The latest information relating to Covid-19 has now been updated.

Today's daily rise shows five new cases in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, following ten yesterday, taking the overall total since the start of the pandemic to 14,208.

The weekly cases have risen back up to 64 in the seven days leading up to April 23 – the most recent five days not shown due to incomplete data. This is from 61 in yesterday's update.

As a result the weekly rate has also risen slightly to 11.2 cases per 100,000 people, compared to 10.7 cases per 100,000 people yesterday.

The number of people testing positive for coronavirus in the UK has increased by 2,166 in 24 hours. This takes the total to 4,411,797 nationally since the start of the pandemic.

NHS England hospital figures have still not resumed, after a two-week absence, despite the health body saying that the daily statement was only temporarily paused for a week.

However, trust figures today show that there have been no further deaths recorded since last Friday – the first since April 8 – which took place at the Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust two days earlier on Wednesday last week, April 21.

The total number of Covid-related deaths at the Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust is now at 202 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 now 264.

The Government dashboard reports that the overall number of deaths in Cornwall – including deaths in care homes and other settings – remains at 469 in the 28 days after a positive test.

The number of deaths simply with Covid-19 on the death certificate is now 569 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 29 more people to have died within 28 days of their first positive test result. This takes the total number of UK deaths within 28 days to 127,480. These figures include people in care home and other settings.

As of today (Wednesday, April 28) 33,959,908 people in the UK have had received their first Covid-19 vaccination dose, while 13,581,076 people have had their second dose.
