A BREAKDOWN of all the coronavirus related deaths across the Halstead area have been revealed in new figures.

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 new data shows the number of deaths involving Covid-19 split by areas within local authorities up until the end of June.

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.

But 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 our region.

All the Covid-19 related deaths in the Halstead area:

  • Halstead East & Colnes - 16 
  • Bocking Churchstreet & Blackwater - 14
  • Coggeshall & Kelvedon - 8
  • Halstead Central & West - 8
  • Hedingham, Gosfield & Greenstead Green - 5
  • Bures Hamlet, Maplestead & Belchamp - 1
  • Marks Tey & Wakes Colne - 2
  • Steeple Bumpstead & Great Yeldham - 2
  • Bures Hamlet, Maplestead & Belchamp - 1

The ONS data includes deaths for which coronavirus was the underlying cause, or was mentioned on the death certificate as a contributory factor.

The report, which updates figures published in June, shows the wide disparity in the pandemic’s impact on different communities.
