Coronavirus: New interactive map shows how many people have died with Covid-19 in Haverhill and the surrounding villages

The total number of people to have died with Covid-19 in Haverhill and neighbouring communities over a four month period has been revealed.

A new map from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) has this week shown how many Covid-19 related deaths there have been, by area, in between March 1 and June 30, and registered by July 11.

The map details deaths involving Covid-19 by ‘Middle Layer Super Output Areas’ – small areas, each with a similarly-sized population of about 7,000 – while the size of the circle for each area represents the number of deaths.

In all cases coronavirus (Covid-19) was the underlying cause or was mentioned on the death certificate as a contributory factor.

These areas do not correspond to the boundaries of the different ward divisions at the district councils in which they fall.

On May 1, ONS figures revealed that there had been four deaths in Haverhill.
