The time taken to receive positive results is one of the potential factors in the delay between the occurrence of a death and its registration.

As of April 28, 2020, NHS England and NHS Improvement also began reporting the number of patient deaths in which there has been no positive Covid-19 test result, but is documented as a direct or underlying cause of death in the death certification process.

Figures from the latest reporting period show that there were six such deaths in England.
