Four more coronavirus deaths have been recorded at Lancashire hospitals, according to today’s NHS figures.
All four patients died at East Lancashire Hospitals, including two on May 27 and one on both May 22 and 23.
No deaths were recorded at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals, which manages Preston and Chorley, Blackpool teaching Hospitals, University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay and Southport and Ormskirk hospitals.
It brings the Lancashire hospitals death toll to 859.
The figures which are released each day often include previously uncounted deaths that took place several days or even weeks ago.
This is because of the time it takes for deaths to be confirmed as testing positive for Covid-19, for post-mortem examinations to be processed, and for data from the tests to be validated.
NHS England said a further 185 people, who tested positive for the Coronavirus (Covid-19) have died, bringing the total number of confirmed reported deaths in hospitals in England to 26,234.
Patients were aged between 28 and 99 years old. Five of the 185 patients (aged 65 and 96) had no known underlying health condition.
