One more death related to coronavirus in Cornwall

Four deaths related to coronavirus were recorded across Devon and Cornwall in the latest ONS weekly figures.

The latest figures released by the Office for National Statistics today, relate to the week of June 20 and June 26, but were registered up to July 4.

There has been a slight rise in the number of deaths after the last week saw just one death in Cornwall recorded.

The latest figures show one death in a Cornish care home and three in hospitals – one from Plymouth and two from East Devon - but the four deaths is the second lowest total since the crisis began in March.

The figures relate to deaths in which COVID-19 was mentioned on the death certificate were registered in that time period.

The Isles of Scilly has still yet to see a COVID-19 related death and the South Hams and West Devon have now gone six weeks without a death, while Mid Devon and North Devon five weeks and Teignbridge and Torridge four weeks without a death.

Previous weeks have seen 1, 7, 10, 11, 15, 38, 44, 69, 84, 107, 88, 60, 16, and nine deaths registered.

The figures show in which local authority the deceased’s usual place of residence was.

For instance, if someone may have died in Derriford Hospital but lived in West Devon, while the death may have been registered in Plymouth, their death would be recorded in the mortality statistics for the ONS figures against West Devon.

In total, 564 deaths from coronavirus have been registered across Devon and Cornwall, with 301 in hospitals, 220 in care homes, 42 at home, and one in a hospice.

Of the deaths, 205 have been registered in Cornwall, 90 in Plymouth, 58 in Torbay, 49 in East Devon, 39 in Exeter, 33 in Teignbridge, 26 in North Devon, 20 in Torridge, 17 in Mid Devon and West Devon, 12 in the South Hams, and none in the Isles of Scilly.
