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 updated each day and are only specific to the local authority area.

The true number of cases in each area is likely to be much higher as generally only people who are severely ill are being tested by the NHS.

Meanwhile the figures for confirmed deaths are broken down by NHS health trusts, ie the organisations that run our hospitals.

The number in brackets is the change on the previous day, where available.

The figures released each day often include patients who died several days ago but whose deaths were not published due to testing and discussion with families taking place.

Meanwhile due to differences in when the figures are released 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.

Where is the data from?

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

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 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, and at University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust, which runs Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Good Hope, Heartlands and Solihull hospitals.

*Sandwell and West Birmingham NHS Trust runs hospitals in both Sandwell and Birmingham, with City Hospital in Birmingham and Sandwell General Hospital in Smethwick.

Where possible we have sought to clarify where the deaths occurred but this has not always been possible, hence the need to merge the statistics.

However the case figures are released by council, not by health trust, and thus we are still able to separate them by borough.
