There were three more Covid deaths in Blackpool

The figures include anyone who died within 28 days of a positive test result for Covid-19, and whose usual residence was in Blackpool or on the Fylde coast.

Daily death counts are revised each day, with each case backdated to the actual date of death.

Figures reported today are likely to lower as a result of a lag in reporting deaths over the bank holiday.

A total of 149,401 deaths were recorded throughout England by April 19 (Tuesday) – up from 148,990 on Thursday, the final working day before people started their Easter holiday celebrations at the weekend.
