Breaking News ! No excess deaths have been recorded in England and Wales for first time since lockdown. The latest available data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) shows that the overall number of weekly registered deaths fell below the five-year average for the first time since the week ending March 13. 'Excess deaths' refers to the number of additional deaths when compared to the average number of deaths over five years for the same period. This means the total number of excess deaths in the UK between March 21 and June 12 this year remains at last week's figure of 65,101. There were 65 fewer deaths registered in the week ending June 19 – 0.7% below the average number of deaths for this period over five years. In both hospitals and care homes the number of deaths fell below the average, with 782 and 49 fewer deaths respectively.

The total includes new figures published on Tuesday by the Office for National Statistics, which show that 49,610 deaths involving Covid-19 had occurred in England and Wales up to June 19 (and had been registered by June 27).
Figures published last week by the National Records for Scotland showed that 4,119 deaths involving Covid-19 had been registered in Scotland up to June 21. The latest figures from the Northern Ireland Statistics and Research Agency, also published last week, showed 816 deaths involving Covid-19 had occurred in Northern Ireland up to June 19 (and had been registered up to June 24). Together these figures mean that so far 54,545 deaths have been registered in the UK where Covid-19 was mentioned on the death certificate, including suspected cases. This is significantly higher than the daily figures released by the Department of Health which yesterday (June 29) stood at 43,575.
