The number of confirmed coronavirus cases in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly has risen by one again.

It takes the figure back to 899 cases overall - the same figure it was on Sunday evening, before unexpectedly dropping back to 898 on Monday.

In last night's update from Public Health England the figure was back up by one again, however.

Across the UK there have now been 291,373 confirmed cases of the virus - a rise of 398 in 24 hours.

The number of hospital deaths in Cornwall related to coronavirus remains at 91.

This figure has not risen since July 2, when one new death was recorded after exactly a month of no increases.

However, yesterday the Office for National Statistics, which has been collating weekly data for hospitals, care homes and the wider community, confirmed that the overall number of deaths for Cornwall had risen by two during the previous week, to 207.

Nationally a further 22 people who tested positive for the coronavirus are reported to have died in today's figures from NHS England, bringing the total number of confirmed reported deaths in hospitals in England to 29,125.

Patients were aged between 54 and 93 years old. All patients had known underlying health conditions and their families have been informed.

A further six deaths were reported as having no positive Covid-19 rest result but where the virus was recorded as a direct or underlying cause of death.
