WORCESTERSHIRE’S “all settings” coronavirus death toll has risen to 518, new figures show.

The success of lockdown and social distancing can also been seen in the latest Office of National Statistics (ONS) data as three county people - with Covid-19 mentioned on the death certificate - in total died during the latest week of data available, June 19 and June 26. This is the lowest week so far and compares with the numbers at the height of the pandemic when around 100 county people a week were dying in all settings.

The figures, which cover people who died from Covid-19 and the local authority area in which they lived, show during that week all three people died of Covid-19 in hospital.

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