Covid-19 Deaths in England Are 15% Higher Than NHS Reports

In Rhode Island, one factor has been involved with most of the state's coronavirus deaths: nursing homes.

The United States is one of the countries which has been badly hit by COVID-19, and the country recorded more than 1,500 deaths on Monday.

'The spread in care homes has largely gone under the radar because the figures are not released in the same way as the daily statistics for deaths in hospitals.

Chris Laxton, executive director of the The Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine, said it would be extremely helpful to have a national database "to see the beginnings of a picture emerge of how completely dire the situation is in nursing homes". At Golden Crest, 80 residents and 30 staff members have tested positive for the virus. "We have been able to pinpoint where the virus is", said Vardhan here in a video conference.

With 1,076 new COVID-19 cases reported in the last 24 hours, India's tally of coronavirus cases has risen to 11,439, said the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare on Wednesday.

The Alzheimer's Society, Marie Curie, Age UK, Care England and Independent Age have written to the government calling on it to publish a comprehensive plan to support social care through the coronavirus pandemic.

England's aged care regulator, the Care Quality Commission, has said it will begin recording deaths in homes from this week by asking care providers to give daily updates on the number of confirmed and suspected cases.

Nick Stripe, head of health analysis and life events at the ONS said: 'The 16,387 deaths that were registered in England and Wales during the week ending 3 April is the highest weekly total since we started compiling weekly deaths data in 2005'.
