NO new coronavirus-related deaths have been recorded at the borough's NHS Trust in the latest figures.

The death toll in relation to COVID-19 at the Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh NHS Trust remains at 248.

Across England, a further 62 people who tested positive for the COVID-19 have died, including a healthy 13-day-old baby, who is the UK’s youngest coronavirus victim.

The oldest person to die was 96.

Three patients, aged between 13 days and 83, had no known underlying health conditions.

In addition, 13 people died where COVID-19 was mentioned on their death certificate but where there was no positive test result.

NHS England also confirmed that 25 records have been removed from the official records after they had been reported twice in error.

That brings the total number of confirmed reported deaths in hospitals in England to 28,175.

The hospital figures are updated by NHS England and NHS Improvement every day and include confirmed death cases reported at 5pm the previous day.

Cases are only included in the data when a positive COVID-19 test result is received, or where COVID-19 is documented as a direct or underlying cause of death on the death certificate.

This results in a lag between a given date of death and the daily death figures for that day, meaning reported deaths may have occurred several days prior to them being reported.

NHS England and NHS Improvement do not publish recovery figures.
