DEATHS in Cornwall's hospitals due to coronavirus have remained static in Monday's update from NHS England.

Today's figures show that the total remains at 91, a figure that has not risen since July 2.

Previous to that, the total had not increased since June 2.

Last week the Office for National Statistics, which has been collating data for hospitals, care homes and the wider community, confirmed that the total number of deaths for Cornwall had risen by one on a week previous, to 205.

That figure is due to be updated tomorrow.

Across England a further 11 people who tested positive for coronavirus (Covid-19) have died, bringing the total number of confirmed reported deaths in hospitals in England to 29,077.

Patients were aged between 72 and 95 years old. All patients had known underlying health conditions, NHS England said.

Their families have been informed.

No further deaths were recorded in Monday's figures for the south west as a whole.

The number of confirmed coronavirus cases in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly continues to creep up.

On Sunday night the figure stood at 899, an increase of three on Saturday.
