Three new cases of coronavirus have been confirmed in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, according to the latest figures.

There were 930 lab-confirmed cases of the virus in the local authority area as of 4.17pm on Monday, with that figure rising by three to 933 as of 10.39pm yesterday.

Across the UK there have now been 306,293 cases of the virus – an increase of 670 on the previous day.

The number of deaths in Cornwall's hospitals remains the same today, staying at 91 where it has sat since July 2. Sunday marked exactly one month since the last recorded coronavirus death in Cornwall hospitals.

Last week the Office for National Statistics, which has been collating numbers for all settings, including hospitals, care homes and the wider community, confirmed there had been no increase in the overall total of 208.

The most recent ONS figures relate to deaths in the week of July 11 and July 17, but were registered up to July 25.

Nationally a further 13 people who tested positive for Covid-19 have died, bringing the total number of confirmed reported deaths in hospitals in England to 29,371.

Patients were aged between 52 and 92 years old and all had known underlying health conditions. Their families have been informed.

No deaths have been reported in the south west in the last 24 hours.

Three deaths have also been reported by NHS England where there was no positive Covid-19 test result, but the virus had been documented as a direct or underlying cause on the death certificate.

The rate of infection in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly stands at 163 cases per 100,000 people, far lower than the England average of 469.
