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 11 such deaths in England.

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

Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust: 1

Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust: 1
