The South Gloucestershire areas hit the hardest by the coronavirus pandemic have been revealed.

An interactive map, released by the Office for National Statistics, allows you to find out how many coronavirus-related deaths there have been in your area.

In the South Gloucestershire area, Kingswood North East has had the highest number of recorded deaths with 15 deaths recorded.

Other areas which have had a high number of deaths include Thornbury North (13), Thornbury South (11) and Emersons Green (11).

However, some areas in South Gloucestershire haven’t recorded any deaths including Yate West and Yate South.

The news comes as the ‘R’ rate is now above 1 in the south west, according to the latest data published by the government today (Friday, June 12).

Coronavirus mortality rates more than halved in all but two regions in England and Wales between April and May, figures show.

After rising between March and April, age-standardised mortality rates fell by more than 50% in all regions except the North East and Yorkshire and The Humber, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) said.

Accounting for population structure, there were 81.9 deaths involving Covid-19 per 100,000 people in England and 67.6 per 100,000 in Wales between March 1 and May 31.

The North East, North West and Yorkshire and the Humber had the highest mortality rates in May, as London coronavirus deaths dropped.

Friday’s figures show that people living in the most deprived areas of England continue to experience coronavirus mortality rates more than double those living in the least deprived areas.

There were 128.3 deaths per 100,000 people in the most deprived areas – 118% higher than the 58.8 deaths per 100,000 in the least deprived parts of the country.

This is greater than the difference in the mortality rate for all deaths, which is 92.2% higher than in the least deprived areas.
