No coronavirus deaths reported in Devon or Cornwall’s hospitals

Official figures show there have been no further deaths reported at hospitals across Devon or Cornwall in the last 24 hours.

In the UK as a whole, there were 44 hospital deaths linked to COVID-19 – the lowest rise on a Saturday since lockdown began in March.

Of that total, 39 were in England – but not one of them occurred in Devon or Cornwall.

The data was up to date as of yesterday afternoon, and is the second day running in which no fatalities in the two counties’ hospitals have been recorded.

Wales reported five fatalities and Scotland had no new deaths. Northern Ireland’s latest figures have not yet been announced.

The Government’s official toll of 44,131 deaths in all settings, including care homes, will be updated later on what has become known as Super Saturday.

Pubs, hairdressers and barbers are opening their doors for the first time since lockdown began in March, alongside restaurants, bars and cinemas
