Assessing the impact of COVID-19 in EnglandAssessing the impact of COVID-19 in England

A briefing by the Health Foundation concludes that, as of July 2020, there have been over 30,500 excess deaths among care home residents in England, and a further 4,500 excess deaths reported among people receiving domiciliary social care. While fewer domiciliary care users have died than care home residents, the proportion is higher, although the reasons are unclear. 

The Foundation commented that because of data gaps concerning domiciliary care, it is not currently possible to track and understand the spread of infection in this setting.
