It has nearly been a whole year since we all went into the first national lockdown - and what a tough 12 months it has been for everyone in the Harborough district.

We have published many figures over that time, showing both the rise and decline of Covid-19 cases, as well as the steady increase of vaccinations.

Sadly, we have also published the data on people who died due to the virus.

Overall, 13.73 per cent of deaths across the Harborough district were due to Covid-19 (145 of the overall 1,056 registered deaths were due to Covid, according to the official figures).

This week's latest data shows the percentage of deaths across the Harborough district caused by Covid-19 registered between between March 2020 and February 2021.
