NHS England has confirmed that 636 people have died in south east London hospitals from coronavirus.

Figures are released daily tracking the number of hospital deaths recorded by each of the UK's NHS trusts.

According to the latest update, King's College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has now recorded 342 deaths, an increase of 3 on yesterday, while Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust has recorded 290 deaths, an increase of 14.

Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust and South London and Maudsley Foundation Trust have each recorded two deaths.

More than 100,000 people are grieving in isolation as a result of the coronavirus, a bereavement charity has said.

Andy Langford, clinical director of Cruse Bereavement Care (CBC), said: "Grieving is a normal part of life, and even during periods of global stability can be massively distressing.

"Unfortunately, the death toll we are currently experiencing, whilst hugely tragic in itself, means that hundreds of thousands of people are going to be left grieving in isolation."

He was speaking after the UK's first month in lockdown, as the number of people who have died with coronavirus in hospital is just over 18,000.

CBC estimates that six people suffer intense grief for every one that dies, meaning at least 108,000 people may be trying to cope with a death.

Social distancing means that funerals, which are on average attended by 50 people, are not able to go ahead as planned.
