XPS COVID-19 Weekly Tracker

The graph below shows the number of deaths in each week for England, Wales and Scotland and allows you to create your own chart by sex, age group, region and COVID-19 and non-COVID-19 related deaths. Each selection can be compared to historical data such as the number of deaths in that week in 2019 or the five year average to 2019. Hovering over a point on a bar or line will provide the figure for that particular group.
