Coronavirus deaths in England and Wales are at the lowest level since before lockdown began in late March, figures show.

The number of people dying from the virus has dropped drastically, with fatalities now around the same as they were 19 weeks ago.

New figures reveal:

The number of deaths recorded in care homes and hospitals has dropped below the average for this time of year

– A total of 8,946 deaths were registered in England and Wales in the week ending July 31 – 90 fewer than the five-year average of 9,036

– It’s the seventh week running that deaths have been below the five-year average

– Of the deaths registered in the week to July 31, 193 mentioned Covid-19 on the death certificate

– That means it’s the lowest number of deaths involving Covid-19 since the week ending March 20, when there were 103 deaths
