THE Office for National Statistics (ONS) has released a map featuring data which shows the number of deaths due to Covid-19.

Residents of each area are able to use the interactive map to find out how many deaths in their area were registered in the period from March 2020 to January 2021 where Covid-19 was the underlying (main) cause on the death certificate.

The map, which is split into Middle Layer Super Output Areas (MSOA), shows a total of 20 deaths in Oswestry were caused by Covid-19, with seven in Oswestry West and 13 in Oswestry East.

In the area of Gobowen, St Martins and Weston Rhyn, 12 deaths were registered, while there were 10 in the region of Chirk and the Ceiriog Valley.

Nine deaths were recorded in Trefonen and Pant, and six in Ruyton XI Towns, West Felton and Whittington.

There were five deaths in Ellesmere and also five in Baschurch, Harmer Hill and Cockshutt.

Data for deaths recorded in February will be added to the map on March 18.
