Roche, Goss Moor and Newquay West record new COVID clusters

New figures show that Cornwall has nine new confirmed cases of coronavirus.

Across the border in Devon, 28 new cases were confirmed, meaning a rise of 37 in the two counties.

That figure is the lowest recorded for six days.

The news comes on the day that it was also confirmed that no new deaths among people to have tested positive for coronavirus were reported in Devon’s hospitals, making it three months since the last fatality was recorded.

Friday, June 26 was the last day that a death from someone in hospital who had tested positive for COVID-19 was announced, with that having occurred in Plymouth’s Derriford Hospital on June 24.

In Cornwall, Roche & Goss Moor and Newquay West have both recorded new clusters.

In terms of larger clusters, Pool & Illogan Highway goes to 28 from 23 and Camborne East to 16 from 13.

However, St Agnes & Mount Hawke drop off the map of clusters.

No new deaths were recorded across the whole of the South West.
