When the peak of coronavirus death appears to have occurred in Greater Manchester

The number of coronavirus deaths in Greater Manchester peaked in mid-April – eight days after the rest of England, new data revealed.

A total of 65 people died in hospitals across the region on Thursday April 16, which appears to be the peak.

Since then the death toll has fallen in hospital foundations across the city.

A total of 1,191 people have died of coronaviruses in hospitals in the region so far according to NHS England data.

However, there may be a new spike at any time.



The number of coronavirus deaths in Greater Manchester appears to have peaked on Thursday 16 April

The peak across England was on April 8 when 857 people died in the country’s hospitals, according to NHS England.

The NHS figures only take into account Covid-19 deaths in hospitals.

The total number of deaths caused by coronavirus is probably much higher.

The peak in Greater Manchester was not immediately visible due to the delay in reporting.

And it is possible that the numbers can go up.

So far Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust has recorded the highest number of coronavirus deaths with 320.



The peak days for every trust

The NHS Foundation Trust of the University of Manchester registered 245, while the Bolton NHS Foundation Trust recorded 149 deaths from Covid-19.

The death toll in these hospitals is still relatively high.

Deaths in nursing homes and people’s homes – counted as “in the community” – are not recorded in these figures.

Instead they are published by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) several days later.

On Tuesday, April 21, the ONS stated that over 1,000 people died in nursing homes that contracted the virus nationwide.

In the week leading up to April 10, 116 nursing home residents died with coronavirus in our region.

Salford saw most deaths occur in nursing homes, with 46 out of 130 – one of the highest proportions in England and Wales.

In Stockport 15 people died in nursing homes and there were also 10 deaths in nursing homes in Manchester, nine in Bolton and eight in Oldham.
