NHS England has reported six deaths of people with Covid-19 in hospitals in its latest daily figures.

The numbers are usually lower on Mondays than other weekdays because of weekend reporting lags.

However, along with yesterday's eight, this is only the second time since daily reports started being published in April that the England hospital death statistic has been a single digit.

One death was recorded at each of Northamptonshire Healthcare, Rotherham, Countess of Chester Hospital and East Kent Hospitals University Foundation Trusts and two at Buckinghamshire Heathcare NHS Trust.
