As of Wednesday (May 20), the number of cases in Derbyshire now stands at 1,593 - an increase of 19 since Tuesday. 

Of those, there are 196 cases in the High Peak - as lower tier local authority data has now been made available. That's a rise of just one in the space of 24 hours. 

In Tameside, there are 642 confirmed cases to date - up by nine since Tuesday. 

Meanwhile, in Oldham, the number of cases is now 1,017 - a daily increase of five. 

At the time of writing, the number of deaths at local hospital trusts is listed by NHS England as follows: 

  • Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust  -  414 (a daily increase of one)
  • Stockport Foundation Trust  -  175 (a daily increase of one)
  • Tameside and Glossop Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust  - 142 (a second successive daily increase of none)

Tameside and Glossop Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust has been publishing how many people have been admitted to the hospital and then discharged having tested positive for Covid-19. As of Monday (May 4), there have been 187 patients. That's the latest figure that has been released.

It was reported yesterday (Wednesday) that for the first time since the pandemic struck in Oldham, there were no COVID-19 patients being treated on ventilators in hospital. Read more.

In total, there are now 248,293 confirmed cases in the UK as of Wednesday - a daily increase of 2,472. 

There have also been 35,704 deaths in the UK - an increase of 363 in the space of 24 hours. 

In England, there have been 145,808 cases and 31,843 deaths to date. 

However, separate figures from the Office for National Statistics released on Tuesday showed the UK's true number of COVID-19 victims is at least 44,000 - much higher than the government's official count. 

According to the ONS, there were 29 deaths from Covid-19 in care homes in Derbyshire between 8 May and 15 May. 

In Tameside, there were 12 deaths from coronavirus between the same period and in Oldham, there were six. 

In England, up to 15 May, there were 9,762 deaths in care homes from Covid-19 - including 1,369 in the week between 8 May and 15 May. 

This is based on reporting from care home operators to the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and these figures will be published every Tuesday as part of ONS's weekly deaths release.
