A woman ill with coronavirus has died at Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital.

It was announced on Tuesday that the 83-year-old, as well as a 79-year-old from Royal Hampshire County Hospital in Winchester, passed away.

It comes as NHS England announced today that a further 83 people from England who tested positive for the disease had died in the last 24 hours, bringing the death toll to 386 in England and 422 across the UK.

It comes after two people died at Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital last week.

A spokesperson for the Trust said: "Sadly, we can confirm that two patients - a man and a woman - who were being cared for by Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, and had tested positive for Covid-19, have died.

"The patients were aged 79 and 83 respectively and both had underlying health conditions. Both families have been informed and our thoughts and condolences are with them at this difficult and distressing time."

One person has also died at Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust, who run hospitals in Farnborough, Ascot and Slough.

Of the 83 English deaths, patients were aged between 33 and 103 years old and all were in the most vulnerable groups.

The youngest casualty to date was 18. 

It comes as hundreds more coronavirus cases have been confirmed, after the government instructed people to stay at home last night.

There have been 1,427 new confirmed cases of Covid-19 in the UK in the last 24 hours, bringing the total to 8,077.

The government announced last night that they were imposing strict new lockdown messages to halt the spread of the virus.

People are now only allowed to leave their houses for a few reasons, including shopping for necessities, one form of excerise a day, looking after vulnerable people and travel to and from work where working from home isn't possible.

The regional breakdown for Tuesday has not yet been released, but on Monday, it was confirmed that 171 patients in Hampshire had tested positive, the highest of any area in the country.
