278 new coronavirus cases this weekend in Milton Keynes as case rate continues to rise

    There were 278 positive coronavirus cases recorded in Milton Keynes across Saturday and Sunday, according to data from Public Health England.

    This takes the total number of positive cases in our borough to 4,981 since the pandemic began.

    Milton Keynes coronavirus infection rate has now risen to 216.7 cases per 100,000 people - compared to 210.4 cases per 100,000 people yesterday.

    It comes as Milton Keynes is reported to be at ''increased risk' of entering Tier 3 restrictions, 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.

    Nationally, 18,447 cases were recorded today and a further 144 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.
