Over 300 coronavirus-related deaths in Bucks

316 people are now known to have died with coronavirus in Buckinghamshire.

27 more fatalities were added to the list of people who lost their lives up until 8th May.

Some were not registered until last week, which leads to the delay in reporting.

So far in 2020 in Buckinghamshire:

  • 178 have died in hospital
  • 124 care home residents have been lost
  • 2 deaths happened in a hospice
  • 9 people passed away at home
  • 3 deaths happened in 'other communal establishments'

Some of these stats differ compared to previously released numbers, which the Office for National Statistics says is 'due to improvements in the way we code place of death'.

How do the districts compare?
