Statistics released today from NISRA show that three coronavirus related deaths occurred in the week April 24-30 here.
The NISRA data provides a broader picture of the impact of Covid-19 than the death toll reported by Stormont’s Department of Health.
The Department’s statistics focus primarily on hospital deaths and only include people who have tested positive for the virus.
NISRA obtains its data from death certificates on which Covid-19 is recorded as a factor by a medical professional, regardless of where the death took place or whether the patient tested positive.
