There were also four more deaths at NGH. One was recorded on Friday, another on Saturday and two on Sunday.

No deaths were reported from KGH yesterday, but Monday announcements tend to be lower than the rest of the week due to a delay in recording. Deaths are only included with a positive test result or where Covid-19 is mentioned on a death certificate and both these confirmations take longer over the weekend.

More than 30,000 people in the UK have now died from Covid-19, making it the highest death toll in Europe.

On Friday, the ONS released the most detailed picture yet of the impact coronavirus has had on the county. The data showed how many people from each area have died from Covid-19.

East Northants has been one of the worst-hit areas in the county with 38 deaths. The data also showed the impact of the virus in Kettering, Corby and Wellingborough.
