The time taken for positive results to be received is among the potential factors in a delay between a death happening and being recorded.

A total of five new Covid deaths have been recorded in Yorkshire, according to the latest NHS figures.

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 six such deaths in England.

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

Airedale NHS Foundation Trust: 1

Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust: 1

Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust: 1

York Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust: 2

According to Government data, a total of 10,871 patients across all hospital trusts and community settings in Yorkshire and the Humber have died within 28 days of testing positive for Covid-19 up to April 10.

This equates to 197 deaths per 100,000 people since the pandemic began.

Separate Office for National Statistics data, updated weekly, shows there have been a total of 66 deaths recorded in Yorkshire and The Humber where the death certificate mentioned Covid-19 as one of the causes.
