So, it’s the weekend again, and we will take a look at what’s happening in our area.
The interactive map takes us to 8th February, and it is good to see that numbers are not recorded (as low) for Hartland Coast, Kilkhampton to Poundstock, Bude, Crackington Haven, Camelford and Launceston. The only close area showing cases is 3 in Holsworthy, Bradworthy and Welcombe.
Torridge is down to 11 cases, Devon to 458, and Cornwall to 464.
