MORE than 200 Worcestershire residents have died from coronavirus, according to the latest figures.

The figures, released by the Office of National Statistics (ONS), show that in total 226 Worcestershire residents had died - with Covid-19 mentioned on the death certificate - up to April 17.

The ONS data provides information for people who died from Covid-19 - and the local authority area in which they lived. Some of the deaths are ones previously not reported on, as the daily figure released by the NHS is only people dying of Covid-19 at county hospitals, including community hospitals.

The new ONS figures go up to April 17. It shows in the week between April 10 and April 17:

● 46 people died in hospital; 15 from Bromsgrove, nine from Wyre Forest, six from Wychavon, six from Malvern Hills, five from Worcester and five from Redditch.

● 31 county residents died in a care home; 10 from Wychavon, eight from Bromsgrove, six Malvern Hills residents, five from Wyre Forest, one from Worcester and one from Redditch.

● Two people died at home; one from Wychavon and one from Worcester.

● And two people from Wychavon died at a communal establishment, and a further one from that area died at a place listed as ‘elsewhere’.
