Coronavirus cases in Wiltshire have gone up by one compared to the previous seven-day period.

In the week to September 24, Public Health England figures show a total of 52 cases, one more than in the seven days to September 17 when 51 cases were recorded.

The rate of new cases per 100,000 people has also gone up slightly to reflect the minor increase in cases. It has gone from 10.2 to 10.4.

The figures are based on tests carried out in laboratories (pillar one of the Government’s testing programme) and in the wider community (pillar two).

Data for the most recent three days (September 25-27) has been excluded as it is incomplete and likely to be revised.

According to the government's coronavirus dashboard last updated at 4pm on Sunday, there have been 1,625 confirmed cases in the Wiltshire Council area since the start of the pandemic.

Eight of these were reported yesterday.
