One new coronavirus death has been recorded at Great Western Hospital in the last 24 hours.

The latest NHS England figures show that a patient with Covid-19 died on Tuesday, December 1.

This brings the total amount of deaths at the hospital which were related to the virus to 161.

Daily death counts are revised each day, with each case backdated to the actual date of death.

This means some of the deaths that were first recorded in the latest period may actually have taken place days earlier.

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

Only deaths that occur in hospitals where the patient has tested positive for Covid-19 are recorded, with deaths in the community excluded, such as those in care homes.
