In south Gloucestershire, nine more people have tested positive for Covid-19 in the past 24 hours, bringing the district total to 321, according to government figures released today (Sunday 26 April).
In Bath and northeast Somerset, three more positive Covid-19 tests were returned, bringing the total to 201.
North Somerset now has 205 cases after an increase of five.
The total number of laboratory-confirmed cases in the UK has reached 152,840 while the number of hospital deaths now stands at 20,732 20,319, a daily increase of 413.
