Twenty patients have died at the Whittington Hospital after testing positive for Covid-19 in the past three weeks.

The limited quantity of tests carried out so far means the actual number of cases in the UK is likely to be far higher than these figures suggest.

Some 143,186 people had been tested for the virus at the time.

There are 135 confirmed cases of people recovering from the virus, though the actual number will be higher.

Some of the 161 patients in Islington could be among those who have already recovered.
