Latest coronavirus figures show cases in town


After 12 weeks without any reported infections in Banbury COVID-19 cases have again been reported here

In the last seven days 14 new COVID-19 cases have been recorded in the north of the Cherwell District.

In Banbury town after 12 weeks without any reported infections the last seven days have seen 6 cases registered.   During the same period a further 8 cases have been recorded in villages south of the town.

The latest official figures note 3 new cases in the Hardwick area of Banbury and 3 in Grimsbury.   Another 8 people are recorded as having had positive COVID-19 tests in Deddington, Steeple Aston and the Heyfords.

Two weeks ago 4 new cases were recorded in Bodicote, Adderbury and Bloxham.

It is unclear whether these latest cases are tests during the last week, or the effects of data being added into the system after a technical issue resulted in 15,841 across the UK being left out of the reported daily totals.   The missing data was for the period between September 25 and October 2.

On Tuesday the UK recorded another 14,542 new coronavirus cases.   The increase was almost 2,000 more than on Monday, with hospital admissions in England hitting a four-month high.   Another 76 deaths linked to the virus were also reported on Tuesday, taking the total to 42,445.
