More than 10,000 people have unexpectedly died in their own home since mid-June amid fears Britons are STILL avoiding NHS for help

Seven-hundred 'excess deaths' in private homes have been registered each week in England and Wales alone since the pandemic began to die down.

But only an average of 21 each week are down to the coronavirus, according to data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS). And rates have plummeted in recent weeks to as low as seven.

Data shows 30,000 people have died in their homes in the UK since the start of the pandemic in March, and the pattern does not appear to be slowing. For comparison, deaths in hospitals and care homes are currently lower than expected.
