Deaths and test results
FIVE more positive test results have been announced today. That brings the cumulative total to 975.
The 7 day rolling average of positive tests reached 2.57 on Monday – the highest figure since early June.
The figures are likely to be of concern to residents. They are still below the national average and we don’t know how many tests were completed and therefore the percentage which were positive.
However, a statement from the authorities on the characteristics of the new cases is overdue.
On a more encouraging note, there have been no more deaths in any location, including the hospital and care homes.
