Covid facts and figures for our area

Just when I thought our (wider) area was getting a grip on Covid-19, there have been more cases in some clusters.

However, Bude, Poundstock and Kilkhampton and Hartland Coast areas are all data suppressed as figures for new cases to 19th January on the interactive map are below 3 per area.

However, Holsworthy, Bradworthy and Welcombe have had a small rise in cases to 7 (still well below average compared to English figures). Crackington and Tontagel also sit at 7 cases for the period, while Camelford and Tresmeer are down to 3. Launceston has had a drop to 13. Torridge dropped to 38.

Higher clusters (but still seeing a drop) are still at Bodmin. Cornwall as a whole saw a drop to 1279 cases. Devon dropped to 1215 cases.

At a wider level, government figures show there have been more than 3.5 million confirmed cases of coronavirus in the UK and more than 97,000 people have died.
