The latest information relating to Covid-19 has now been updated and it shows another jump in new weekly cases.

Today's daily rise shows five new cases in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, taking the overall total since the start of the pandemic to 14,145.

However, there has been a jump again in the number of weekly cases, which has increased to 62 in the seven days leading up to April 15 – the most recent five days not shown due to incomplete data.

This follows another sudden jump to 54 on Sunday, before that fell to 52 yesterday, after low weekly totals of 44 on Saturday and 43 on Friday.

As a result the weekly rate has also risen to 10.8 cases per 100,000 people, from the 9.2 cases per 100,000 yesterday, 9.4 cases on Sunday – and as low as 7.7 cases on Saturday and 7.5 cases on Friday.

The number of people testing positive for coronavirus in the UK has increased by 2,524 in 24 hours. This takes the total to 4,393,307 nationally since the start of the pandemic.

NHS England hospital figures have still not resumed after the health body said last week that the daily statement had temporarily paused for a week.

However, trust figures show that no further deaths have been recorded since April 8, when one further hospital death was reported at the Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust.

The total number of Covid-related deaths at the Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust is still at 201 while at the Cornwall Partnership NHS Trust it remains at 62.

The combined number of Covid-19 deaths in total in Cornwall's hospitals since the start of the pandemic is at 263.

The Government dashboard today shows that the overall number of deaths in Cornwall – including deaths in care homes and other settings – remains at 468 in the 28 days after a positive test, following two new deaths in Saturday's daily total. It is thought these may be the two further deaths reported at a Sidmouth care home in an update from Devon and Cornwall Police last.

The number of deaths simply with Covid-19 on the death certificate has now risen to 567 in the most recent data available. This figure is updated weekly on a Tuesday and includes two further deaths in the latest total.

The overall UK figures show 33 more people to have died within 28 days of their first positive test result, after just four recorded yesterday. This takes the total number of UK deaths within 28 days to 127,307. These figures include people in care home and other settings.

As of today (Tuesday, April 20) 33,032,120 people in the UK have had received their first Covid-19 vaccination dose, while 10,425,790 people have had their second dose.
