Another 19 coronavirus patients have died at Royal Stoke and County Hospitals.
The University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Trust (UHNM) which oversees both medical facilities has now recorded 1,041 coronavirus deaths.
Each of the patients died within 28 days of receiving a positive coronavirus test result.
The increase echoes other hospital trusts around Staffordshire and Cheshire as a number of deaths have been recorded over the past 24 hours.
The East Cheshire NHS Trust – which looks after Congleton War Memorial and Macclesfield District General Hospitals – has recorded another two coronavirus deaths in the last day.
While the Mid Cheshire NHS Foundation Trust – which manages Leighton Hospital in Crewe – has recorded two more deaths bringing a total of 355 deaths.
A problem with recording means Public Health England has not yet been able to publish the number of people to have died nationally or by local authority.
A message on the coronavirus dashboard says: “Due to an issue with the processing of deaths data, the update for 14 January 2021 is delayed.”
Public Health England later said a further 1,248 people had died within 28 days of testing positive for Covid-19 in the UK as of Thursday.
