Coronavirus deaths in Lancs fall to 13 in a week – the lowest since March

Written by on July 15, 2020

Coronavirus-related deaths in Lancashire are continuing to fall, according to new figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

In the week ending July 3, 13 people died Covid-19-related deaths in Lancashire (including Blackburn with Darwen and Blackpool).

That was down from 19 the week before.

The numbers for the week ending July 3 include nine deaths in hospitals, a fall from 16 a week before, and two deaths in care homes, down from three.

The ONS figures, released yesterday (July 14), are based on the number of deaths registered up to July 11, where Covid-19 is mentioned on the death certificate.

Overall, there have been 1,219 deaths across Lancashire involving Covid-19 between the start of the outbreak and July 3.

Of those deaths, most (872) took place in hospital, with 279 in care homes.

There were also 42 deaths recorded at home, 25 in hospices, and one in other communal establishments.

Other communal establishments include prisons, halls of residence, hotels, and sheltered accommodation.

Separate figures from the Care Quality Commission (CQC), show three deaths involving coronavirus in care homes in Lancashire (including Blackburn with Darwen and Blackpool) in the week ending July 10.

That was up from none the week before.

Notifications about deaths in care homes are typically provided to the CQC within two to three days of death and are included based on the statement from the care home provider, so the person who died may not have had a medical diagnosis or a test result and Covid-19 may not have been mentioned on the death certificate.

The figures published this morning show a total of 268 Covid-19 related deaths were notified to the CQC by care homes between April 10 and July 10.

Up to July 3, there had been 55,071 deaths registered across the UK with Covid-19 on the death certificate.

That included 47,608 deaths in England, 4,173 in Scotland, 2,455 in Wales, and 835 in Northern Ireland.

Of the deaths registered in the week ending July 3, 532 mentioned Covid-19, the lowest number of deaths involving Covid-19 in the past 15 weeks.

Overall, the number of deaths registered in England and Wales in the week ending July 3 was 9,140 – 161 higher than the week before but 0.5% (43 deaths) lower than the five-year average.

This is the third consecutive week that deaths have been below the five-year average.

The numbers of deaths in care homes and hospitals were also fewer than the five-year average (88 and 634 deaths lower respectively), while the number of deaths in private homes was 755 higher than the five-year average.
