Not surprisingly, the majority of deaths from Covid-19 occur in cities with large populations and in cities that are part of the main transportation routes.
However, the map shows that three areas of London, which are home to more than half of the deaths from British coronaviruses, have yet to experience a single death during the epidemic.
North Action, Lambeth North and Borough and Southwark Street are the parts of the capital that have remained unharmed.
In the Southwest, 24 cities in Cornwall have had no deaths while the county itself has seen 14 people die for 100,000.
Yesterday, 621 other people died of Covid-19 in Great Britain, making 28,131 dead, which means that the country it intended to overtake Italy (28236) was the second most affected country in the world behind the United States (65173).
According to medical experts, the UK epidemic is two weeks behind Italy’s daily mortality rate, while our infection rate is decreasing at a slower rate.
The interactive map shows that at least 23 local authorities in eastern England have not recorded any deaths from the coronavirus – which started in China late last year and has now swept the world.
Nine towns and villages in County Conwy in Wales, 10 in Gwynedd and Ceredigion and seven in Pembrokeshire have suffered no deaths.
New Forest National Park in Hampshire and Dorset regions also did not record any deaths during the pandemic.
Importantly, the data is based on 20,283 deaths in England and Wales from March 1 to April 17, which means that thousands of cases were not included.
The most affected area behind London is the West Midlands which has a death rate of 43.2 per 100,000.
This comes as Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick said yesterday he wanted to see “the most vulnerable in society” supported during the foreclosure of a new £ 76 million fund.
Speaking at the Downing Street press conference, he spoke directly to victims of domestic violence, saying, “You are not alone, you do not have to stay at home, you can and should leave the house if you are in danger. “
And Mr. Jenrick said he wanted the victims to be able to leave a dangerous home if and when necessary.
The number of deaths from coronaviruses in the UK increases to 28,250

The final dates have not yet been officially announced, however, Jenrick said no date for returning students to school has been set.
