More news, no ads


Covid cases in West Norfolk are continuing to fall, though more slowly than in recent weeks.

Data for the seven days to yesterday showed there were 883 new infections in the borough.

But, while that is little more than a quarter of the weekly total recorded just a few weeks ago, it is now only 8.8 per cent lower than the previous week.

The borough’s rolling infection rate, as of last Friday, February 18, stood at 566 cases per 100,000 people.

No new deaths have been recorded at Lynn’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital, according to the latest available NHS figures, since three deaths were reported at the weekend.

The total Covid-related death toll at the Gayton Road site since the start of the pandemic remains at 553.

And no new deaths within 28 days of a positive test were recorded in the latest seven day period.

But 72 people were being treated for Covid in the QEH, during the seven days to February 13, up by 10 on the previous week, with 11 admitted in the latest daily figures.

The figures were reported as the remaining coronavirus restrictions in England were lifted today.
