Coronavirus map reveals number of deaths in every Devon town

Devonlive have just published an interactive map showing where Covid-19 related deaths have occurred across the country, and in Devon, up to 18 April.  Sidmouth Town has the largest recorded number in East Devon (5) – below is a summary with caveats, go on-line for the details and map.|

A new map shows the true number of people from Devon who have died from coronavirus.

The interactive map, which you can view below [go online], means you are able to see exactly where a person lived, who had COVID-19 mentioned as the underlying cause on the death certificate, or as a contributory factor.

The Pennsylvania and University area in Exeter has the most deaths recorded, with a total of six people from that area having died from coronavirus.

The map only includes deaths that occurred between 1 March 2020 and 17 April 2020 and registered by 18 April 2020 and points on the map are placed at the centre of the local area they represent and do not show the actual location of deaths and the size of the circle is proportional to the number of deaths.

People who die at a Devon hospital could live elsewhere, or a person from the county may have died at another hospital in the country.

You can use the widget above to look at the map – or find your area in the list below.

The map shows a stark contrast between the South West and the rest of the UK.
