The area with most COVID related deaths in Peterborough was Central Park, with 35 since the start of the pandemic, making up 25 per cent of all deaths.

The area with the highest percentage of deaths was in Bretton Park, where the 29 COVID related deaths made up 31 per cent of the 95 total deaths during the pandemic.

Six of the 22 areas of Peterborough saw COVID deaths make up at least 20 per cent of all deaths over the past 12 months.
