Daily death counts are revised each day, with each case backdated to the actual date of death, so some areas might see their figures revised down.
The figures also show that three in five people in Crawley have received two doses of a Covid-19 vaccine.
The latest figures show 58,857 people had received both jabs by July 22 (Thursday) – 60% of those aged 18 and over, based on the number of people on the National Immunisation Management Service database.
Across England, 69% of people aged 18 and above had received a second dose of the jab. Unlike at local level, the national rate was calculated using mid-2020 population estimates from the Office for National Statistics.
