Coronavirus (COVID-19) latest insights
03 August 2021
ONS have published the latest weekly deaths registrations, as well as figures on excess deaths during the pandemic at a neighbourhood level.
There were 11,160 deaths from all causes in the UK in the week ending 23 July 2021, with deaths above the five-year average in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Of these, 392 deaths were involved the coronavirus (COVID-19), accounting for around 1 in 29 deaths (3.5%). This is a 46.3% increase on the previous week.
Meanwhile, we have compared deaths at a neighbourhood level between March 2020 and April 2021 with the average for the same month between 2015 and 2019.
Some neighbourhoods saw more than twice as many residents die than would have been expected for the time of year during the spring and summer of 2020, while excess deaths were spread out over a longer period in the following autumn and winter.
