Hull University Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust : 1

Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust: 1

Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust: 2

The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust: 1
