Another person has died on the Isle of Wight, according to the latest Covid-19 data.

It brings the total number of Islanders, whose hospital deaths have been linked to coronavirus, to 57.

The government records information on patients who have died in English hospitals within 28 days of testing positive for Covid-19, or where Covid-19 was mentioned on a death certificate.

According to data published separately, a further 51 Islanders have died in the community (in care homes, at home and in the hospice), since the start of the pandemic.

December has been responsible for nearly half the total number of Covid-19 positives on the Isle of Wight since records began (March).

We entered Tier Four on New Year's Eve - with the key message being 'Stay at Home', alongside the #HandsFaceSpace mantra.

Earlier the Isle of Wight Council leader Dave Stewart called for more social distancing among Islanders out walking and exercising.

Another 133 cases were added to government data today (Saturday), as pressure grows for the government to reverse its decision to open primary schools to all pupils on Monday.

Nationally, 74,570 people have died in the UK.
