New data from the Office for National Statistics shows that eighty-eight people have died in Fylde with coronavirus mentioned on their death certificate since the lockdown began.

The worst period was for the week ending 1st May when thirteen people died in Fylde.

These figures account for people living in Fylde in any setting, rather than people at hospitals from other parts of Lancashire.

Overall, there have been 1,196 deaths across Lancashire (including Blackburn with Darwen and Blackpool) involving Covid-19 between the start of the outbreak and June 19. Of those deaths, 852 took place in hospital, with 277 in care homes. There were also 41 deaths recorded at home, 25 in hospices, and one in other communal establishments (e.g. prisons and sheltered accommodation).

In Lancashire, the data shows that coronavirus-related deaths are continuing to fall, as the overall number of deaths in England and Wales returned to the level that would be expected at this time of year.
