The data does reflect the peak being around Easter, with the majority of those passing away in April.

For example in Wendover, where 11 have died, seven of those were that month.

In Berryfields and Haydon Hill, 11 people have passed away. Seven happened in April and four in May.

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

“Following the peak recorded in April, in June we have seen a large decrease in the proportion of deaths involving COVID-19 across all English regions and Wales.

"London experienced the largest decrease over the period from having more than 1 in 2 deaths in April which involved COVID-19 to only about 1 in 20 deaths in June that were related to the coronavirus.

"The South West region continued to have the lowest proportion of COVID-19 deaths in June with about 1 in 30 deaths involving the coronavirus, while the North West had the highest where 1 in 8 deaths in June were COVID-19 related.”

We have seen a big drop in fatalities here in Buckinghamshire and all will be hoping that continues in the coming months.
