Where COVID-19 is recorded in any section of the 'Cause of Death’ on a death registration as a cause of death, the Superintendent Registrar publicly reports the death as a ‘COVID-19 related’ death statistic. This is in line with international reporting of COVID-19 deaths. Therefore all 69 reported deaths were COVID-19 related deaths.
Where a person was diagnosed with (or suspected to have had) COVID-19 at the time of their death but it did not cause their death, it is not certified as a cause of death and COVID-19 does not form part of the Cause of Death on the death registration. It therefore would not be reported by the Superintendent Registrar as a COVID-19 related death statistic.
The average age recorded for the 69 registered COVID-19 related deaths is 81.7 years.
The average age recorded for death in 2018, 2019 and 2020 was as follows:
