Coronavirus:  Two more deaths at Surrey hospital trusts bringing total to 1,137

Published by the Eagle Radio News Team at 5:18pm 6th June 2020. (Updated at 5:19pm 6th June 2020)

It has been confirmed that two more 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 1,137.

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 75 more people have died in hospital after contracting the virus, bringing the total to 27,359.

In a statement NHS England said:

"A further 75 people, who tested positive for the Coronavirus (Covid-19) have died, bringing the total number of confirmed reported deaths in hospitals in England to 27,359.

"Patients were aged between 43 and 100 years old and all had known underlying health conditions. 

"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 two new virus-related deaths.
