Three new coronavirus deaths have been recorded at the Buckinghamshire Trust in the past 24 hours, the latest official figures show.

It comes as Downing Street announced that lockdown measures will be reviewed around the three-week mark next Monday.

NHS England figures show 19 people had died in hospital at the Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust as of 5pm on Tuesday (April 7).

That was an increase of three compared to Monday, when there were 16.

They were among 682 deaths recorded across the South East.

Of the 23 trusts across the South East, the Buckinghamshire Healthcare trust has the ​15th highest death toll.

Daily death counts are revised each day, with each case backdated to the actual date of death.

This means some of the deaths that were first recorded in the last 24 hours may actually have taken place days earlier.

NHS England guidance states: "Confirmation of Covid-19 diagnosis, death notification and reporting in central figures can take up to several days and the hospitals providing the data are under significant operational pressure."

Only deaths that occur in hospitals where the patient has tested positive for Covid-19 are recorded, with deaths in the community excluded, such as those in care homes.

Across England, the death toll hit 6,483 on Tuesday, up from 5,655.

Separate figures from the Department of Health and Social Care show 55,242 people had tested positive for Covid-19 across the UK as of 9am on Tuesday, up from 51,608 on Monday.

Lockdown measures will be reviewed around the three-week mark on Monday, Downing Street has said, as warnings mounted that it will be too early to ease the restrictions to combat Covid-19.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan echoed ministers in saying the capital is "nowhere near" being able to ease measures, as the World Health Organisation warned leaders to be "very careful".

Boris Johnson, who remains in a stable condition in intensive care, had committed to review if the measures could be eased on Monday, three weeks after he imposed the conditions.

But there had been confusion after Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, who is deputising for the PM, refused to directly answer questions on when it would take place.

The Prime Minister's official spokesman clarified on Wednesday that the review would take place "on or around" the three-week mark as he urged the public to "stick with it" at this critical time.

He highlighted the Government's key advisers having made clear it was too early to say when the coronavirus pandemic would reach its peak and it would be safe to ease the restrictions imposed on March 23.
