If the deaths due to COVID-19 continue to decrease, we intend to reduce this dataset in future publications due to very small numbers in many geographical areas. This decision will be kept under review and reconsidered if the numbers of deaths start to increase. We welcome any feedback on the analysis in this publication via Health.Data@ons.gov.uk.
