A man in his 20s is among three further deaths with Covid-19 announced at a Norfolk hospital.

"The patients were a man in his 20s, a man in his 50s, and a woman in her 70s.
"All three had underlying health conditions. Their families have been informed and our thoughts and condolences are with them."
