The Isle of Wight community is continuing to work together to help fight against coronavirus with cases now down to just 41 a day.
Latest official data shows that the number of cases recorded on the Island each day is quickly coming down from the peak of 394 on 4th January. This would suggest that the third national lockdown is having a positive effect.
The rate of infection per 100,000 population in a rolling 7-day period has fallen significantly from 1,185 on 5th January to 470 on 20th January.
To date, a total of 5,903 cases of COVID-19 have been recorded on the Isle of Wight with 4,224 of those cases confirmed in January alone.
It’s unknown how many Islanders have now been vaccinated against COVID, but it is estimated to be in the region of 20,000 to 25,000 people.
