Coronavirus: Three new patient deaths confirmed as King's Lynn hospital admissions fall
Three more patients are now known to have died with coronavirus at Lynn's Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
The latest fatalities, which occurred between last Tuesday, May 3, and Saturday, May 7, were reported in daily NHS figures released on Wednesday.
They take the total Covid death toll recorded at the QEH since the start of the pandemic to 649.
But new figures show there has been a significant drop in the number of patients being admitted to the hospital with the virus.
A total of 30 patients with Covid-19 were admitted in the week to last Sunday, May 8, down 18 on the previous week.
Meanwhile, 156 positive tests were recorded in the West Norfolk during the seven days to yesterday, a fall of more than 14 per cent on the previous week.
