Across the five trusts which have hospitals in Lancashire, only one reported new deaths yesterday (April 10).
Unlike previous days, no deaths have been announced across Lancashire in Blackpool, Lancashire Teaching Hospitals, East Lancashire Teaching Hospitals Trust and at the Southport and Ormskirk NHS Trust. Morecambe Bay Trust reported 7 deaths.
Trusts are not always able to report deaths as they happen – therefore a trust may report deaths a few days later.
Today’s figures do not necessarily reflect the situation as it currently stands and the figures are not expected to stand still throughout the weekend. Southport and Ormskirk NHS Trust has announced no new deaths today. Its current death toll for patients with coronavirus stands at 38.
