Modify Activity Count trigger to Count Email Views

Hi All, 

I currently have this trigger to count how many Activities are on Lead:
trigger TaskUpdateLead on Task (after delete, after insert, after undelete, after update) {

Set<ID> LeadIds = new Set<ID>();

//We only care about tasks linked to Leads.

String leadPrefix = Lead.SObjectType.getDescribe().getKeyPrefix();

//Add any Lead ids coming from the new data

    for (Task t : Trigger.new) {
     if (t.WhoId!= null && string.valueof(t.WhoId).startsWith(leadPrefix) ) {

//adding unique lead ids since there can be many tasks with single lead
//Also add any Lead ids coming from the old data (deletes, moving an activity from one Lead to another)

    for (Task t2 : Trigger.old) {
     if (t2.WhoId!= null && string.valueof(t2.WhoId).startsWith(leadPrefix) )
//adding unique lead ids since there can be many tasks with single lead

     if (LeadIds.size() > 0){

List<Lead> leadsWithTasks = [select id,Activity_Count__c,(select id from Tasks) from Lead where Id IN : Leadids];

List<Lead> leadsUpdatable = new List<Lead>();

for(Lead L : leadsWithTasks){

L.Activity_Count__c = L.Tasks.size();



update leadsUpdatable;
//update all the leads with activity count



I would like to modify this trigger to count the total number of views from the tasks to a custom field View_Sum__c on the lead. Below is the screenshot of activities with View count. I would like to put the sum (in this case, 5) in a field on the lead(View_Sum__c). 

View count in Activities

Thank you for your help!
