Coronavirus: West Norfolk neighbourhoods with most deaths according to new map
A new map from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) shows how many coronavirus deaths there have been, by area in West Norfolk, between March and June.
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 our part of Norfolk, the number of deaths per area range from 24 in Swaffham and 14 in Downham Market, to three in Stoke Ferry, Hilgay and Wimbotsham; Walsingham and Raynham; and Watlington, Wiggenhall and Terrington St John, and just one in Dereham West, Necton and Gressenhall.
The ONS data used to create this map states that there were 142 deaths involving Covid-19 reported in West Norfolk between March and June.
