Exact death numbers solely from Covid 19

Dear South Tyneside and Sunderland NHS Foundation Trust,

How many people have died in your hospitals from Covid 19 alone? To be clear they have died from Covid 19 only, and were not suffering from any underlying conditions at the time of their death. Your trust publishes figures online but these refer to deaths with 28 days of a positive Covid test and they could have died from other causes.

Please could you provide the exact figures of people who have died from only Covid 19 and nothing else, from these two time periods;

1st February 2020 to 20th December 2020
20th December to 4th February 2021

Yours faithfully,

M Jones
