A further 22 patients with Covid-19 have been confirmed dead at the London North West University Healthcare NHS Trust.

NHS England has confirmed an additional 22 deaths of patients with Covid-19 being treated at the trust which manages Northwick Park Hospital in Harrow and Ealing Hospital.

These deaths range between March 28 and April 1.

This takes the total death toll of Covid-19 patients at the trust to 149.

Northwick Park Hospital and Ealing Hospital have become the battlefront fighting Covid-19 in the UK, as the trust has the highest recorded amount of Covid-19 deaths out of any UK NHS trust.

The trust with the second highest recorded deaths is Kings College Hospital NHS Trust with a death toll of 113.

In yesterday’s reports, there were 18 further confirmed deaths according to NHS England.

Currently, March 29 had the most recorded deaths at the trust with 23, but this data is likely to change as more post-mortem tests are processed and data from them are validated.

The trust runs a series of hospitals including Northwick Park Hospital in Harrow, Ealing Hospital and Central Middlesex Hospital – but it is not clear which hospitals these deaths took place in.

NHS England announced nationally another 605 people have died after testing positive for Covid-19.

It brings the total number of confirmed reported deaths in England to 3,302.

Patients were aged between 24 and 100 years old.

Northwick Park hospital declared a "critical incident" on March 19 due to the rising numbers of coronavirus patients, which lasted for 24 hours before it was stood down.

As a result, the hospital had met its beds at full capacity and had to send patients to neighbouring hospitals around and near north west London.

Staff at Northwick Park Hospital have been urging people to stay at home to help them, while another member of staff said they were feeling a “sense of paranoia” due to the influx of patients and disorganisation with personal protective equipment (PPE).

Earlier on, staff were not being tested for symptoms and Dr Laith Al-Rubaiy at the hospital admitted that a colleague of his had to pay hundreds for a private test, only to find out they had contracted the virus.

Another worker, who wished to remain anonymous, explained to the Harrow Times that there was a confusion with the handling of personal protective equipment - causing them to share one individual visor between them and a colleague.

As of April 2, there are 378 confirmed cases of Covid-19 in Harrow and 559 in its neighbouring borough, Brent.

Brent has the highest recorded confirmed Covid-19 cases in a London borough.
