The Government gives daily updates about:
- confirmed COVID-19 cases - these are people who have tested positive for COVID-19.
- number of people who have been vaccinated
- deaths within 28 days of a positive Covid-19 test
- patients admitted to hospital
You can view specific data for each local authority.
Changes were made to the data published from 2 July. The data shows all people who tested positive, irrespective of where and how the tests were carried out.
The Government also publish the Covid-19 map which provides data for all areas of England.
These maps show the density of COVID-19 positive cases by Middle Super Output Areas (MSOA). These are longstanding statistical geographies built by the Office for National Statistics. They help compare geographic areas based on populations between 5,000 and 7,200. Cornwall, compared to many other areas of England, has had relatively low levels of cases. Less than 2 cases in any given MSOA will show as blank / white on the map. These low case numbers then make it appear as though there is no reporting. However; this isn’t the case. It is simply that there has been no significant concentration of cases in that reported week / period.
