  • Some 9,039 of the deaths occurred within a care home and 27% were in hospital

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) announced Friday that over a quarter of care home residents' deaths in England and Wales involved COVID-19 since the beginning of the novel coronavirus pandemic.

"For female care home residents, it was the second-leading cause, accounting for 23.5% of all deaths".

"The government has also produced data which not only shows that there has been, as I say, a bad epidemic in care homes but since the care homes action plan began we're are seeing an appreciable and substantial reduction not just in the number of outbreaks but also in the number of deaths".

Researchers from the charity said that the key reasons for excess deaths among older people who are care home residents will be: under-diagnosed Covid-19 deaths (not recognised because of a lack of testing, symptoms showing differently in very old/frail people, lack of access to health care) and deaths from other causes because of a lack of access to timely health care.

In addition, the ONS figures showed that COVID-19 was the leading cause of death in male care home residents in the period, covering 30.3 percent of deaths.

Among these 12,526 deaths, 9,039 (72 per cent) occurred within a care home.

The total number of coronavirus-related United Kingdom deaths stands at 34,466.

The remaining 89% had at least one underlying health issue, with the most common main condition being dementia and Alzheimer's disease.

The ONS figures show that since March there has been an increase both in deaths involving Covid-19 and those not involving Covid-19 among care home residents.

"However, deaths within care homes increased more rapidly, and deaths within care homes became more prevalent from the start of April 2020".

This was followed by ischaemic heart diseases (3,647 Covid-19 deaths or 10.8% of the total), and flu and pneumonia (3,581 deaths, or 10.6%).

The ONS figures differ greatly from those released by the government on a daily basis, mainly because they report the deaths in a different way.
