The number of recorded coronavirus cases in Herefordshire has risen by 100 over the past 24 hours, latest figures show.

Public Health England figures show that 4,066 people had been confirmed as testing positive for Covid-19 by 9am on Wednesday (January 6) in Herefordshire, up from 3,966 the same time on Tuesday.

It means over the past seven days, the total number of cases has risen by 660.

The graph below shows the number of cases in Herefordshire by date of test, and not the day when the cases were published by PHE.

The Government website says the last five days' data is incomplete, thought to be due to a delay in results being processed.

Across the UK, the number of recorded cases increased by 62,322 over the period, to 2,836,801.


Cumulative case counts include patients who are currently unwell, have recovered and those that have died.

It comes as NHS England confirmed three more patients at Herefordshire's hospitals had died after testing positive for coronavirus.

The latest official figures show 103 people had died at the Wye Valley NHS Trust as of 4pm on Tuesday after a positive Covid-19 test.
