A total of 995 deaths registered in England and Wales in the week ending November 5 mentioned Covid-19 on the death certificate, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

This is the highest number since the week to March 12 during the 2021 national lockdown, when 1,501 coronavirus deaths were registered.

Deaths involving the virus have been creeping up over the past four weeks, but remain significantly lower than those registered last winter during the second wave.

At its peak, some 8,433 deaths involving coronavirus were registered in the week up to January 22.

Here are the number of new deaths in every Derbyshire district, based on deaths per 100,000 people, in the month to November 7.
