ANOTHER four people have died from coronavirus at Great Western Hospital, the NHS has reported.

The latest figures show that two patients with Covid-19 died on Sunday, January 3 and two more yesterday.

The total number of coronavirus patients who have lost their lives after testing positive for coronavirus at GWH now stands at 189.

There have been 15 deaths in the past week, up from four the previous week.

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.
