At least 26,000 more people than usual have died at home during the coronavirus pandemic in England and Wales potentially because they couldn't or didn't want to go to hospital, according to official statistics.

Between March 20, the week lockdown started, and September 11, a total of 86,000 people died in private homes rather than in hospitals or care homes, an Office for National Statistics report revealed today.

The number, which is a surge of 43.6 per cent on the average for that time of year, includes fatalities of any cause, with Covid-19 only linked to 3.3 per cent of them.

And while the virus has killed more than 26 , 000 people in New York and sickened hundreds of The number of new hospitalizations related to the virus was at its lowest number since March 19, before the state’s shutdown began, Mr. Cuomo said. The excess deaths , the agency said in its brief report

More than 80% of deaths occurred in patients with cardiovascular diseases, which are known to be an important risk factor. Until July 2020, England counted about 30, 000 Covid deaths in the general population and about 20, 000 Covid-related deaths in nursing homes (which had to receive patients).

Deaths in private homes were nearly double the five-year average for between April 3 and May 7, when Britain was overwhelmed by the virus, and they have remained 'well above average' since March.

Yet in hospitals and care homes the number of deaths slipped below average in June, once the first wave of Covid-19 had blown over. It has now risen back up in care homes, but remains low in hospitals. Statisticians said the change represented a 'redistribution' in where people die.

Heart disease was the biggest cause of the deaths, followed by cancers and dementia – it is normal for these to be the main killers.

Experts are not sure whether the statistics are necessarily bad – many people choose to die at home rather than in hospital – but warn people might have missed out on proper end-of-life care, which includes painkillers, and that some of the people may actually have been saved if they were in a hospital.

Covid-19 crisis has led to excess heart disease deaths

Experts blamed the Government’s stay-at-home guidance, which has discouraged even the desperately ill from seeking medical help.

More than 9, 000 Londoners than normal have died since March . Almost 7,800 were directly caused by COVID-19. There were still more than 2, 000 ' excess deaths ' in the week between May 2 and May 8. Prime Minister Boris Johnson has previously been pushed to explain why there have been up

'Usually around 300 people die each day in their homes in England and Wales,' said Cambridge University statistician Professor David Spiegelhalter.

'The latest ONS analysis confirms that even after the peak of the epidemic this has stayed at around 400 a day and shows no sign of declining – that's one-third extra, very few of which are from Covid.

England's Covid-19 R rate DROPS for second week

  England's Covid-19 R rate DROPS for second week The UK's chief scientific officer Sir Patrick Vallance said in a TV briefing today that social distancing and lockdown rules are keeping the R rate lower than it was in the spring outbreak.But the Government's chief scientific adviser warned that the epidemic is 'growing everywhere' and that more action must be taken to bring down the R rate, which is somewhere between 1.3 and 1.5 for the UK meaning cases will continue to surge exponentially.

To date, more than 1.1 million confirmed virus deaths have been reported, although experts also believe that number is also an undercount. The US has the highest number of reported cases of any country in the world with 8,154,594.

'Non-Covid deaths in hospital have correspondingly declined, suggesting most of these deaths would normally have occurred in hospital, and people have either been reluctant to go, discouraged from attending, or the services have been disrupted.

'It is unclear how many of these lives could have been extended had they gone to hospital, for example among the 450 extra deaths from cardiac arrhythmias [abnormal heartbeats].

'Crucially, the ONS data cannot tell us about the quality of these deaths, particularly in terms of the end-of-life care provided to the patients and the support for their families.'

Heart disease was the leading cause of death at home for both sexes in England, the Office for National Statistics report showed.

In normal times in all settings, dementia is the biggest cause of death in the UK, but many people with the brain condition end up in care homes, while those with heart disease may still be able to live independently and are therefore more likely to die at home.

Deaths from other deadly conditions including cancers and dementia were also above average in private homes.

Covid-19 deaths in Britain could have been HALVED by an early lockdown

  Covid-19 deaths in Britain could have been HALVED by an early lockdown Professor Andrew Harvey, an emeritus professor at the University of Cambridge, calculated the death toll could have been halved if Britain went into lockdown on March 19, rather than March 26.The UK went into full lockdown on March 23, when 36 people were dying of Covid-19 per day on average.

Hospitals, on the other hand, saw a 28 per cent decrease in deaths from the condition (447 fewer).

Figures from Office for National Statistics (ONS), between the week ending March 20 and September 11

Stomach cancer also accounted for a 46 per cent surge at 1,906 deaths since March, compared to 1,303 expected according to the average.

And lung cancer accounted for a 29 per cent jump at 3,204 deaths in the home, compared to the expected level of 2,484.

Pollution 'may have contributed to 100,000 Covid-19 deaths'

  Pollution 'may have contributed to 100,000 Covid-19 deaths' An international team of scientists estimate 15% of Covid-19 deaths may be linked with pollution. In the UK, the figure is 14 per cent, which means nearly 6,300 deaths could have been avoided. Professor Lelieveld added: 'In the USA, more than 220,000 Covid deaths with a fraction of 18 per cent yields about 40,000 deaths attributable to air pollution.' © Provided by Daily Mail Pictured: Estimated percentages of Covid-19 mortality attributed to pollution.

For women, Dementia and Alzheimer's accounted for the biggest rise of 75 per cent when they increased to 3,116 from 1,781.

Breast cancer also accounted for a 47 per cent surge at 1,903 deaths since March, compared to 1,293 forecast in the average.

Of the 24,387 excess deaths recorded in England, as many as 14,272 (58 per cent) were in people aged between 70 and 89 - who are at greater risk of death.

Fiona Carragher, the director of research at the Alzheimer's Society, said isolation, fear of coronavirus and suspension of health and social care services contributed to the catastrophic increase in deaths from people with the debilitating condition.

'We saw it in care homes and now we're seeing the impact in the community,' she said.

'We already knew people with dementia have been worst hit not only by the virus itself, dying in their thousands, but also by the dreadful side-effects of lockdown.'

The ONS said the spike in deaths in private homes during the year may be because 'of deaths of people who would otherwise have died elsewhere, particularly in hospitals, where we see much lower levels of mortality than is usual for the time of year'.

Sarah Caul, the head of analysis deaths data at the ONS, said the trend this year had shown a 'redistribution' of fatalities.

Ms Caul said: 'While deaths in hospitals and care homes have dropped below the five-year average since the initial peak of the coronavirus pandemic, we’ve consistently seen deaths in private homes remain well above the five-year average.

'We have seen an overall increase of deaths as well as a redistribution of various causes of death.

  Britain's Covid-19 deaths rise by 55% in a week, ONS data shows An Office for National Statistics report released today showed 761 Brits fell victim to the disease in the week ending October 16.

'For instance, while deaths of heart disease are below average in hospital, it has been above average at home.

'It's a similar picture when looking at prostate cancer for males and dementia and Alzheimer's disease for females.

'Unlike the high numbers of deaths involving Covid-19 in hospitals and care homes, the majority of deaths in private homes are unrelated to Covid-19.'
