A new map from the Office for National Statistics shows the areas of Devon and Cornwall where the most people have died with coronavirus.

The map shows the number of people who died in every ward across the region and you are able to enter your postcode and see the figures for your area.

It counts deaths where COVID-19 is mentioned as a factor on the death certificate.

Across the region, the Probus and Roseland area of Cornwall has had the most recorded deaths with 14.

While Plymstock/Elburton is the highest in Plymouth with 13. In Exeter, St Thomas West has seen 12 deaths – the most in the city.

The Clifton and Maidenway area of Paignton has had the most deaths of any area of Torbay.

The deaths include those of people living in care homes which may account for spikes in fatalities in what are otherwise locations with a low number of cases.

You can enter your postcode using the interactive map in the devonlive on-line article

[Looks to Owl as if the hotspots in this (wobbly) table may be linked to clusters of Care Homes]

  1. Pingback: Figures for local deaths from Covid-19 are finally revealed: Seaton and Axminster had the highest tolls in East Devon « SEATON & COLYTON matters
  2. Thanks for this. These are presumably the official COVID deaths, not representing “excess deaths”
