The coronavirus mortality rate in north-west England was more than twice that in London in June

The map, using office data for national statistics, shows that one out of 20 deaths in the capital in the past month was caused by Covid-19, compared to an astonishing two at the peak of the April crisis.

In the northwest, where multiple cities in Lancashire are being screened for potential local closures in increasing cases, every eighth death was attributed to the virus in June, more than one in three at its peak.

Although London appears to have switched off the virus, it still has the highest Covid 19 mortality rate of any area in the UK as it was hit hard by the disease at the start of the crisis.

The capital recorded 141.8 Covid-19 deaths per 100,000 people between March and June, well above the 88 deaths per 100,000 people in England and Wales.

Middlesbrough (178 deaths per 100,000), Hertsmere in Hertfordshire (166.7) and Salford, Manchester (166.2) suffered the three highest death rates outside of London as the epidemic continues to bomb the north.
