Three more positive Covid-19 tests have been recorded on the Isle of Wight - bringing the Island's total since the start of the pandemic to 959.

There have been 331 cases on the Isle of Wight this month (November) - more than any other so far this year.

In October, 160 coronavirus cases were recorded.

There were 33 on the Isle of Wight in September and just eight in August.

Four were recorded in July, 18 in June and 200 in May.

The Isle of Wight's mobile testing unit first opened in April, when 182 positive tests were recorded.

There were 19 cases in March, when the data record started.

Earlier in the month, there was a change to how and where some cases are recorded, such as in the case of students and second home owners. The County Press was told, however, that this was only a small number of people.

The seven day rolling average for the Isle of Wight (for the seven days to November 23) is 39.5 (per 100,000 people), which means we are below average, compared to Hampshire's 92.1, Portsmouth's 163.3, and 120.7 in Southampton, among other parts of the country.

Earlier this week, a new death was recorded at St Mary's Hospital, the fourth this month.

The person died on November 19, taking the total number of hospital deaths to 47.

In total on the Island, 96 people have died from a Covid-related condition, with 45 in care homes, 3 at home and 1 in the hospice.
