New map shows Covid death toll in every West Yorkshire neighbourhood

The total number of coronavirus deaths in West Yorkshire is currently just short of 4,000.

And tragically every neighbourhood in the region’s five districts except one has been affected by at least one out of the 3,912 fatalities.

An interactive map produced by the Office for National Statistics shows the number of deaths where Covid-19 was the underlying (main) cause on the death certificate in every neighbourhood in England and Wales.

Each area has a population of around 8,000 and the latest figures cover deaths registered between March to December 2020, meaning that the figures from January and February have not yet been reflected.

With 39 deaths, Ilkley and Ben Rhydding in the Bradford borough suffered the most fatalities in West Yorkshire.

It’s followed by Lady Wood and Oakwood in Leeds (35), Colton, Austhorpe & Whitkirk in Leeds (33) and Fairweather Green in the city of Bradford (33).

Leeds City Centre is the only neighbourhood in the West Yorkshire region where no deaths have occurred.
