76 coronavirus cases and two virus-linked deaths announced in Milton Keynes today

    There were 76 new coronavirus cases and two virus-linked deaths announced in Milton Keynes today, according to the latest data.

    The latest update brings the total number of people tested positive in Milton Keynes since the start of the pandemic to 19,003 - of which 345 were in the past seven days.

    The 7-day case rate, or infection rate, in Milton Keynes has risen slightly from 129.9 cases yesterday to 130.6 cases per 100,000 people today.

    This remains higher than the national case rate of 115.3 cases per 100,000 people. 

    Nationally, there were an additional 9,985 people tested positive today with 323 deaths within 28 days of a positive test.

    Two of these deaths took place in Milton Keynes taking the city's total COVID-linked death toll to 446 since the start of the pandemic. 

    MKFM has now changed the way we report COVID-linked deaths. There are three ways that deaths are recorded, and we previously used the official NHS data just covering deaths in hospitals. 

    These deaths were announced by the NHS days after the deaths occurred, and only included those in a hospital setting.
