Latest number of coronavirus deaths and confirmed cases in your area

Wolverhampton | Coronavirus | Published: | Last Updated:

See the latest figures for coronavirus cases and deaths in your area.

This page will be updated daily with the latest number of people who have tested positive for Covid-19 and the latest number of confirmed deaths in your area.

The figures for positive tests are specific to the local authority area (eg Wolverhampton Council, Sandwell Council, Birmingham City Council).

The true number of cases in each area is likely to be much higher due to the limited amount of testing carried out by the NHS.

Meanwhile the figures for confirmed deaths are broken down by NHS health trusts (the organisations that run our hospitals) such as the Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust.

Where shown, a number in brackets is the change from the previous day.

This data does not include people who have died away from hospital, such as in care homes. This is released separately - and only by region, not county or town - via the ONS. Although we are aware of some deaths away from hospital we have decided to not include these here for consistency.

All data is now correct according to the latest NHS figures released on the dates below.

Where is the data from?

The number of confirmed cases in each council area is updated daily by Public Health England here.

Staffordshire figures combine cases at both Stoke-on-Trent City Council and Staffordshire County Council.

The death toll is released to the press by NHS England daily and broken down by health trust:

  • The figures for Wolverhampton refer to the Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust, which runs New Cross Hospital.
  • The figures for Dudley refer to the Dudley Group NHS Foundation Trust, which runs Russells Hall Hospital.
  • The figures for Walsall refer to the Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust, which runs Walsall Manor Hospital.
  • The figures for Staffordshire refer to the University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Trust, which runs County Hospital in Stafford and the Royal Stoke University Hospital.
  • The figures for Sandwell and Birmingham are a combination of deaths at Sandwell and West Birmingham NHS Trust (which runs City Hospital and Sandwell General), at University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust (which runs Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Good Hope, Heartlands and Solihull hospitals), at Birmingham Community Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (which runs a variety of community health centres across the West Midlands) and at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Birmingham.
  • The figures for Worcestershire refer to the Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust, which runs Kidderminster Hospital and Treatment Centre, Worcestershire Royal Hospital in Worcester and Alexandra Hospital, Redditch.

Where possible we have sought to clarify which deaths happened specifically at Sandwell General Hospital in Smethwick, however this has not always been possible, hence the need to merge the Birmingham and Sandwell death statistics.

Important to note

The death figures released each day do not only refer to patients who have died in the last 24 hours. They refer to the deaths of coronavirus patients confirmed in the last 24 hours. Some patients are only included in the statistics several days later due to testing or discussions with family.

The patients may not have died as a direct result of coronavirus, but had been confirmed as testing positive.

Due to differences in how the figures are compiled by each country's health service, the England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Irish figures may not add up to the same as the UK figure released daily by the Government.
