ONS data and maps of Covid-19 related deaths
« on: Sunday 14 June 20 19:38 BST (UK) »
A while ago I read a post, probably here on RootsChat, with a link to the ONS data on Covid-19 as a cause of death, with mapping down to a district council basis - England and Wales only. This is available here:

Office for National Statistics: http://www.rootschat.com/links/01ple/

More recently, someone was asking if more precise local information was available - sorry, I can't remember who it was, either for this or the link above.

A newsletter for where I live has just sent out a mailing with an embedded version of exactly that, so I've now found the original on the ONS site, which gives the information broken down into local government ward areas. This is at:

Office for National Statistics: http://www.rootschat.com/links/01plf/

I think this is what was being asked for, but I don't know how useful the numbers are in isolation. For example, the ward where I live has quite a high number of deaths, whereas others nearby have far fewer. I don't think there's anything on the site to say why - my best guess is that my ward has a number of care homes, but it would be quite helpful to have a more authoritative explanation.

In my local area 10 in April, one in May.

I can't help but think this is from a local care home, but hadn't heard of them in our local newspaper. Deaths in the neighbouring area, which were reported in the paper were from a care home - 3 in March, 21 in April and 1 in May.

Sobering thought, we live on the edge of a large town in NW England. These two areas have a similar number of deaths as what appears to be the large general hospital in the center of the town (0, 17, 15).

Very sad for the individuals and their families, but good to see that the number in (assumed) care homes are dropping considerably. The (assumed) hospital deaths not falling as quickly, but perhaps inevitable.

Just four in our village and the next one and I think they were care homes.  All in April, nothing since.  Thanks for the link.
