The combined number of Covid-19 deaths in total in Cornwall's hospitals since the start of the pandemic is 259.

The overall number of deaths in Cornwall – including deaths in care homes and other settings – has risen to 461 in the 28 days after a positive test, including one in today's figures.

The number of deaths simply with Covid-19 on the death certificate is now at 526, with 24 extra registered in the week leading up to February 26, the most recent date given. This figure is updated weekly on a Tuesday.

Nationally a further 118 people who tested positive for the Coronavirus (Covid-19) have died, bringing the total number of confirmed reported deaths in hospitals in England to 85,185.

Patients were aged between 37 and 99 years old. All except eight – aged 37 to 99 years old – had known underlying health conditions and their families have been informed.

The date of the deaths ranged from December 17, 2020 to March 12, 2021, with the majority being on or after March 6.

Of those, seven were in the South West.

The overall UK figures show 121 more people to have died within 28 days of their first positive test result.

This takes the total number of UK deaths within 28 days to 125,464. These figures include people in care home and other settings.

A note on the Government dashboard states: "Daily counts of deaths in England rely on multiple data sources. On March 13, 2021 there was a delay in receiving this information from one of these sources. This might have a small impact on the total number of deaths reported on that date. This delay will be reflected on the numbers published on March 14, 2021."

As of 4pm today (Saturday, March 13) there have been 12 new cases of Covid-19 recorded in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly in the previous 24 hours.

The total number of cases in the local authority area since the start of the pandemic is now 13,804.

It is third second date in a row that cases are back in the teens, but due to a delay in the reporting of figures it has yet to show in the weekly totals, with data from the most recent five days not shown due to being incomplete.

As such, the latest weekly total remains at 68 cases in the seven days leading to March 8.

It means the weekly rate also stays the same as yesterday, at 11.9 cases per 100,000 people.

The number of people testing positive for coronavirus in the UK has increased by 5,534 in 24 hours – a drop on the past two days where the figured had risen back up above 6,000.

This takes the total to 4,253,820 nationally since the start of the pandemic.

As of today (Saturday, March 13) 23,684,103 people in the UK have had received their first Covid-19 vaccination dose, while 1,532,754 people have had their second dose.
