The Office of National Statistics (ONS) have released data for all deaths during the week ending 3 April 2020.

This is data for all deaths, both within a hospital and in the community.

The statistics show a leap in deaths when compared to the five-year average data and a leap in the number of deaths that mention as a cause.

  • Deaths for week ending 3 April 2020 (Week 14) was 16,387
  • 6,082 more than the five-year average for that week
  • An increase of 5,246 deaths registered compared with the previous week (Week 13)
  • 3,475 mentioned “novel (COVID-19)” (539 week before)
  • 21.2% of all deaths (4.8% week before)

A death is attributed to COVID-19 if it is suspected and even if there is another underlying condition.

The latest comparable data for deaths involving COVID-19 with a date of death up to 3 April, show there were 6,235 deaths in England and Wales.

When looking at data for England, this is 15% higher than the NHS numbers as they include all mentions of COVID-19 on the death certificate, including suspected COVID-19, as well as deaths in the community.

The 16,387 deaths that were registered in England and Wales during the week ending 3 April is the highest weekly total since we started compiling weekly deaths data in 2005.
