Screenshot 2020-05-03 at 17.16.42

AN interactive map which reveals coronavirus deaths by postcode shows that people living in the poorest parts of England and Wales are dying at more than double the rate of those in affluent areas.

The map, included in the latest Office for National Statistics report, found that the most deprived regions suffered 55 deaths per 100,000 people, compared to 25 fatalities in the wealthiest areas.

Thurrock has registered 46 deaths per 100,000.

The highest age-standardised mortality rate was in Newham, with 144.3 deaths per 100,000 population, followed by Brent with 141.5 deaths per 100,000 population and Hackney 127.4 deaths per 100,000 population.

The report analysed 20,283 virus deaths registered in England and Wales from March 1 to April 17, which means it is two weeks out of date and thousands of fatalities have not been included.

Naturally, statistics such as these, beg more questions than answers. Looking at the figures below, you wonder if deaths in care homes have been included?
