The number of coronavirus deaths passed 300 at Great Western Hospital in the last 24 hours, the latest figures show.

NHS England figures show 301 people had died at GWH as of 4pm on Monday, February 22.

That was an increase of two compared to Monday, when there were 299.

Daily death counts are revised each day, with each case backdated to the actual date of death.

This means some of the deaths that were first recorded in the latest period may actually have taken place days earlier.

Only deaths that occur in hospitals where the patient has tested positive for Covid-19 are recorded, with deaths in the community excluded, such as those in care homes.
