Another two coronavirus deaths have been recorded at Greater Manchester’s hospitals.
It comes after the region’s hospital death toll reached 2,000 yesterday (Saturday).
Some 2,007 people have now passed away having contracted COVID-19 at Greater Manchester’s NHS trusts.
The figures do not include deaths in the community, such as care homes, so the true number is likely to be far greater.
