Seven more coronavirus-related deaths confirmed in Bucks

Seven more people have passed away with coronavirus in Buckinghamshire.

Deaths with the virus here now stand at 381, according to figures for deaths up until 12th June.

Last week we saw a rise of just five, whilst this week the number rose by seven.

It still means two weeks of single-figure increases, with the previous three weeks seeing increases of 10, 21 and 22.

So far in 2020 in Buckinghamshire:

  • 214 have died in hospital - up by 6 on the week before
  • 150 care home residents have been lost
  • 2 deaths happened in a hospice 
  • 11 people passed away at home
  • 3 deaths happened in 'other communal establishments' - up by 1 after several weeks of no change

These figures are for deaths up until 12th June but registered up until 20th.

These numbers, particularly hospital deaths, differ to those we get each day, as those are from hospital trust, whilst the ONS are for local authority level.

A change in reporting for Bucks

Where we were getting district-level stats, the ONS have now caught up with the local authority changes.

This means the four lots of data we were getting (Aylesbury Vale, Wycombe, Chiltern & South Bucks) have been combined so we can only see Buckinghamshire as a whole.

Overall in Buckinghamshire this year, 2,436 people have died.

This means 15.6% of deaths registered in 2020 have Covid-19 on the death certificate.
