A man with no underlying health conditions has died with coronavirus in Norfolk’s largest hospital.

The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH) released a statement confirming the death of the man in his 70s on Saturday, November 7.

It said: “We can confirm that sadly a man in his 70s with no underlying health conditions, who had tested positive for Covid-19, has passed away at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.”

On November 6, the NNUH confirmed a man in his 60s with underlying health conditions died after testing positive for Covid-19, which was the first death in a month at the hospital of someone who had tested positive for the virus.

At a press conference on Thursday, Dr Louise Smith, public health director for Norfolk, said rates of Covid-19 in Norfolk were still increasing, up to 92.2 cases per 100,000 people over the past seven days, compared to 89.2pc last week.
