A map has revealed how many coronavirus deaths there have been in areas across Waltham Forest and Redbridge.

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) has analysed the 20,208 coronavirus related deaths in England and Wales between March 1 - April 17.

Figures published ONS differ from the government's as they are based on deaths where confirmed or suspected Covid-19 was mentioned on the death certificate, rather than only deaths preceded by a positive test.

The map released by ONS shows the number of registered deaths, as of April 18, broken down by the ONS’ ‘Middle Layer Supper Output Areas’ (MSOA) - a geospatial statistical unit used to facilitate the reporting of small area statistics.

Waltham Forest, with a population of 276,700 (as of 2018), had a Covid-19 death rate of 93 per 100,000 people over the 48-day period.

Redbridge – population 303,858 – had a death rate of 83.

Local authorities across London averaged 86 deaths per 100,000 with the highest rate, 144, recorded in Newham.

The average across England and Wales was 36.2.

Covid-19 deaths in Waltham Forest:

The data shows there were 151 Covid-19 related deaths across Waltham Forest’s 28 MSOA.

Chingford East has had 17 deaths, this highest for any area in the borough, while the William Morris area and Leyton East have both record the lowest amounts of deaths, two.

In Larkswood and Baker’s Arms there were 12 confirmed deaths and in Chingford Green West there were ten.

Covid-19 deaths in Redbridge:

The data shows there were 147 deaths involving coronavirus across Redbridge’s 33 MSOA.

The highest number of deaths, 15, occurred in Chadwell Heath West, followed by 11 in Woodford Wells and Fairlop.

Both Loxford Park and Barkingside East recorded zero deaths with only one death in Seven Kings Meads Lane and Wanstead.

Nationally, the data found that people living in the most deprived areas of England experienced coronavirus mortality rates more than double those living in the least deprived areas.

For those deaths involving Covid-19 that took place between March 1 and April 17, the mortality rate in the most deprived areas was 55.1 deaths per 100,000 population.

By contrast, the rate was 25.3 deaths per 100,000 in the least deprived areas.

The data by the ONS also shows the Covid-19 mortality rate in the most deprived areas of England has been higher among men (76.7 deaths per 100,000 population) than women (39.6).

Nick Stripe, ONS head of health analysis, said: “By mid-April, the region with the highest proportion of deaths involving Covid-19 was London, with the virus being involved in more than four in ten deaths since the start of March.

“The 11 local authorities with the highest mortality rates were all London boroughs, with Newham, Brent and Hackney suffering the highest rates of Covid-19 related deaths.

“People living in more deprived areas have experienced Covid-19 mortality rates more than double those living in less deprived areas. General mortality rates are normally higher in more deprived areas, but so far Covid-19 appears to be taking them higher still."
