THE total number of coronavirus deaths in the Winchester is now 177 and tragically every area of the district has recorded at least one casualty.

An interactive map by the Office for National Statistics shows the number of deaths registered from March to December 2020 where Covid-19 was the main cause on the death certificate.

Neighbourhoods are broken down via Middle layer Super Output Areas (MSOAs), a system designed to improve the reporting of small areas with an average population of 7,200.

With 25 deaths, Denmead and Southwick has suffered the most fatalities in the Winchester district.

It is followed by Winchester West, which includes the prison, with 19, and Oliver’s Battery and Hursley with 17.

Meanwhile, 16 people have died of Covid in Winchester North and Sparsholt, followed by Whiteley, Knowle and Wickham (15) and Bishop’s Waltham and Waltham Chase (14).

At the other end Stanmore has only recorded one death since the start of the pandemic, while Colden Common and Twyford, along South Wonston, Sutton Scotney and Micheldever have been registered four each.

As local data is only available up to December, the numbers of deaths in the map will not reflect the latest trends meaning the impact on the England-wide lockdown will not be seen.

Patterns also do not reflect the most recent case numbers, as a death from the virus will be reported some time after a positive test.
