Another 147 people who tested positive for coronavirus have died, bringing the total number of reported reported hospital deaths in England to 25,691.
NHS England announced the latest numbers, saying patients were between 43 and 98 years old.
Five of the 147 patients (aged between 46 and 84) had no known underlying health condition.
Their families have been informed.
The number of deaths of patients with Covid-19 by region is as follows:
East of England 24
North East and Yorkshire 27
Of the 147 new deaths announced on Sunday, 28 were on May 23, 40 on May 22, and May 12 on May 21.
The numbers also show that 49 of the new deaths occurred between May 1 and 20, 16 were in April, and the other two occurred in March with the first new death on March 13.
NHS England publishes updated figures every day with the data of each coronavirus-related hospital death in England, including often previously innumerable deaths that occurred several days or even weeks ago.
This is because the time it takes for deaths to be confirmed as test positive for Covid-19 is processed post-mortem studies and data from the tests are validated.
Figures published today by NHS England show that April 8 still has the highest number of hospital deaths in one day, with a total of 891.
NHS bosses point out that the Covid patient reporting system was down for a period of time on Saturday, May 16.
This can be reflected in the number of deaths reported by NHS England and NHS Improvement today.
NHS England and NHS Improvement publish the number of patients who died in the hospital and tested positive for COVID-19 in England.
As of Tuesday, April 28, NHS England and NHS Improvement also report the number of patient deaths where there was no Covid-19 positive test result, but where Covid-19 has been documented as a direct or underlying cause of the death certificate
This change has been made for deaths that occurred on April 24 and beyond.
Today, 17 deaths have been reported without a positive Covid-19 test result.
