The number of deaths registered in England and Wales in the week ending 13 November 2020 (Week 46) was 12,254; this was 442 more deaths than in Week 45.
In Week 46, the number of deaths registered was 18.4% above the five-year average (1,904 deaths higher).
Of the deaths registered in Week 46, 2,466 mentioned “novel coronavirus (COVID-19)”, accounting for 20.1% of all deaths in England and Wales; this is an increase of 529 deaths compared with Week 45 (when there were 1,937 deaths involving COVID-19, accounting for 16.4% of all deaths).
In recent weeks, the positivity rate in England has shown signs of levelling; during the most recent week (15 to 21 November 2020), we estimate 633,000 people (95% credible interval: 599,200 to 668,200) within the community population in England had the coronavirus (COVID-19), equating to around 1 in 85 people (95% credible interval: 1 in 90 to 1 in 80).
Over the last week, positivity rates have increased in the East Midlands and have continued to decrease in the North West, while the West Midlands, East of England, London, South East and South West now also appear to be decreasing; the highest positivity rates are seen in Yorkshire and The Humber, the North West and the North East.
Over the last week, increases in the positivity rate can only be seen in secondary school-age children and positivity rates have decreased in adults aged 35 years and over, whilst it appears that rates among the youngest age group as well as those aged school year 12 to age 24 years and 25 to 34 years are levelling off; rates remain highest among secondary school-age children and young adults.
