Thank you for your enquiry.

The Deaths involving COVID-19 by local area and socioeconomic deprivation: deaths occurring between 1 March and 17 April 2020 publication provides COVID-19 deaths by Middle Super Output Area, where you can search by postcode.  This is the lowest level of geography available. The next update is provisionally scheduled to be published on 12 June. We do not publish age at this level owing to the small numbers involved, which could be disclosive. Section 39 of the Statistics and Registration Service Act 2007 (SRSA) renders it an offence to disclose information held by the Statistics Board that would identify an individual or body corporate. This includes individuals that are deceased.

Our Death registrations and occurrences by local authority and health board weekly publication shows COVID-19 deaths by local authority level. This is updated every Tuesday. We also do not publish age at this level owing to the small numbers involved in line with our disclosure policy and laws stated above.
