    Conservative MP and former housing secretary Robert Jenrick said: ‘I welcome the ONS statistics showing that deaths of those sleeping rough on our streets are at the lowest rate in three years.

    ‘Every death is a tragedy, and numbers dying of drug related causes shows us again that rough sleeping is a health issue as much as a housing one, and needs urgent attention by the NHS and Government.

    ‘These statistics show the steps that by the Government, like the everyone in programme I brought forward as the Secretary of State during the pandemic have saved many lives.

    ‘As we emerge from the pandemic, we need to make sure we do not lose sight on our manifesto pledge to end rough sleeping by the end of this parliament.

    总共 688 homeless people died in 2020, 官方数字显示

    总共 688 deaths of homeless people were registered last year in England and Wales, 包含 13 deaths involving coronavirus, according to new estimates.

    It is the first time the annual number of registered deaths has fallen since 2014, the Office for National Statistics (我们) 说过.

    But it said the 11.6 per cent decrease from 2019 was not statistically significant.

    The estimated number of deaths is also 42.7 per cent higher than it was in 2013, when the ONS started collecting this data.

    The ONS also said the 2020 figures may underestimate the true number of homeless deaths.

    It said the Everyone In scheme, which saw thousands of homeless people rapidly brought to safety at the start of the pandemic, had made it more difficult for it to identify homeless people in its records.

    People were given emergency accommodation such as hotels to keep them safe and, with no centralised record of these locations, it ‘has made it difficult to identify deaths of homeless people housed under this scheme’, the ONS said.

    The figures include the deaths of people sleeping rough or using emergency or temporary accommodation at or around the time of death.

    The total figure includes identified deaths and an estimate of the most likely number of additional death registrations not identified as concerning homeless people.

    Due to delays in death registrations, about half of the deaths registered in 2020 occurred before this year, the ONS said.
