Map shows where coronavirus deaths have occurred in Cornwall

Map shows where coronavirus deaths have occurred in Cornwall

Published by Sarah Yeoman at 11:36am 4th May 2020. (Updated at 4:11pm 4th May 2020)

A new interactive map has revealed exactly where coronavirus deaths have occurred in Cornwall.

The tool from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) shows which towns and villages have had fatal cases.

The map shows that the area in the Duchy with the highest number of Covid-19 deaths is currently the Probus and The Roseland area, with 11.

Plenty of towns and villages also show that there have been no coronavirus-related deaths in their area at all.

Data used in the map only includes deaths that occurred between the 1st March and 17th April 2020, and were registered up until 18th April.

The latest information from ONS also shows that the south west is the region with the lowest proportion of deaths across the country.

As of Monday morning, the current Covid-19 death toll in Cornwall stands at 81 - with 507 confirmed cases across the county.

You can use the map and check the results for your area below...

"By mid-April, the region with the highest proportion of deaths involving Covid-19 was London, with the virus being involved in more than 4 in 10 deaths since the start of March. 

"In contrast, the region with the lowest proportion of Covid-19 deaths was the South West, which saw just over 1 in 10 deaths involving coronavirus. 

"The 11 local authorities with the highest mortality rates were all London boroughs, with Newham, Brent and Hackney suffering the highest rates of Covid-19 related deaths.

"People living in more deprived areas have experienced Covid-19 mortality rates more than double those living in less deprived areas. 

"General mortality rates are normally higher in more deprived areas, but so far Covid-19 appears to be taking them higher still."

Nick Stripe, Head of Health Analysis, Office for National Statistics
