NHS data released this afternoon (Saturday, May 9) has revealed that 116 hospital patients have died after contracting the disease- with no further fatalities reported at the site over the past day.

The NHS figures could be higher as they do not include deaths that occurred in care homes or the community.

Elsewhere in South Yorkshire, Sheffield has reported a death toll of 230, an increase of two in the past day.
