A MAP which shows the number of deaths by postcode area has revealed a stark drop in deaths in the worst affected areas.

The Office for National Statistics figures are based on all deaths where Covid-19 was mentioned on the death certificate and which had been registered by August 15.

There were 90.2 deaths per 100,000 people that involved Covid-19 in England and Wales over the five month period.

But this dramatically lowered during the summer from a peak of 53.4 per 100,000 during April to just 1.8 in July.

What did the data show in the worst affected areas of Bradford?

Areas such as Manningham & Lister Park saw a peak of 14 deaths in April but in the month of June had no deaths.

Similar areas which had suffered a high amount of deaths also reported a drop and generally peaked in the months of April and May.
