A man in his 20s is among three further deaths with Covid-19 announced at a Norfolk hospital.
In a statement posted on its website the James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston said: "Sadly, we can confirm that three people who were being cared for at the James Paget University Hospital, who had tested positive for Covid-19, have died.
"The patients were a man in his 20s, a man in his 50s, and a woman in her 70s.
"All three had underlying health conditions. Their families have been informed and our thoughts and condolences are with them."
The announcement brings the total number to have died at the hospital in February to 78, although the figure could still rise.
