Coronavirus: Deaths at Surrey hospital trusts reach nearly 400

Published by the Eagle Radio News Team at 2:29pm 9th April 2020. (Updated at 3:10pm 9th April 2020)

It has been confirmed that a further 39 patients being treated at NHS trusts with hospitals in Surrey have died after testing positive for COVID-19.

Confirmed deaths relating to coronavirus at the five trusts with hospitals in the county now stand at 391.

It is not clear exactly how many of those deaths have been in Surrey, as some of the trusts also have other sites based outside of the county. NHS England only publishes figures for deaths by hospital trust.

Across England 765 more people have died after contracting the virus, bringing the total to 7,248.

In a statement NHS England said:

"A further 765 people, who tested positive for the Coronavirus (Covid-19) have died, bringing the total number of confirmed reported deaths in hospitals in England to 7,248.

"Patients were aged between 24 and 103 years old.

"43 of the 765 patients (aged between 33 and 99 years old) had no known underlying health condition.  

"Their families have been informed."
