Coronavirus: Map shows number of deaths from Covid-19 by area - search by postcode

The number of coronavirus-related deaths affecting your neighbourhood can now be found via an interactive map.

Enter your postcode and the map will show you the number of Covid-19 deaths for the five-month period of March to July 2020.

You can also scroll around the map and click on the green circles for information.

The data is based on where coronavirus was the underlying cause or mentioned on the death certificate as a contributory factor

We have also pulled out the data from the Office for National Statistics, into searchable tables.

It indicates that King’s Hedges was the area of Cambridge most affected with 25 deaths in the period. The area had 37 non coronavirus-related deaths in the same period.

East Chesterton had 18 coronavirus-related deaths, while West Chesterton had 12.

All but two areas of the city - Central and West Cambridge, and Eddington and Castle - recorded virus-related deaths in the period.

But there were no coronavirus-related deaths in July.

In South Cambridgeshire, Hardwick and Highfields was the worst affected area, with 10 Covid-19 deaths recorded. Histon, Impington and Orchard Park had six, while several areas had five - Linton and Balsham, Little Shelford, Foxton and Haslingfield, and Papworth, Caxton and Fen Drayton. Two areas - Bar Hill and Boxworth, and Cottenham, had no coronavirus-related deaths. There were no Covid-19 deaths in July in the district.

In East Cambridgeshire, meanwhile, Swaffham and Bottisham was by far the worst area affected, with 19 coronavirus-related deaths. Little Downham and Sutton recorded eight, while North Ely had six. However, Soham recorded the most deaths overall, with 57, only four of which had Covid-19 on the death certificate.

There were no Covid-19 deaths in July in this district either.

The areas covered by the data are known as middle super output areas, and therefore do not relate to council ward areas. Instead, they are areas with similar sized populations of around 7,000-8,000 people.

Looking at trends nationwide, the ONS found that urban areas - where there is a greater density of people aiding transmission of the virus - experienced higher levels of coronavirus deaths.

And the ONS found more deprived areas suffered higher mortality rates than less deprived areas.

It said: “Looking at deaths involving the coronavirus (Covid-19), the mortality rate in the least deprived areas in England was less than half of the mortality rate in the most deprived areas across April to July. The age-standardised mortality rate of deaths involving Covid-19 was 3.1 deaths per 100,000 population for the most deprived areas in England in July; this was statistically significantly higher than the 1.4 deaths per 100,000 population in the least deprived areas.”

Meanwhile, this map indicates the cumulative number of Covid-19 cases by local authority area. Click on the keypad-style menu and switch to table format to view up to date figures for each area over the last 10 days.

This map reveals the cumulative case rate per 100,000 people, enabling you to compare which areas have been worst affected as a proportion of their population.
