There have been 203 new confirmed cases of coronavirus in Devon, government data shows.

While today’s figures are “slightly higher” than last week’s numbers, they are “skewed” by the backdating of some positive cases in North Devon and Torridge, local democracy reporter Daniel Clark explains.

The figures show cases recorded between November 17 and November 23, but while there have been 39 new cases recorded in North Devon in this time frame, eight of these are “historic” cases (occurring before two weeks ago).

Similarly, in Torridge the latest data shows there have been 40 new cases recorded, but 10 of these are historic positive cases.

Across the South West, there have been 203 new cases confirmed and 22 new deaths recorded in the region.

The figures come as people across Devon prepare for the end of the second National Lockdown in England next week, but the beginning of the Tier 2 restrictions.
