A breakdown which shows the number of coronavirus-related deaths by each postcode area has been released for the first time since the outbreak began.

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) has recorded every death in England and Wales where Covid-19 has been mentioned on an individual's death certificate.

The deaths, which occurred between March 1 and April 17, have either been caused by Covid-19 or the virus has been a 'contributing factor.'

The information used to produce the statistics is based on details collected when certified deaths are registered with the local registration office.

In England and Wales, deaths should be registered within five days of the death occurring, but there are some situations (such as referral to a coroner) that result in later registration.

Therefore, there may be some deaths involving Covid-19 that occurred in that period that are yet to be registered - meaning they will not be included in this analysis.

This means the true death toll may not be revealed for several months yet.

But to give you a better understanding of how the virus is affecting your area, The Reading Chronicle has analysed and published the postcode area of every Covid-19 related death in our region.
