Lowest increase in Bucks coronavirus deaths since lockdown began

Buckinghamshire has seen the lowest weekly increase in coronavirus-related deaths since March.

Deaths with the virus here now stand at 383, up by two on last week's numbers.

The last time we saw that was just before lockdown, in the week ending 15th March.

It means we've seen three weeks of single-figure rises in fatalities: seven last week and five the week before that.

These numbers are for deaths up until 19th June, but registered up until 27th June.

So far in 2020 in Buckinghamshire:

  • 216 have died in hospital - up by 2 on the week before
  • 151 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'

We have seen several days without any new deaths at Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust hosptials.

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.

Overall in Buckinghamshire this year, 2,896 people have died.

This means 13.2% of deaths registered in 2020 have Covid-19 on the death certificate.
