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 last 24 hours may actually have taken place days earlier.

NHS England guidance states: "Confirmation of Covid-19 diagnosis, death notification and reporting in central figures can take up to several days and the hospitals providing the data are under significant operational pressure."

Only deaths that occur in hospitals where the patient has tested positive for Covid-19 are recorded, with deaths in the community excluded, such as those in care homes.

Across England, the death toll hit 26,723 on Sunday, up from 26,530 on Friday.

Separate figures from the Department of Health and Social Care show 274,762 people had tested positive for Covid-19 across the UK as of 9am on Sunday, up from 271,222.
