A map of England and Wales by postcode shows hundreds of places that have not recorded a coronavirus fatality.

The Office of National Statistics map shows how large areas of Wales and the south west have managed to avoid any deaths in the time period analysed, as well as three areas of London.

You can use the postcode search below to find out how your area is doing, although there is a time lag on deaths due to the time they take to record and analyse.

The map shows details of deaths between March 1 and April 17.

In central London, Lambeth North, neighbouring Borough and Southwark Street, and Acton have not recorded a death, even though the highest rates of deaths involving Covid-19 were in London.

Aside from in London, death rates were high in the cities of Liverpool, Birmingham and Manchester.

A few other local authorities including Hertsmere, Salford, Watford, Middlesbrough, Luton, Sandwell and Slough also had rates above 65 deaths per 100,000 people.

The area with the highest overall age-standardised mortality rate involving Covid-19 in England and Wales was Newham, with a rate of 144.3 deaths per 100,000 population.

That was followed by Brent with a rate of 141.5 deaths per 100,000 population and Hackney with a rate of 127.4 deaths per 100,000 population.

The UK’s coronavirus death toll passed 28,000 yesterday after another 621 died.

Communities secretary Robert Jenrick gave an update on the figures at the daily briefing today, saying the total number of lives lost is now 28,131.

The updated total includes deaths in care homes and the wider community, which the department of health began including in the daily figures amid concern that care homes represented a significant hidden death toll.

The UK’s total is now the third highest in the world, after the USA and Italy.
