Both daily cases of coronavirus and the number of related hospital deaths in Cornwall have risen in the latest data.

Today's daily Covid-19 case figures in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly show 260 new people tested positive for the virus in the previous 24 hours, up on yesterday's figure of 244 and Saturday's figure of 234.

The weekly total number of people with at least one positive Covid-19 test result (either lab-reported or lateral flow device) is on a five-day delay. The latest data shows a combined 2,299 people testing positive in the seven days leading up to last Wednesday, November 3, a fall on yesterday's 2,345 weekly total.

The weekly case rate average has now risen to 399.5 cases per 100,000, down from a 407.5 average yesterday. For this figure the government uses the mid-2020 estimates for the permanent population of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

The overall total of cases in Cornwall since the start of the pandemic is now 59,345.

The daily number of people testing positive for coronavirus in the UK shows 32,322 new cases, up from 30,305 yesterday.

This takes the total of cases since the start of the pandemic to 9,333,891.

In the most recent update from NHS England the combined number of Covid-19 related deaths in total in the Duchy’s hospitals since the start of the pandemic rose to 324.

The total number recorded at the Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust since the start of the pandemic is now 260, with three new deaths recorded - one on October 31 and two on November 4, all reported in today's update (Monday). They are in addition to two on Tuesday last week (November 2) that were reported in Friday's update. At the Cornwall Partnership NHS Trust the figure is still 64.

The government’s update, which shows the overall number of deaths in Cornwall – including deaths in care homes and other settings – remains at 574 deaths in the 28 days since a positive Covid case, with none reported today after two yesterday. It is likely that these are among the deaths reported by NHS England today, due to a difference in reporting times.

The total number of deaths in Cornwall simply with Covid-19 on the death certificate increased to 657 in the most recent data available this week. It shows that eight new deaths occurred in the week leading up to Friday, October 22, the most recent date given.

The overall UK figures show 57 more people having died within 28 days of their first positive test result, down from 62 and a large fall on 155 on Saturday.

Total UK deaths within 28 days since the start of the pandemic stand at 141,862. These figures include people in care home and other settings.

Up to Sunday, November 7, 50,262,735 people in the UK have had their first Covid-19 vaccination dose, while 45,852,677 have had their second dose. A total of 10,302,544 have had their booster jab or third dose.

Cornwall's figures have not been updated since Saturday, when 447,517 people had received their first dose and 417,528 their second dose. A note on the government dashboard reads: "Because of processing issues there is no update to vaccination data for regions, local authorities and MSOAs in England. Figures missing from November 6, 2021 have been added in today's release."
