Covid leaves northerners poorer and more likely to die than people in the south

The Mirror says: Northerners were more likely to die from Covid 19, spent almost six weeks longer in lockdowns and were made poorer than the rest of England during the first year of the pandemic, official figures have revealed.

Analysis of Government statistics show just how much worse the Covid crisis affected the North East, North West and Yorkshire and the Humber compared to the rest of England.

Public health experts said much of the blame for the increased mortality could be explained by the higher deprivation levels and worse pre-pandemic health in the North.

The report, commissioned by the Northern Health Science Alliance, found people living in the North had a 17% higher mortality rate due to Covid and 10% more hospital beds were occupied by Covid patients than in the rest of England.
