Uckfield Covid-19 death toll ticks up

Latest data shows two Wealden people have died where Covid-19 was a factor.

The deaths were in the week to April 16 and bring the total in the district this year to 249.

There were 180 deaths in 2020.

From now, our weekly reporting of deaths will become monthly, along with infections data.

We have taken this step due to the low levels of Coronavirus in Uckfield.

We will, of course, maintain our datasets and bring you news at once if we detect any upward trends.
