Cases of Covid-19 continue to rise on the Isle of Wight, with the latest data just released by the government today (Thursday).

85 new coronavirus cases have been confirmed.

Yesterday (Wednesday) there were 75.

It means there have now been 7,677 cases on the Isle of Wight alone, since the start of the pandemic.

The Island's rolling average, per 100,000 in the seven days to July 17, has shot up to 249.7.

The increase is shown above on the interactive map, the darker the colour is, the more cases per 100,000 people there are.

The Island has the lowest rolling average rate in England, but parts of Wales and Scotland have much lower rates.

The sharpest rise is in people aged under 60.

As the County Press reported earlier, one Covid-positive patient is in the Intensive Care Unit at St Mary's Hospital.

We are being urged to remain cautious, after restrictions were eased earlier this week.
