According to the latest government data, the Isle of Wight has the lowest number of cases, per 100,000 people, in England and Wales.

In the seven days to October 10, there was a rolling average of 25 cases on the Island - 17.6 per 100,000.

Portsmouth had the highest rate in Hampshire, with 94.5 per 100,000.

However, because the data lags behind daily confirmed cases, a further 11 Covid-19 positives have been added to the Isle of Wight’s overall tally since October 10.

There have been 522 coronavirus cases here since the pandemic began, with a further daily update due out this afternoon.

This week, another death was included in the Isle of Wight’s figures.

The woman, who was aged in her 80s, died on September 1 and has yet to be included on the official NHS England figures.

It means more than 80 people have died on the Isle of Wight from the virus since the beginning of the year.

Recorded deaths are split between community (the hospice, at home, in a care home) and in St Mary's Hospital.

Meanwhile today (Friday), Sandown’s The Bay CE has confirmed a case within its school community.
