The Government figures do not include all deaths involving Covid-19 across the UK, which are thought to have passed 55,000.
The Department of Health and Social Care also said that in the 24-hour period up to 9am on Tuesday, there were 581 positive test results. Overall, a total of 286,349 cases have been confirmed.
It comes after just 16 new deaths involving Covid-19 were reported yesterday, the lowest daily figure for a Monday since the nation went into lockdown.
Figures on Mondays have tended to be lower because of weekend lags in reporting.
