This brings the cumulative total to 506, a rate per 100,000 population of 356.9. The latest R number for the South East remains at 1.2-1.4.

Live maps of positive tests
An interactive map of cases on the Isle of Wight shows that the Ventnor, Wroxall and St Lawrence area has four positive tests this week. The remaining 26 cases are spread across the Island, but it’s not clear where as they only show up on the map if over two per area.
No new deaths
The Office for National Statistics reveals that in week 40 there have been no new deaths where Coronavirus (Covid-19) was registered as the cause of death.
That means the total of deaths where Covid-19 is stated on the death certificate remains at 86.
The figure was adjusted from 89 to 86 to take into account those counted where the death occurred more than 28 days after testing positive for Covid-19.
Our thoughts are with all those who have lost loved ones and with the care and NHS staff who continue to work hard to help save lives.
