This has increased by two from the previous weekly figures where 151 deaths had been recorded at the hospital.

The latest deaths come as volunteers have been urged to stay away from the hospital because of an increase in coronavirus cases.

Norfolk County Council has urged people to stick to the government guidelines due to the rise in cases across the county.

A social media post by the authority said: "Together, we must slow the spread of the virus and do everything we can to look out for one another.

"Wear a face covering where possible, wash your hands, keep your distance and stick to the rule of six to help."
