FOUR people have died from Coronavirus over the weekend, the latest official figures show.

NHS England figures show 137 people had died in hospital at East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust as of 5pm on Sunday.

The Trust covers the DGH as well as hospitals in Hastings and Bexhill.

Speaking at a Downing Street briefing on Monday evening, Health Secretary Matt Hancock said the virus was doubling in some areas of England roughly every seven days.

It would only take a few doublings of cases for hospitals in the capital, Essex and Kent to be “overwhelmed”, he warned.
