Coronavirus: Deaths at Surrey hospital trusts rise by 23 to 900

Published by the Eagle Radio News Team at 2:19pm 29th April 2020.

It has been confirmed that a further 23 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 900.

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 445 more people have died after contracting the virus, bringing the total to 19,746.

In a statement NHS England said:

"A further 445 people, who tested positive for the Coronavirus (Covid-19) have died, bringing the total number of confirmed reported deaths in hospitals in England to 19,746.

"Patients were aged between 14 and 101 years old.

"27 of the 445 patients (aged between 14 and 94 years old) had no known underlying health condition.

"Their families have been informed."

Figures for those having recovered from coronavirus in the UK have not been made available.

However, the Royal Surrey County Hospital has said 115 COVID-19 patients there have been discharged.

In our area Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust recorded three new virus related deaths.

six more were confirmed at Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals, while East Surrey Hospital and the Royal Surrey both saw increases of two respectively.
