According to the Office for National Statistics (ONS), 90,232 people died in England and Wales between March 1 and April 17, of which 20,283 were from coronavirus.
During this time, London had the highest age-standardised death rate with 85.7 coronavirus deaths per 100,000 population.
This is significantly higher than any other region and almost double the next highest rate.
The local authorities with the highest age-standardised coronavirus mortality rates were also all London Boroughs.
The West Midlands has the second highest death rate, followed by the North West and the North East – while the South West recorded the fewest number of deaths from the bug.
The map above, created by the ONS shows all coronavirus deaths in England and Wales which were registered before April 18.
The green dots marking the number of deaths in each area are placed at the centre of the local area they represent – and do not mark the exact spot where those deaths occurred.
The size of the circle is proportional to the number of deaths – meaning the bigger the circle, the greater number of deaths in that region.
The dots exclude the number of non-residents who have may have died in the area.
Figures show the deadly bug has also killed twice the amount of people in poorer areas compared with wealthy regions.
Between March 1 and April 17, the poorest parts of England saw 55.1 coronavirus deaths per 100,000 population, compared with 25.3 deaths per 100,000 in the wealthiest areas.
In Wales, the most deprived regions suffered 44.6 coronavirus deaths per 100,000 population – almost twice as many as the least deprived area with 23.2 deaths per 100,000 population.
