Coronavirus in Cornwall round up: Friday, April 16 2021

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

Today’s daily rise shows 16 new cases in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, 11 more than yesterday, taking the overall total since the start of the pandemic to 14,109.

The number of weekly cases is now 39 in the seven days leading to April 10. The most recent five days are not shown due to incomplete data.

The rise back in double figures means a small increase in the number of weekly cases, which is now 43 in the seven days leading up to April 11, compared to a weekly total of 39 yesterday.

As a result the weekly rate has also risen again, to 7.5 cases per 100,000 people, from 6.8 cases per 100,000 yesterday.

The number of people testing positive for coronavirus in the UK has increased by 2,596 in 24 hours. This takes the total to 4,383,732 nationally since the start of the pandemic.

NHS England has said the daily statement on hospital figures has 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 – has risen to 466 in the 28 days after a positive test, including one new death in the daily total – the first rise all week.

The number of deaths simply with Covid-19 on the death certificate now registers 565 up to April 12, the most recent data available. This figure is updated weekly on a Tuesday and includes one further death in the latest total.

The overall UK figures show 34 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 127,225. These figures include people in care home and other settings.

As of today (Friday, April 16) 32,574,221 people in the UK have had received their first Covid-19 vaccination dose, while 8,931,547 people have had their second dose.
