Every Lancs hospital trust records new Covid deaths as UK toll rises by 1,176

Written by on January 13, 2021

Twenty-four more people with coronavirus have died in Lancashire with all five NHS hospital trusts recording new fatalities.

These are cases where a patient has tested positive within 28 days of their death or where Covid-19 is mentioned on their death certificate.

They do not include deaths in care homes or community settings.

It brings the region’s hospital death toll to 2,601 since the start of the pandemic.

East Lancashire Hospital Trust, which includes Blackburn, Burnley, Rossendale, Accrington, and Pendle hospitals, recorded 11 further deaths. It comes after the 31 recorded at the trust yesterday.

New data released today (January 13) by NHS England shows six people died on January 11 and one death on each of January 9, January 8, January 6, December 15 and December 10.

There can be a delay in reporting figures, meaning each death is not reported by the NHS on the following day.

Blackpool Teaching Hospitals recorded five deaths, including two on January 11 and one each on January 8, January 7 and December 21.

One death was recorded at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals pm January 10 and two patients died at Southport and Ormskirk Hospitals. One died on January 11 and one died on January 12.

University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Trust recorded five deaths, including four on January 11 and one on January 12.

A further 1,176 people have died from coronavirus in UK hospitals in a grim record increase.

There have been 1,012 deaths in England, 79 in Scotland, 66 deaths in Wales and 19 in Northern Ireland.

Last Wednesday hospital deaths across the UK were up by 831.

NHS England said: “A further 1,012 people, who tested positive for the Coronavirus (Covid-19) have died, bringing the total number of confirmed reported deaths in hospitals in England to 57,828.

“Date of death ranges from 8 May 2020 to 12 January 2021 with the majority being on or after 6 January. Their families have been informed.”

The figures for deaths in all scenarios (including care homes and in the community) will be updated at 4pm on the UK coronavirus dashboard.
