3 more cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed on the Isle of Wight, according to the latest data from Public Health England.
A total of 509 cases of the potentially deadly virus have now been identified on the Island since the start of the pandemic earlier this year.
The latest 2 cases were confirmed on 9th October, with 8 cases confirmed the day before. Further cases are expected when today’s data is released.
So far this month 32 cases of COVID-19 have been listed on the Isle of Wight – a stark contrast to the 10 cases confirmed in the whole of August.
Despite the rise in cases, there have been no Island deaths from COVID-19 in over 6 weeks.
As previously reported by Island Echo, the Isle of Wight is considered one of the safest places in the country and has escaped tougher restrictions being enforced elsewhere.
