The only place in Wales to have recorded no deaths due to Covid-19 was LLandudno Junction South and Llansanffraid Glan, Conwy.

The report also said that in January, 2021, the mortality rate in Wales was highest in Bridgend.

The ONS report said: "Some neighbourhoods saw more than twice as many residents die than would have been expected for the time of year during the spring and summer of 2020, while excess deaths were spread out over a longer period in the following autumn and winter.

"At an individual neighbourhood level between March and July, 2020, some of the hardest hit places for overall excess deaths were spread across the north of England, Midlands and south of England.

"There were around 200 neighbourhoods where the number of deaths was at least double what would normally have been expected during those five months."

The report added that, as 2021 began with a third national lockdown, there were many areas in both England and Wales with high mortality rates.

"In January, 2021, the mortality rate in England was highest in Barking and Dagenham. In Wales, the highest was in Bridgend.

"Since March, 2021, deaths in England and Wales returned to average or near to average for the time of year, although deaths due to Covid-19 increased again in July."
