As of Monday July 26th, Public Health England has revised the figures for the total number of confirmed cases of Covid-19 in our region, to exclude any false positives. People who tested positive more than once are only counted once, on the date of their first positive test.
A total of 43,002 confirmed cases have been recorded in Worcestershire. Of those cases, 8,291 have been recorded in Bromsgrove, 3,800 in Malvern Hills, 7,526 in Redditch, 8,348 in Worcester, 7,974 in Wychavon and 7,063 in Wyre Forest.
The Office for National Statistics published updated information regarding the number of deaths from Covid-19 since the start of the pandemic to show the number of people who had had a positive test result for COVID-19 and died within 28 days of the first positive test. The data for Worcestershire has been revised and now shows a total of 1,200 deaths in the county from Coronavirus across all settings, an increase of 2 on the previous week.
