Latest number of coronavirus deaths and confirmed cases in your area

By Harry Leather | Wolverhampton | Coronavirus | Published: | Last Updated:

See the latest figures for coronavirus cases and deaths in your area.

This page will be updated daily with the latest number of people who have tested positive for Covid-19 and the latest number of confirmed hospital deaths in your area.

Care home deaths will be updated when local Office for National Statistics figures are released each week. They have only been recorded since April 10, meaning the full figure is likely to be fare higher.

The figures for positive tests are specific to the local authority area (eg Wolverhampton Council, Sandwell Council, Birmingham City Council).

The true number of cases in each area is likely to be much higher due to the limited amount of testing carried out by the NHS.

Meanwhile the figures for confirmed deaths are broken down by NHS health trusts (the organisations that run our hospitals) such as the Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust.

The national data below includes deaths in and out of hospital, but the local data only refers to those who have died in hospital from figures released by the NHS each day.

Local data for deaths across the community is released by the ONS on a less regular basis.

Where shown, a number in brackets is the change from the previous day. For deaths, this is the daily increase in confirmed deaths and is not the same as the number of people who died in the previous 24 hours (see bottom of page for more on this).

Due to differences in reporting, the figures for individual countries may not add up to the UK total and case and death figures may sometimes decrease due to corrections.

Where is the data from?

The UK and England data is released by the Government each day here.

The Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland figures are released by the relevant health authorities daily.

The number of confirmed cases in each council area is updated daily on the same UK Government page as linked to above.

Staffordshire figures combine cases at both Stoke-on-Trent City Council and Staffordshire County Council.

The hospital death toll is released by NHS England daily here and broken down by health trust:

Separate Sandwell and Birmingham death figures are not available due to the Sandwell and West Birmingham NHS Trust running hospitals in both boroughs.

  • The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust runs New Cross Hospital and Cannock Chase Hospital.
  • The Dudley Group NHS Foundation Trust runs Russells Hall Hospital.
  • The Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust runs Walsall Manor Hospital.
  • The figures for Staffordshire refer to the University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Trust (which runs County Hospital in Stafford and the Royal Stoke University Hospital), the North Staffordshire Combined Healthcare NHS Trust (which runs mental health, social care and learning disability services) and Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation NHS Trust (which runs community hospitals and centres across Staffordshire and Shropshire).
  • The figures for Sandwell and Birmingham are a combination of deaths at Sandwell and West Birmingham NHS Trust (which runs City Hospital and Sandwell General), at University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust (which runs Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Good Hope, Heartlands and Solihull hospitals), at Birmingham Community Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (which runs a variety of community health centres across the West Midlands) and at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Birmingham.
  • The figures for Worcestershire refer to the Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust (which runs Kidderminster Hospital and Treatment Centre, Worcestershire Royal Hospital in Worcester and Alexandra Hospital, Redditch) and Worcester Health and Care NHS Trust (which runs a variety of community hospitals).

Care home death statistics are updated weekly by the Office for National Statistics but have only been recorded since April 10.

Important to note

The hospital death figures released each day do not only refer to patients who have died in the last 24 hours. They refer to the deaths of coronavirus patients confirmed in the last 24 hours. Some patients are only included in the statistics several days later due to testing or discussions with family.

However the charts above refer to the date of death, not the date the death was announced. Thus the figures for individual dates are likely to increase as further deaths are announced.

The patients may not have died solely as a result of coronavirus but all had been confirmed as testing positive and/or had coronavirus listed as a cause of death on their death certificate.

Due to differences in how the figures are compiled by each country's health service, the England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Irish figures may not add up to the same as the UK figure released daily by the Government.
