Latest figures show the areas of Somerset that have not recorded any Covid deaths since the start of the pandemic.
The figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) reveal the two postcodes in Somerset that have not seen any coronavirus deaths from the virus.
The ONS data uses what are known as middle super output areas (MSOAs), which are similar to postcodes, although some have been combined.
Dunster, Dulverton and Exmoor in West Somerset and Weston Winterstoke in North Somerset are the only places in the county that have recorded no coronavirus deaths.
This is according to the latest official data where Covid-19 was listed as the cause of death in England and Wales since the outbreak of the pandemic.
Of the 7,209 districts across England and Wales, just 36 had not recorded a Covid-linked death by the end of January this year.
This accounts for 0.5 per cent of the 7,209 postcode districts monitored by the ONS.
Several areas in the South West have recorded no Covid-linked deaths so far.
The South West has seen the lowest Covid-19 mortality rate, at 295.6 deaths per 100,000 people.
These ONS figures also stress the disproportionate effect the virus has had on those living in cities compared to rural communities.
The area to suffer the most deaths since the pandemic began was Crabtree and Fir Vale in Sheffield with 72 fatalities, figures show.
January was the second deadliest month on record in England, with 68,796 fatalities from all causes.
January was also the third consecutive month in which coronavirus was the leading cause of death in England, accounting for 37.4 percent of all registered deaths.
This was more than four times the number for the second leading cause of deaths, which was dementia in England and heart disease in Wales.
The deadliest month was April of the last year, during the first wave of the pandemic, when 88,153 people in England died.

These figures follow UK’s Covid alert level being downgraded from five to four.
A Department of Health statement from all four chief medical officers stated that while health services remain “under significant pressure”, they are “consistently declining”.
The statement said: “We should be under no illusions – transmission rates, hospital pressures and deaths are still very high.
“In time, the vaccines will have a major impact and we encourage everyone to get vaccinated when they receive the offer.
“However for the time being it is really important that we all – vaccinated or not – remain vigilant and continue to follow the guidelines.
“We know how difficult the situation has been and remains to be for healthcare workers, we thank them for their immense effort, skill and professionalism throughout the pandemic.”
