Covid data for Devon shows where numbers are rising

New official data shows where coronavirus infection rates and cases are rising across Devon.

Robert Rowlands 

Statistics released from the Government today show there have been 142 new cases reported across the county.

That takes the total since the pandemic arrived to 12,067.

Analysis of clusters in the county – areas where more than two cases have been reported – shows where infection rates are rising, falling and staying the same.

The data for the seven days to December 26 shows that 10 areas of East Devon have seen their rate rise according to the new data.

The same is true of eight areas of Exeter, nine areas of Mid Devon, two areas of North Devon, eight areas of South Hams, six areas of Teignbridge, five areas of Torbay, six areas of Torridge and five areas of West Devon.

In addition, one new area without a cluster has emerged – Paignton Central in Torbay.

Five other areas remain cluster-free, meaning they have two cases or fewer: Oakehampton, Seaton, Totnes Town, Great Torrington and Ipplepen & Broadhempston.

The area with the most positive cases remains Chagford, Princetown and Dartmoor (64) after an outbreak at the prison.
