A BREAKDOWN which shows the number of coronavirus-related deaths by each postcode area has been released for the first time since the outbreak began.

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) has recorded every death in England and Wales where Covid-19 has been mentioned on an individual's death certificate.

The deaths, which occurred between March 1 and April 17 - registered up until April 18, have either been caused by Covid-19 or the virus has been a 'contributing factor.'

Due to a time lag in the reporting of figures, caused by the length of time taken between date of death and the date it is officially registered, the true death toll may not be revealed for several months.

However, to give you a better understanding of how the virus is affecting your area, we have analysed and published the area of every Covid-19 related death in the Halstead region.

All Covid-19 related deaths in the Halstead area:

  • Halstead Central and West - 1
  • Hedingham, Gosfield and Greenstead Green - 1
  • Halstead East and Colnes - 1
  • Bures Hamlet, Maplestead and Belchamp - 1
