THERE were five deaths in all settings in the county in the latest week for which data has been made available.

The latest Office of National Statistics (ONS) all settings figures shows the five deaths - with Covid-19 mentioned on the death certificate - included a Worcester resident in hospital and a Wychavon resident also in hospital.

The figures, which are for the week up to October 9, also show deaths of three people from Wyre Forest - two in hospital and one elsewhere.

This means ONS data now shows that, in total, 538 Worcestershire people, classed as having Covid-19, had died up to that date.

They include:

134 Bromsgrove residents; 75 in hospital, 54 in a care home, four elsewhere and one in a communal establishment.

120 Wyre Forest residents; 69 in hospital, 39 in a care home, nine at home, two in a communal establishment and one elsewhere.

113 Wychavon residents; 52 in hospital, 49 in a care home, five at home, four in a communal establishment, two in a hospice and one elsewhere.

64 people from Worcester; 30 in hospital, 27 in a care home, four at home, two in a communal establishment and one in a hospice.

60 people from Redditch; 49 in hospital, eight in a care home, two at home, and one in a communal establishment.

Meanwhile there were no new Coronavirus related deaths announced in the latest daily figures released by the NHS.

The figures, that relate to recorded deaths up to 4pm on October 19, show Worcestershire Acute Hospitals Trust had remained at 288 deaths and the number of deaths in the Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust had remained at 29 deaths.

This means there has been 317 hospital deaths in total.

And using the ONS data, added to hospital deaths since October 9, this means that up to yesterday (October 20) there have been at least 542 deaths of county residents in all settings.
