died in hospitals in England and had tested positive for COVID-19 or where
COVID-19 was mentioned on the death certificate.

We are, however, withholding this information under s21 of the FOI Act

The daily statistical publication contains:

* COVID-19 deaths by region: Cases where COVID-19 is mentioned on the

in relation to deaths outside of hospitals.

Please note that the above figures do not state whether or not COVID-19
was the single cause of death. NHS England only collects data with respect
to deaths of patients who have died in hospitals in England and had tested
positive for COVID-19 in the 28 days prior to their death, or where
