Written by Newsteam on April 20, 2020
Northampton General Hospital has now reached over 100 deaths from the coronavirus pandemic according to data collected on Friday evening.
Figures released by NHS England saw nine deaths since Wednesday at the hospital, raising the total in Northampton General to 102. Five deaths were also recorded at Kettering General Hospital. The countywide total currently stands at 166 with the nationwide total at 16060.
Each day, there is an announcement on the number of deaths from coronavirus in hospitals. Despite this, it does not reflect the number of people that have died that day or within the past 24 hours, due to difficulties in confirming that the death was specifically from coronavirus.
NHS England are reminding people that the best way to avoid coronavirus is to follow the social distancing and lockdown measures imposed by the government.
