New data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) has for the first time revealed the number of coronavirus deaths in the Sale area.

A map, included in the latest Office for National Statistics report, records that between March 1st and April 18th, there have been a total of 17 deaths in the Sale area linked to coronavirus.

The map breaks down the number of COVID-19 deaths by so-called ‘Middle Layer Super Output Areas’ (MSOAs), a size of geographic area used by the ONS.

It reveals there have been the following coronavirus deaths in Sale:

    • Ashton-on-Mersey – 6
    • Sale Centre, Brooklands – 4
    • Sale Moor – 5
    • North Sale – 2 (either side of Cross Street around Glebelands Road and Dane Road areas)

    The figures exclude any deaths of non-residents and cover deaths where coronavirus was the underlying cause or was mentioned on the death certificate as a contributory factor.
