FOR the third week in a row, there were no coronavirus related deaths in the entire county, in the latest week for which data has been made available.

The latest Office of National Statistics (ONS) figures show there were no Covid-19 deaths of any county residents in any settings including hospital, care homes, a hospice, community establishment and elsewhere in the week ending August 28.

As there were no deaths this means that ONS data shows that in total 529 Worcestershire people, classed as having Covid-19, had died up to August 21.

They include:

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

115 Wyre Forest residents; 65 in hospital, 39 in a care home, nine at home and two in a communal establishment.

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

63 people from Worcester; 29 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.

47 people from Malvern; 24 in hospital, 20 in a care home, two at home and one in a communal establishment.

Last Thursday, we reported there had been the first coronavirus-related death at Worcestershire's hospitals - the first one in over a month.

There have been no hospitals deaths, reported by the NHS, since.

This means that in total there have now been 279 deaths in the trust's hospitals along with 28 in the Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust, which manages the county's community hospitals.

In total there have now been 307 deaths in hospitals in Worcestershire from coronavirus and in all settings, there have been at least 530 county deaths up to September 9.
