The total of number of Covid-related deaths in Berkshire since the pandemic began shows an affluent area of the county has one of the highest figures.

South Ascot and Sunningdale, where houses sell on average by more than £1 million, has recorded 24 deaths.

And a small area of West Berkshire, which historically has consistently recorded some of the lowest infection rates for the virus, has the highest amount of coronavirus-related deaths in the whole county.

An interactive map shows the amount of people who have died after testing positive for the virus since the start of the pandemic in 2020.

The figures show 30 people have lost their lives in the Thatcham Town neighbourhood since the start of the pandemic, which is the highest in Berkshire.

This is despite West Berkshire itself historically having among the lowest infection rates for the virus.

The second highest area is Wokingham West and South, which has recorded 27 Covid-related deaths since the start of the pandemic.

In Coley Park, one of Reading’s more deprived areas, there have been 26 deaths after positive tests.

However, some of the highest Covid-related deaths can also be found in one of Berkshire’s most affluent areas. The figures show 24 people have died in South Ascot and Sunningdale.

In terms of the lowest rate, Woodley East has seen just one person died after testing positive.

Caversham Heights has also just the one death.

Reading Central has just two deaths, as has Calcot South in West Berkshire.

In the east of the county, Windsor Town and Eton has seen two people die.

The Bracknell Forest areas of Priestwood and Winkfield and Cranbourne have also seen two deaths each.

The news comes as the infection across the whole of Berkshire continues to fall.

Rates in two Berkshire areas are now considerably below 100 cases per 100,000 people and it is likely other parts will soon be below that rate too as the ongoing lockdown measure and vaccination programme continue.
