THE LATEST Coronavirus figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) show how many deaths there have been across Worcestershire.

Between March and May Droitwich had 19 and Worcester City had 62 where Covid-19 was mentioned on the death certificate.

Bromsgrove was the worst in the county with 72 (95 when the wider district was considered – eight in Alvechurch and 15 in Wythall).

Elsewhere, Redditch had 59 Coronavirus deaths and Malvern 19.

The last death due to coronavirus recorded by Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust, was on July 14.

The Trust has confirmed since the pandemic broke 275 patients who were being cared for in its hospitals, and had tested positive for Covid-19, had died.

The patients whose deaths were announced so far were aged between 41 and 100.

Meanwhile the ONS estimates that in the July 13 to 19, one in 2,000 people within the community (which excludes those in hospitals, care homes or other institutional settings) had Covid-19. This equates to an estimated 27,700 people.

Following the peak recorded in April 2020, in June 2020 there has been a large decrease in the proportion of deaths involving coronavirus across all English regions and Wales.

The map will next be updated in early September to include deaths occurring in July 2020.
