Most fell ill before lockdown
SEVEN in 10 of the working- age adults who died from coronavirus between March 9 and June 30 were likely to have acquired the infection before lockdown, figures show.
There were 5,330 fatalities involving Covid- 19 of 20 to 64- yearolds in England and Wales, said the Office for National Statistics ( ONS).
Of these, 72 per cent, or 3,839 deaths, occurred on or before April 25 and are likely to be as a result of an infection acquired before lockdown.
It is based on evidence that the maximum time from infection to symptom onset is 14 days, and there are 20 days on average from symptoms to death. The lockdown was linked to lower rates of death.
