THE number of people to have died due to coronavirus in Cornwall's hospitals remains unchanged today.

Saturday's NHS England figures confirmed that the total remains at 90.

The number has not risen since June 2.

However, the NHS England figures only cover deaths in hospitals and the Office for National Statistics' latest update for deaths in all settings in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, issued earlier this week, confirmed that the overall total, including hospitals, care homes and the wider community, was 203.

That figure had not risen on the previous week.

As of Friday night there had been 594 confirmed coronavirus cases in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, a figure which has not risen since last weekend.

A week before, there were 593 confirmed cases.

Across England a further 78 people who tested positive for coronavirus (Covid-19) have died, bringing the total number of confirmed reported deaths in hospitals in England to 28,635.

Patients were aged between 56 and 97 years old. Two patients, aged 73 and 96, had no known underlying health conditions, NHS England said.

Their families have been informed.

There were three new deaths registered in the south west as a whole.
