Coronavirus deaths in the UK are amongst the highest in Europe, with a total of 28,131 rivalling those in Italy. Several hotspots have sprung up all over the country, but some areas have survived virtually untouched.

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) has produced an interactive map of coronavirus cases in the UK.

The executive office has compiled information which shows where cases have bloomed, and those which have so far managed to avoid epidemic levels of infections.

The vast majority of cases have clung to the UK’s metropolitan areas, such as London, Birmingham, Manchester and Leeds.

There, average caseloads number in their thousands, with London approaching nearly 20,000 in total.

Death rates range from roughly 50 to 80 per 100,000 people, but the ONS has revealed some areas have avoided deaths altogether.

Certain more remote regions of the country, many of which lie on the coast, have successfully navigated the crisis without a mortality rate.

The map shows at least 23 death-less authorities in the east of England, and a collection of other areas in the country.

Surprisingly, several parts of London are still unscathed from the virus, with zero deaths in Lambeth North, North Acton, and Borough and Southwark Street.

A further 24 towns in Cornwall, one of the safest counties so far, and another 10 in Conwy in Wales have also reported no deaths.

The ONS data includes figures from March 1 to April 17 this year, so doesn’t necessarily provide the whole picture.

Total fatality figures for the UK have seen the country on track to reach the worst in Europe, as other countries start to relax lockdown measures.

The UK’s 28,131 deaths is a shade off Italy’s 28,710, making it the second-worst affected in the world behind the US, and worst in Europe.

Britain is supposedly two weeks behind Italy in its course of COVID-19, making it on track to experience a higher toll once deaths start to fall sustainably.

Yesterday, UK officials reported a total of 621 new deaths, while Italy reported 474.

The Italian figures included a tally of cases from last month, however, making the actual death toll potentially much lower.

The country is now nearing its second phase of coronavirus measures, which will see the government allow people to visit close family members.

In the UK, Boris Johnson said he would announce a lockdown exit “road map” next week, as he insisted the UK has “passed the peak” of infections.

The “comprehensive plan” would see primary schools prioritised and opened, so parents have the freedom to return to work.

Business secretary Alok Sharma will eventually put forward a “workplace by workplace” plan to get the UK back to work.

However, scientists and health professionals have urged caution, as UK Chief Medical Officer Professor Chris Whitty said lifting the lockdown too early would result in a more severe second outbreak.
