Haddenham worst-hit Vale area for coronavirus-related deaths

Some parts of Aylesbury have seen fewer than five deaths with coronavirus.

An updated map has given us a picture of the impact of the illness in our communities.

Sadly it seems Haddenham and nearby villages have had the highest death toll from Covid-19.

Since we last got a look at local data, 11 more have passed away there - with the total now at 20.

What does the data show?

These numbers are for between March and the end of May.

Stoke Mandeville and Aston Clinton have lost 12 people, whilst Berryfields and Haydon Hill have seen 11 coronavirus-related deaths.

But other parts of Aylesbury, like Watermead, the town centre and Southcourt have all seen less than five.

Further afield, Risborough have lost eight in their community and Wendover, nine.

For this period (March-May) the mortality rate for Covid-19 in Bucks was at 14.6 per 100,000 people.

This data comes as we have seen a slowdown in the weekly rise in coronavirus-related deaths in Buckinghamshire.

In the latest update from the Office for National Statistics, we saw five more people had died, compared to rises of 10, 21 and 22 in previous week.

The national picture

Sarah Caul, Head of Mortality Analysis, Office for National Statistics, said:

“Although London had some of the highest COVID-19 mortality rates in the country during March and April, it is now experiencing lower mortality rates compared with most areas.

"During May, the region with the highest age-adjusted COVID-19 mortality rate was the North East, where the rate was double that of London. The South West region continued to have the lowest mortality rate overall and during each of the last three months.

“Meanwhile, people living in more deprived areas have continued to experience COVID-19 mortality rates more than double those living in less deprived areas. General mortality rates are normally higher in more deprived areas, but COVID-19 appears to be increasing this effect.”
