AN interactive map has shown how many people have died with Covid in each area of Tendring.

It allows you to see the number of deaths registered in the period March to December 2020, where Covid was the underlying (main) cause on the death certificate.

The number of deaths at the district's hospitals is now 46 in total, 19 at Clacton and 27 at Dovercourt, although many patients from the district will travel to Colchester Hospital.

Daily death counts are revised each day, with each case backdated to the actual date of death.

This means some of the deaths that were first recorded in the latest period may actually have taken place days earlier.

NHS England guidance states: "Confirmation of Covid diagnosis, death notification and reporting in central figures can take up to several days and the hospitals providing the data are under significant operational pressure."

Only deaths that occur in hospitals where the patient has tested positive for Covid are recorded, with deaths in the community excluded, such as those in care homes.
