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.
