ok. So according to the staging website 4 covid related, deaths in English hospitals were reported in the last 24 hours. But the official total number is 74.

Is there anywhere that I can see when and where these happened?? The last few days the numbers reported that happened in other settings seems to be getting proportionally higher and my brain can't make sense of it.

Ignore them.

Honestly, the deaths announced outside hospital are nonsense right now which is why the Govt have stopped officially announcing them and asked PHE to investigate.

ONS numbers suggest actual out of hospital deaths with covid on the death cert amount to around 30% of deaths now, so the announced numbers are nonsense. They include all people who have died who ever had a positive test, regardless of when or what they died of.
