The number of new coronavirus cases in Cornwall remains unknown this evening due an issue with the website that collects the data.

Normally the figures are updated at around 4pm each day, but this evening a note on the government website states: "Due to an ongoing issue with Microsoft Azure, we are currently unable to update the data. We are monitoring the situation closely and will update the website as soon as the services are restored."

It means that the most recent figures are those from yesterday, when two new cases of coronavirus were confirmed in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly over the last 24 hours, taking the total number for the local authority area to 1,035 as of 4pm Sunday.

This represented a rate of 181 cases per 100,000 people, which still remains one of the lowest in the country.

Across the UK there were 368,504 cases of the virus – a rise of 3,330 on the previous day.

However, today's figures from NHS England over the number of new coronavirus-related deaths in the country have been confirmed and show no rise for Cornwall's hospitals.

Friday saw the first coronavirus-related hospital death in Cornwall recorded since July 2.

The patient died at the Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust, which has now had 66 deaths.

Cornwall Partnerships NHS Trust remains at 26, which makes a new combined total of 92 hospital deaths.

The most recent update from the Office for National Statistics, issued on Tuesday prior to the latest death, put Cornwall's overall coronavirus death toll at 210. This figure represents deaths in all settings, including hospitals, care homes and in the community.

Nationally the death of one more person who tested positive for Covid-19 has been recorded in the last 24 hours, bringing the total number of confirmed reported deaths in hospitals in England to 29,662.

Their family has been informed.

There were no deaths in the south west as a whole.
