Another 828 coronavirus patients have died in hospital in England, taking the total to 6,483.
The latest figures, released by NHS England, count newly-confirmed deaths of hospital patients who have COVID-19, reported up until 5pm on Tuesday.
Patients were aged between 22 and 103, and 46 (aged 35 to 96) had no known underlying health condition.
The highest number of coronavirus fatalities came in London, with 201, followed by the Midlands with 171.
Also reporting three figures were the North West with 128 the South East with 120, and the North East with 101.
There were 70 deaths recorded in the East of England and 37 in the South West.
It is the largest overall increase reported by NHS England so far.
The other home nations have also reported increases in deaths:
70 in Scotland – a rise to 366
33 in Wales – total is 245
Five in Northern Ireland – total is 78
Those figures combined with NHS England’s total takes the nationwide daily rise to 936.
But the different home nations collate their figures at different times throughout the day, so there are sometimes discrepancies between the UK government’s total when adding up the individual numbers.
The Department of Health is expected to publish its total update for the UK this afternoon.
