272 new coronavirus cases in Milton Keynes today as case rate rises above 350 for first time

    There were 272 positive coronavirus cases recorded in Milton Keynes on Friday, according to data from Public Health England.

    It means the case rate in our city has accelerated further and now stands at 355.2 cases per 100,000 people.

    The news comes as 'more than a ward’s worth' of covid-positive patients have been admitted to Milton Keynes Hospital in the past 24 hours.

    Milton Keynes will enter Tier 3 restrictions from midnight this evening - the highest level of restrictions.

    Nationally, 28,507 cases were recorded today and a further 489 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.
