Coronavirus: Six-week-old baby dies with Covid-19 as NHS England announce 332 new deaths
A SIX-week-old baby is among the latest people to die with coronavirus.
NHS England announced that a further 332 people have died in hospital after testing positive for Covid-19.
A statement said: ‘Patients were aged between six weeks and 103 years old. 22 of the 332 patients (aged between 40 and 96 years old) had no known underlying health condition.’
Of the 332 new deaths announced today:
- 58 occurred on May 7
- 124 occurred on May 6
- 41 occurred on May 5
The figures also show 21 of the new deaths took place between May 1 and May 4, 72 took place in April, while the remaining 16 deaths occurred in March, with the earliest new death taking place on March 11.
NHS England releases updated figures each day showing the dates of every coronavirus-related death in hospitals in England, often including previously uncounted deaths that took place several days or even weeks ago.
This is because of the time it takes for deaths to be confirmed as testing positive for Covid-19, for post-mortem examinations to be processed and for data from the tests to be validated.
It comes as Boris Johnson is set to address the nation on Sunday evening, outlining a road map out of lockdown.
