Seven more deaths recorded at NHS trusts with hospitals in Surrey

Published by the Eagle Radio News Team at 5:55pm 24th May 2020.

It has been confirmed that a further seven 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 trusts with hospitals in the county now stand at 1,085.

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 147 more people have died in hospital after contracting the virus, bringing the total to 25,544.

In a statement NHS England said:

"A further 147 people, who tested positive for the Coronavirus (Covid-19) have died, bringing the total number of confirmed reported deaths in hospitals in England to 25,691.

"Patients were aged between 43 and 98 years old.  Five of the 147 patients (aged between 46 and 84) 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.

In our area Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust recorded four more deaths and East Surrey Hospital three more deaths.

There were none recorded at Ashford and St Peter's Hospitals, Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals and the Royal Surrey.
