THE success of the lockdown in bringing down the number of Covid-19 deaths can be seen in the latest Office of National Statistics (ONS) data.

The figures cover people who died from Covid-19 and the local authority area in which they lived, and provide information on deaths outside of county hospitals.

The data shows nine people - with Covid-19 mentioned on the death certificate - in total died during the latest week of data available, June 12 and June 19.

This compares with the numbers at the height of the pandemic when around 100 county people a week were dying in all settings.

The figures show during that week:

Five people died in a care home; two from Bromsgrove, two from Wychavon and one Malvern Hills resident.

Three people died in hospital; one from Bromsgrove, one from Redditch and one from Wychavon.

One person died at home from Redditch.

There were no deaths in the county in a hospice, a communal establishment or elsewhere.

The ONS statistics also reveal that in that week there were no deaths of residents from Worcester or Wyre Forest.
