More good news on Wealden Covid-19 deaths

Latest Wealden Covid-19 deaths data continues to be encouraging.

For the second successive week, there have been no Covid deaths recorded.

Figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) show there were 39 deaths in total in Wealden from all causes in the seven days to September 18, (the most recent week for which figures are available).

Bleak spring figures

It means that in the last four weeks of published figures, Covid-19 has claimed two lives.

At the peak in the spring, more than 60 died in a four-week period.

Since the pandemic began, deaths involving the coronavirus (Covid-19) stand at 126 in Wealden.

Testing difficulties likely to have skewed Covid-19 case totals


The number of cases in Uckfield area communities is reported over a different period to the Wealden figures, as are some of the seven-day rolling averages. This is due to the timings of data releases.

This website maintains its own datasets to track Covid-19 in Uckfield, surrounding villages and Wealden more generally. Our statistics are generally taken from ONS data and other published Government sources..

We normally report cases each Monday, based on data up to 4pm the previous day, to allow seven-day comparisons to be made. 

We generally update the number of deaths in Wealden on a Wednesday and for Uckfield and surrounding villages on a monthly basis.
