The latest weekly COVID-19 death toll for Fife has been revealed.

A total of three people passed away in the Kingdom with coronavirus mentioned on their death certificate between June 6 and 12.

According to the figures from the National Records of Scotland (NRS), there were 38 coronavirus-related deaths across Scotland last week, an increase of 17 from the previous week.

Out of the 12 women and 26 men, 25 deaths were people aged 75 and over, 11 were aged between 65 and 74 and two were under 65.

There were 32 deaths in hospitals, five in care homes, and one at home or a non-institutional setting.

The places with the highest number of coronavirus-related deaths were North Lanarkshire and Perth and Kinross where four deaths were recorded.

In total 21 council areas (out of 32) had at least one death involving COVID-19 last week.

Pete Whitehouse, Director of Statistical Services, said: “The latest figures show that last week there were 38 deaths where COVID-19 was mentioned on the death certificate. This is 18 more deaths than the previous week.

“The number of deaths from all causes registered in Scotland in the latest week was 1,191, which is 126, or 12 per cent, more than the five year average. It is important to note that registered deaths will be higher than expected in week 23 due to bank holidays in week 22 causing fewer registrations that week.”
