214 new coronavirus cases reported in Milton Keynes today - with case rate increasing to 236 per 100k

    There were 214 positive coronavirus cases recorded in Milton Keynes on Monday, according to data from Public Health England.

    This takes the total number of positive cases in our borough to 5,195 since the pandemic began - of which almost 500 have been in the past three days alone.

    Milton Keynes coronavirus infection rate has now risen sharply to 236 cases per 100,000 people - compared to 216 cases per 100,000 people in yesterday's update.

    Milton Keynes Hospital have "more patients with COVID-19 now than ever before", with the coronavirus situation in Milton Keynes having "deteriorated" over the past few days, according to the Council Leader.

    The government are set to announce this coming Wednesday 16th December any changes to coronavirus tiers for local areas across England, and there are now expectations that Milton Keynes could move to the highest Tier 3 alert level.

    Nationally, 20,263 cases were recorded today and a further 232 deaths.

    It is important to follow coronavirus prevention measures to minimise the spread of COVID-19.

    MKFM previously stopped reporting on coronavirus cases due to the lack of testing, and possible misrepresentation of cases within the community, but now that there are more tests available we have decided to provide frequent updates. 

    We provide the data given to us by Public Health England, and unfortunately this does not cover the number of people who have recovered/left hospital.
