According to the latest reports, no increase in the number of coronavirus cases has been reported in Cornwall as of July 29, 2020. The isle of Scilly also reported no cases as of the moment. The number of deaths also remained constant in Cornwall hospitals standing at 91, which has been so since July 2. Overall, the number of cases in the U.K has risen by 581, bringing the number of cases to 300,692.
According to the Office of National Statistics, which collects numbers from hospitals, the wider community and daycare homes have shown that the number of deaths has not been recorded within the last week. The total number of fatalities has remained 208, which was similar a week ago. This information also means that it’s the third week in a row whereby no home care deaths have been recorded in Cornwall hospitals.
The Office of National Statistics data shows deaths and cases arising from coronavirus from July 11 to July 17, but they were only registered on July 25 in Cornwall. Nationally, the number of deaths has increased in hospitals to 29,317.
Fourteen more patients succumbed today due to the coronavirus, thereby pushing the death tally a notch higher. The dead patients were between the ages of 45 and 100 years. All of their families were already informed about the news, and the patients had known underlying conditions.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, restaurants, cafes, and bars in Cornwall have decided to give a waiver of 50% on food, which is part of the government’s scheme called Eat Out to Help Out. Customers who take up the offer will receive 10 pounds when they pay for either food or drink, 50% off. The government’s scheme is another way of boosting the hospitality sector, which has been adversely affected by the coronavirus pandemic. By giving people waivers, customers can buy anything despite these difficult times.
