15 new confirmed cases of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) were recorded in the Isles of Scilly and Cornwall as of the 30th of September 2020. This would mean that there was an increase of roughly 7,108 cases all over the United Kingdom. The total case figure of the U.K. is now at 453,264.
A total of 1,378 positive cases was documented within Cornwall since the beginning of the pandemic. This brought the rate of transmission up to 241 confirmed cases for every 100,000 individuals. However, this increase in data is still low compared to other places.
Fortunately, no additional death tolls were recorded in Cornwall. However, 43 deaths were noted across the country, bringing the total deaths out of the confirmed cases to 30,005. The deceased patients were between 43 years old to 98 years old and had underlying health conditions and comorbidities.
The number of deaths increased from the 22nd of August to the 29th of September 2020. The majority of the demise was reported on or after the 24th of September 2020. Their families had been informed of this heartbreaking news.
Meanwhile, no deaths were stated along the south-west of Cornwall, as verified by the Office for National Statistics (ONS). The latter has been gathering figures for deaths in various locations, namely in the community, care homes, clinics, and hospitals.
The ONS’s most recent statistics were from the week of the 12th of September towards the 18th of September but were recorded up to the 26th day of that month. This implies that Cornwall’s total coronavirus death toll is still at 210.
Bear in mind that ONS’s information did not include the latest deaths as established by the National Health Service (NHS) of England. The recent death was said to be at the Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust, making the death count rise to 67. The Cornwall Partnerships NHS Trust is still at 26, thus closing it down to a total of 93 hospital deaths.
