New data predicts that Cornwall currently has over 70,000 active Covid-19 cases. This is the highest number the county has seen since the start of the pandemic.

The statistics come from the Zoe Covid Symptom Study, an app which tracks people with symptoms of the virus across the country. As of 5am this morning (January 5), it predicted Cornwall has 129,274 active cases per million people.

The numbers are further predicting a total of 72,153 active cases in Cornwall currently. This is the highest this prediction has been since the start of the Covid pandemic.

The study relies on submissions from users documenting their symptoms, which means it can track active cases where people are showing symptoms but have not taken tests. The data says that Cornwall had 2,344 contributors to the latest data.

Across the UK, 3,293,888 people are currently predicted to have symptomatic Covid-19. As well as Cornwall, the number of possible infections remains highest in Shropshire, Oxfordshire and Kirklees.

In Shropshire, the estimated number of active cases is 86,053, in Kirklees it is 68,989 while Shropshire has 54,385. The rate is calculated in each area by taking the number of active symptomatic cases as a proportion of the number of people contributing to the study, and working out the number of cases that would be ongoing in an area with a million people.
