LATEST data shows nearly 500 Worcestershire residents - with Covid-19 mentioned on the death certificate - had died in all settings up to June 5, according to latest Office of National Statistics (ONS) data.

The figures cover people who died from Covid-19 and the local authority area in which they lived, and provide information on deaths outside of county hospitals.

The latest data, covering the week May 29 to June 5, shows:

Nine people died in hospital; five from Wychavon, one from Wyre Forest, one from Redditch, one Malvern Hills resident and one from Bromsgrove.

Six people died in a care home; four from Bromsgrove and two from Worcester.

And one person, from Worcester, died in a communal establishment.

During that week there were no Covid-19 related deaths at home, in hospice, or elsewhere.

Some of the deaths are ones previously not reported on as the daily regional figure from the NHS is only people dying of Covid-19 at county hospitals.

The total across all settings that week, 16, is actually up on the 14 of the previous week, but is in the general trend of coming down compared to, for example, six weeks earlier - between April 17 and April 24 - when 98 county people died across all settings.

The latest ONS figures reveal 498 Worcestershire people, classed as having Covid-19, had died up to June 5.

They include:

128 people from Bromsgrove; 72 in hospital, 51 in a care home, four elsewhere and one in a communal establishment.

111 from Wyre Forest; 62 in hospital, 39 in a care home, eight at home and two in a communal establishment.

101 from Wychavon; 46 in a care home, 44 in hospital, four at home, four in a communal establishment, two in a hospice and one elsewhere.

58 Worcester residents; 26 in hospital, 26 in a care home, three at home, two in a communal establishment and one in a hospice.

55 people from Redditch; 45 in hospital, eight in a care home, one at home and one in a communal establishment.

45 people from Malvern Hills; 23 in hospital, 19 in a care home, two at home and one in a communal establishment.
