Figures released by NHS England show 48 deaths were recorded in the country's hospitals in the 24 hours to 4pm on Sunday, March 21, including four 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 four such deaths in England.
Deaths were recorded at the following hospital trusts in Yorkshire and the Humber:
Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust: 3
Airedale NHS Foundation Trust: 1
The current Covid death toll in Yorkshire hospitals is 8,677.
