Published at:

The number of people who have died from, or at least with, COVID-19 has now hit 261 following 7 further deaths in the community and 1 at St Mary’s Hospital.

According to the latest data, a total of 140 deaths have been recorded in hospital, 109 in care homes, 8 at home and 1 at the hospice since the start of the pandemic almost a year ago. 2 deaths have also been recorded ‘elsewhere’ and 1 in a ‘other communal setting’.

Cases across the Isle of Wight have fallen significantly since the beginning of January with less than 10 cases a day now being recorded. The rate per 100,000 people is back down to 50.1 – where it was in mid-December.

In Ryde, you wouldn’t even think a lockdown was in place at all this time. people and vehicles rushing about everywhere. I’m dreading the lockdown ending, it’s bad enough now.

Don’t have to be out and about to see and hear the traffic going by continuously and people shouting in the street up and down all day past my house.
