The documents below show the number of deaths reported to the LeDeR programme by date of death where the person notifying the death or the person reviewing the death has indicated that COVID-19 is suspected or confirmed as the cause of death. Anyone can notify a death to the programme – a family member, a carer, a friend as well as a clinician who may or may not have given direct clinical care to the person who has died. When the notifier or reviewer suspects that COVID was involved in the person’s death, that may be their own opinion and there may be no COVID-19 test or death certificate to evidence this.

Please note this data has not been checked against death certificates.

We have identified some data quality issues impacting the published data. Whilst the data issues are investigated there will be a delay to the publication of the weekly tables.

Following publication of the LeDeR COVID-19 weekly deaths as at 25 June 2021 we identified an error in the data which led to deaths of people with a learning disability being over reported in some weeks. The easy read and plain English versions of the publication for 25 June 2021 have been removed from the website and updated and corrected figures are available in the latest publication (24 September 2021).

Summary

Data published on the 24 September 2021 contained an error: the last two weeks’ figures were not included in the totals. The current files now contain the correct figures. We apologise for any inconvenience this might have caused.
