Coronavirus: Data on deaths in mental health and learning disability units will now be published, NHS announces | The Independent

The NHS will next week begin to publish the numbers of people who are dying from coronavirus in mental health and learning disability units, the government has announced.

England’s national medical director Stephen Powis told the Downing Street daily press briefing that the figures would be published on an “ongoing basis” after calls to paint a clearer picture of the problem.

It comes as figures from the Care Quality Commission showed a sharp increase in deaths among mental health patients compared to last year.
