The National Records of Scotland found there were 4,769 excess deaths in Scotland between March 23 and June 7 while the Northern Ireland Statistics & Research Agency put the figure for Northern Ireland at 940 excess deaths between March 21 and June 5.
Together, this means the total number of excess deaths in the UK across this period now stands at 64,402.
All figures are based on death registrations.
The number of deaths involving Covid-19 in the UK has now passed 53,000, according to the latest available data.
The total includes new figures published on Tuesday by the Office for National Statistics, which show that 47,820 deaths involving Covid-19 had occurred in England and Wales up to June 5 (and had been registered by June 13).
Figures published last week by the National Records for Scotland showed that 4,000 deaths involving Covid-19 had been registered in Scotland up to June 7.
The latest figures from the Northern Ireland Statistics and Research Agency, also published last week, showed 779 deaths involving Covid-19 had occurred in Northern Ireland up to June 5 (and had been registered up to June 10).
Together these figures mean that so far 52,599 deaths have been registered in the UK where Covid-19 was mentioned on the death certificate, including suspected cases.
Between June 6 and June 14, a further 430 hospital patients who had tested positive for Covid-19 died in England, according to NHS England; while a further 44 people in hospital and care homes who had tested positive for Covid-19 died in Wales, according to Public Health Wales.
And in Northern Ireland, a further four people who had tested positive for Covid-19 died between June 6 and June 14, according to the Northern Ireland Department of Health.
These add up to a further 478 deaths that have occurred since June 6, and together with the total figure of 52,599 registered deaths, mean the overall death toll for the UK is just over 53,000, at 53,077.
Details of deaths that took place in Scotland since the cut-off point for the latest registration data (June 7) are not available, because the Scottish Government does not report deaths by the date on which they occurred.
