There are no official figures on recovery rates at this stage.

Nationally the total number of recorded coronavirus-related deaths is 28,131 with an increase of 621 since yesterday (May 1).

In the last 24 hours it has been confirmed 5,000 more people have been reported as having the virus, taking the total number to 182,260.

However, as reported by the BBC on Wednesday (29 April), these updated daily figures do not yet provide a comprehensive picture of what has happened so far because of the lack of testing in the community in the early days.

Therefore, it means the figures are an underestimate of what has been happening.

As more testing is rolled out, the daily figures from now on will provide a more accurate picture of what is happening than has been the case previously.
