This is the map that shows how many coronavirus deaths there have been in your postcode area since March.

The map, released by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) on Friday, shows the number of COVID-19 deaths in each area in England and Wales between 1 March and 31 July that were registered by 15 August.

It also provides a stark nationwide picture of how the death toll peaked in April, before gradually falling in the following months.

The ONS has said the map will not be updated in future, with the death rate now at “low numbers”. Twelve UK coronavirus deaths were reported by the Department of Health on Thursday, compared to a peak of 1,166 on 21 April.

Figures from the same ONS release show that of the 336 local authority areas in England and Wales, 71 had no coronavirus-related deaths in July.

A further 239 recorded fewer than 10 deaths involving COVID-19.

Meanwhile, four areas of Kent were among the five local authority areas with the highest coronavirus mortality rates in England in July.

Gravesham had a rate of 13.5, Dartford at 11.8 and Folkestone and Hythe at 8.9.

The government later announced coronavirus lockdown restrictions will be lifted in parts of Greater Manchester, Lancashire and west Yorkshire after the number of new infections fell.

The Department of Health said “positive progress” means that from 2 September, two households can mix again in areas including Bolton, Stockport, Trafford, Hyndburn and Burnley.

The move will also impact parts of Bradford excluding Bradford city and Keighley town, parts of Calderdale excluding Halifax, and parts of Kirklees excluding Dewsbury and Batley.
