COVID-19 update as of 25 November 2020

Coronavirus weekly figures - 25 November 2020

 

This week, in Central Bedfordshire we’ve seen 256 new COVID-19 cases. This is 90 cases less than last week which is positive. However, this week the report also includes data on hospital admissions which is a concern as admissions are increasing and we have also sadly recorded six deaths. 

Also, it is important to consider the situation in other areas close to us: 

  • Luton – 642 cases and 4 deaths
  • Milton Keynes – 449 cases and 5 deaths
  • Bedford - 223 cases and 6 deaths

Let’s hope this downward trend in new cases continues in the coming weeks, to do this we must not be complacent, we all need to continue playing our part in controlling the virus and protecting others by:

  • washing our hands regularly
  • wearing a face covering
  • socially distancing from anyone we don’t live with

If you have symptoms (details on the NHS website), test positive or are asked to isolate by Test and Trace you MUST do so and can be fined if you don’t. There is support and advice available to you if you need help to isolate.
