ONE further Covid-19-related hospital death has been reported over the last three days in Bradford hospitals.

According to the latest NHS figures, no further deaths were reported by Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust between November 10 and 12.

Meanwhile, Airedale NHS Foundation Trust reported one further death over the same period, which was recorded on November 9.

It means the total number of reported hospital deaths in the Bradford district now stands at 1,036 – 743 at Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, 291 at Airedale and two at Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust.

Nationally, a further 355 patients who tested positive for Covid-19 have died over the same three-day period. Their families have been informed.

The figures are updated at 2pm each day and include confirmed death cases reported at 4pm the previous day.

NHS England says: "Confirmation of Covid-19 diagnosis, death notification, death certificates and reporting in central figures can take up to several days and the hospitals providing the data are under significant operational pressure.

"This means that the totals reported at 4pm on each day may not include all deaths that occurred on that day or on recent prior days."
