According to the latest Care Quality Commission statistics, there were two coronavirus-related deaths across Hampshire between March 27 and April 1.
Both were recorded in the Hampshire County Council area, not in Portsmouth or Southampton.
And the week before (March 20-26), one was recorded in Portsmouth and the other in the Hampshire County Council area.
This is a significant reduction compared to previous reports, including the two weeks from February 20th to March 5th, with 33 Covid deaths in county-wide care facilities.
Nationwide, 19 deaths in Covid-care facilities have also declined, with 58 recorded in UK care facilities in the last week.
Since the record began on April 10, 2020, 950 Covids have died in long-term care facilities in the Hampshire County Council area. At that time, there were 99 in Portsmouth and 104 in Southampton.
There are currently 28,963 people in the UK.
