Another new confirmed case of COVID-19 has been identified on the Isle of Wight – but it’s only the 2nd new case since 14th June and the 5th this month.
The total number of cases of coronavirus locally now sits at 204 – a rise of just 1 from 203. Since the beginning of June, that number has risen by just 5 cases out of a population of over 140,000.
The infection rate is said to be 144.1. This figure is different from the reproduction rate (R), which was previously estimated to be around 0.4 – but is likely to be lower now.
