New data shows Spalding-area COVID-19 death figures
The Office for National Statistics (ONS) has released an update on the number of people who have died of coronavirus in our area.
The data breakdown shows areas in which confirmed deaths stated that COVID-19 was the underlying cause or was mentioned on the death certificate as a contributory factor.
There were 72 deaths in our area, which occurred between 1 March 2020 and 30 June 2020 and were registered by 11 July 2020.
The figures, which are listed under geographical statistical areas, show that Spalding South West and the Long Sutton East and Sutton Bridge area both saw 13 deaths during the period (total: 26).
Kirton, Frampton and Algarkirk recorded ten deaths while eight deaths were seen across Donington, Quadring and Gosberton.
Six deaths were recorded in Swineshead, Bicker and Holland Fen.
The data shows that across Pinchbeck and Deeping St Nicholas five deaths were recorded and Spalding North saw four.
Three deaths were recorded in the Long Sutton West, Gedney and Holbeach Hurn area.
There were also three deaths recorded across Fleet Hargate and Holbeach St Johns, according to the ONS figures.
The Moulton, Weston and Whaplode area recorded three deaths while Holbeach saw two deaths during the period.
Both the Crowland and Cowbit area and Spalding East recording one death each (total: 2).
The ONS states that, in order to protect confidentiality, a small number of deaths have been reallocated between neighbouring areas.
Due to the method used for this, figures for some areas may be different to previously published data.
